For the third time this weekend, #FAU and #Delaware are in a weather delay.

FAU failed to score in the second with runners on the corners, but padded their lead with an RBI single an inning later.
Despite some opening woes in the first, Corey Ireson has really settled into this contest.

Ireson gets his first win of the campaign in 4 IP.
Parker and Summerall split as my offensive player of the game. Parker went 3-3 on the day, including a solo shot. Summerall went 1-1, with the lone hit coming from a huge two-run homer, plus two walks.
