Following up on yesterday's summary (below) of games for the first part of the weekend (Friday and early Saturday), I wanted to provide results for the rest of the weekend. If one were going to use a song to describe some of the Saturday and Sunday developments, it would be "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head."

The second game of the UCLA-Washington series in Seattle experienced a stoppage due to weather. Quoting from the UCLA athletic website's article:

There was no score through two full innings before rain, hail and wind gusts of up to 33 mph forced a rain delay and the eventual suspension of the game.

Michigan, having played two games at Iowa, moved on to Wisconsin for a Sunday double-header, but it too was rained out.

(Those of you who also follow Major League Baseball may have heard about the Blue Jays and White Sox trying to get in as much of their game as possible in rain-soaked Chicago.)

In games that were completed...

Though experiencing the midwestern rainstorm themselves to some degree, Michigan State and Iowa split a Sunday double-header on the Hawkeyes' home field.

Alabama, which came into this weekend unbeaten in SEC play, ended up losing two of three to LSU.

Arizona shut out intrastate rival ASU to gain a split of their series.

Stanford took two of three from Cal.

Texas Tech got swept at Kansas, each loss coming by a single run.
