Well, if you haven’t seen Tim Pahuta’s twitpic of Metro Bank Park (above) by now… According to CBSSPorts.com’s C. Trent Rosecrans, Eastern League officials will meet tomorrow to determine if MBP will be playable. If not, Rosencrans reports that the rest of the series will be played in Richmond with a doubleheader on Saturday followed by games on Sunday and Monday (if necessary).
Meanwhile, Game Two of the Carolina League’s Divisional Series was postponed to tonight. You have to wonder if the series might just stay at Harry Grove in Frederick if officials decide that the Pfitz is unplayable tomorrow. And that’s presuming that a game gets played tonight in Frederick. There is, after all, more rain in the forecast.
Finally, the Doubledays won 3-2 to force a deciding game in Auburn tonight against the Vermont Lake Monsters. Wilfri Pena made good on his shot at redemption, hitting a solo home run in the 7th, just a half-inning after giving up two passed balls that enabled Vermont to tie the score at 2-2. Pena doubled earlier as part of his 2-for-3 night while Billy Burns drove in the first two runs with a double in the bottom of the 2nd. Manny Rivera got the win in relief of Taylor Hill, who struck out eight and allowed just one hit over the first five innings. Aaron Barrett weathered a hit and a walk in the 9th but got the three outs he needed for the save.
