PRINCETON (4/19/11) -- The Princeton baseball team's Tuesday night game against St. John's has been rained out. Princeton will return to action on Thursday afternoon when it visits Monmouth. Princeton won three of four over the weekend and visits Queens on Tuesday looking for its fourth straight win overall and also its fourth straight against non-league opponents.

Princeton took three of four games over the weekend at Penn. After falling in the opening game to the Quakers, Princeton reeled off three-straight wins to take a two-game lead in the Gehrig Division standings with eight league games remaining over the next two weekends. Princeton and Penn had entered the weekend tied atop the standings with identical records.

Princeton was outscored and outhit over the four games but pulled out the three victories. Princeton trailed in all three wins at Penn and scored the game-winning runs in its last at-bat in two of the three wins. Ryan Albert hit .429 to lead Princeton in three of the games, while John Mishu (.333), Matt Bowman (.308) and Jonathan York (.308) all hit better than .300.

Princeton visits Monmouth on Thursday in a game rescheduled from last week due to rain. The teams have played 15 times since the 2000 season with the Hawks holding an 11-4 record in the span, including wins in the last eight meetings. Princeton last topped the Hawks in the 2004 season at home by a 12-5 score. Last season Monmouth defeated Princeton 24-7 at Clarke Field.

Monmouth is currently 20-13 overall and 15-5 atop the Northeast Conference standings. The Hawks swept four games from Wagner last weekend and have now won three straight weekend series. The only common opponents between Princeton and Monmouth are VCU and Rutgers. Monmouth took two of three from VCU and defeated Rutgers 3-2. Princeton split two games at VCU and also defeated Rutgers. Monmouth hosts St. Peter's on Wednesday.

The game with St. John's will not be made up.
