Only the Syracuse Chiefs were in action on Tuesday night as there was rain everywhere else.
Compiled from team press releases
SYRACUSE (AAA International League): The Syracuse Chiefs dropped the opening game of a six-game road trip to the Durham Bulls, 4-3, Tuesday night at Durham Bulls Athletic Park. Durham answered an early Matt Skole two-run home run with a four-run second, and a sixth-inning rally fell one run short for the Chiefs. The loss snapped Syracuse’s six-game win streak – its longest since last May.
Syracuse (8-8) got on the board in the top of the second against Brent Honeywell. After Brandon Snyder reached on an error by Bulls shortstop Willy Adames, Skole launched his third home run of the season. He smashed a ball over the right-center-field fence to give the Chiefs a 2-0 lead. It marked the seventh time in the last eight games that the Chiefs scored first.
HARRISBURG (AA Eastern): The Senators game scheduled for tonight against Reading has been postponed due to weather. The game tonight will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Tuesday, June 27 beginning at 6:00 p.m. Anyone holding tickets for the game Tuesday night can exchange them for any remaining regular season game this season, in the same ticket category, based upon availability.
The doubleheader will consist of two seven-inning games with a 30-minute break between games.
The next Senators home game is Wednesday night against Reading beginning at 6:30 p.m. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. It’s a Wet Nose Wednesday and a Winning Wednesday.
POTOMAC (High-A Carolina League): Rain throughout the day has postponed the series opener between the Potomac Nationals (9-7) and Frederick Keys (8-8). The game will be made up as a doubleheader tomorrow (Wednesday, 4/25). First pitch of game one is set for 4:30pm. Gates to Pfitzner Stadium will open at 4:00pm.
HAGERSTOWN (Low-A South Atlantic League): Continuing rain storms further delayed the series opener between the Suns and Kannapolis Intimidators on Tuesday afternoon at Municipal Stadium. The teams will now attempt a doubleheader on Wednesday morning beginning at 10:35 a.m. The second game will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of the opener. Both games are scheduled for seven innings each.
With Tuesday’s postponement, the third game of the Suns and Intimidators series will now shift to Kannapolis, North Carolina during a doubleheader on June 14.
Mother Nature has not been kind to the Suns in 2017, postponing five games due to rain in the first 13 home dates. The Suns postponed only four home games during the entire 2016 season. On Wednesday, the Suns will play their fourth home doubleheader this season.
Fans holding tickets for the Monday and Tuesday games of this series may exchange those tickets at the Municipal Stadium box office for any other Suns regular season home game in 2017.
