WASHINGTON - The George Washington baseball team will head south to Cary, N.C., to play a three-game series against Army at the USA Baseball National Training Complex.

The series, originally scheduled to be played in Petersburg, Va., at the Petersburg Sports Complex, has been relocated due to unplayable field conditions. Both Saturday's doubleheader and Sunday's single game are scheduled to begin at 12 p.m.

GW (0-3) opened the 2012 season at Stetson last weekend and was swept in three games despite averaging nearly six runs per game. Senior Matthew Murakami collected five hits and drove in four runs while hitting .385 for the weekend to lead the Colonials' offense.

Army (1-2) opened its 2012 campaign by winning one game out of three at High Point last weekend. The Black Knights used a strong pitching effort to clinch their only win of the series as freshman Alex Robinett allowed just three hits through five scoreless innings with two strikeouts.

The first game of the doubleheader on Saturday will be a full nine innings followed by a seven-inning contest.

Saturday Gm. 1: GW: LHP Brian Derner vs. Army: Logan Lee
