Rams Host Stags in Single Game Wednesday

KINGSTON, R.I. – Rhode Island will play its final non-conference game of the season when it hosts Fairfield Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.

Originally scheduled as a doubleheader for Tuesday, the game was changed to a single game Wednesday due to rain on Tuesday. Fairfield is coming to Kingston for the game before turning around and heading to Manhattan for a doubleheader on Thursday.

Rhode Island, which looking to snap a five-game skid, will head to St. Bonaventure for a three-game Atlantic 10 series this weekend.

Series History
vs. Fairfield – 8-16
This is the first meeting between the schools since April 17, 2014 when the sides split a doubleheader. Rhode Island won the first game, 4-3, when then-freshman Marylynn Muldowney scored the game-winning run in the top of the eighth inning. The last four games in the series have been one-run contests, with each team winning twice.

NOTES
Junior Jenna Cubello recorded the 200th assist of her career Sunday against Fordham, making her just the seventh Rhody player to reach the plateau… Senior Lauren Klepchick became the 19th player in program history to reach 20 career doubles during Sunday's game against Fordham… The next game Klepchick plays will be the 150th of her career… Sophomore Kylie Shivery has 34 runs batted in this season. She is 10 shy of Rhode Island's single-season record (44 by Kellie Cookus in 1997) and she needs four more to tie Melissa Wilson (2010) and Chris Dinoto (1982) for the second most in program history.
