The Wolf Pack baseball team's series at Washington State has been moved to Peccole Park.

The series was originally slated for Pullman, Wash., but snow is in the forecast there, prompting the move. Nevada was originally scheduled to host Washington State next season, so the series have simply been flipped, with the Wolf Pack traveling to Pullman in 2020. Nevada's 2019 home opener was scheduled for March 15 against New Mexico, but the team will get to host a game earlier than that.

Nevada is off to its best starting since 2015, posting a 6-1 record, including a three-game sweep of winless Long Beach State last weekend. Washington State (2-6) picked up its first two victories on the season last weekend, splitting its four-game series at Santa Clara.

Nevada and Washington State will play single games Thursday, Friday and Saturday, with each scheduled for a 1 p.m. first pitch. Single-game tickets for this weekend will be available, with season-ticket holders able to attend all three games for free. Season-ticket holders must go to the ticketing office at Don Weir Field at Peccole Park on gameday to be allowed free entry.

A live stream of the games on the Mountain West Network will be available as well as a radio broadcast on 94.1 FM/1450 AM on Thursday and Friday. There will be no live stream for Saturday’s contest, but an internet-only radio broadcast will be available.
