After playing its opening 33 games on the road, Ball State softball (23-10, 5-1 MAC) will have to wait at least another three days to play its first home game of the 2018 season. 

The Cardinals' game against Northern Illinois was declared rained out after the Muncie area received multiple inches of rain starting on Monday evening.

Also getting the axe is Ball State baseball's (14-13, 3-3 MAC) home matchup against No. 11 Indiana.

The baseball game will not be made-up, however softball will play a doubleheader against Northern Illinois on April 11 in DeKalb, Illinois to make up for the wash out.

Coming into Tuesday, Ball State softball is second place in the MAC West standings, trailing Toledo by a half-game.

Ball State baseball is currently on a two-game skid after dropping the back end of its series against Central Michigan on Saturday and Sunday.
