The Valparaiso University baseball team took an early 3-0 lead over Evansville on Saturday at Braun Stadium in Evansville, Ind., but Mother Nature took away a chance for a Beacons series win as the contest went on a lightning delay in the second inning. After an hour of waiting, the weather remained unplayable and the game was canceled and declared a no contest.
