The New Mexico Lobos baseball team began the 2020 season with a 14-4 record, but this campaign has been cut short.
New Mexico was on a six-game winning streak, which including sweeping Hofstra in a three-game series in Albuquerque, and Incarnate Word in a two-game series in San Antonio, Texas last week. The Lobos were driving less than two hours to Austin for a weekend series against the University of Texas, but due to the Mountain West suspension of all winter and spring games, the team had to return to Albuquerque.
The 14-4 start was a promising one for a team that has had losing records in the last two seasons (2018: 20–33–1, 2019: 23–28-1). Last year, the Lobos went 11-7 in their first 18 games.
