Baysox and SeaWolves Washed Out

| June 6, 2010 | 0 Comments

The Bowie Baysox and Erie SeaWolves made it through two and a half innings of their series finale, as lightning flashed and thunder rumbled all around Prince George’s stadium, before the skies opened up with a torrential downpour that forced the game to be suspended.

The game will be resumed as part of a doubleheader when the SeaWolves return on Monday, June 28.  Play will resume at the beginning of the bottom of the third inning with Danny Figueroa leading off and the Baysox leading 1-0.  The start time of the game and the pitchers are yet to be determined.  It will be played through nine innings, and the second game will be seven innings long in accordance with Minor League Baseball rules.

The rain was most unfortunate for starting pitcher Steve Johnson, who was perfect through the first three innings with four strikeouts.  Johnson is just four away from 500 strikeouts in his minor league career.

The Baysox grabbed their 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning with a two-out rally.  First baseman Brandon Waring and third baseman Tyler Henson drew walks before outfielder Jonathan Tucker hit a single to right field that plated Waring from second base.

Fans with tickets dated for June 6 can redeem those tickets at the Baysox box office for a ticket of equal value for a later Baysox game of their choice.
