KUTZTOWN – In the midst of a two-game skid, the Kutztown University baseball team will take on the Millersville University Marauders in a four-game Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) series at KU’s North Campus Field and MU’s Cooper Park, beginning at 1 p.m. on March 30-31, respectively.

The Golden Bears (6-6, 0-2 PSAC) had been riding high after winning 4-of-5 on their spring break trip to North Carolina and then dismantling the University of the Sciences in their home opener, 20-3. KU was scheduled for a four-game series with Bloomsburg last weekend to open conference play, but snow adjusted that schedule significantly. Due to the inclement weather, Kutztown had to reschedule its home doubleheader, scheduled for March 23, with the Huskies for a later date and was only able to play two games on the weekend, at Bloomsburg on Sunday, March 25.

Headed into Sunday’s matchup, the Huskies had been a thorn in Kutztown’s side already this season,
