Syracuse vs. Toledo – PPD
Rain postponed yesterday afternoon’s game and will push up the start time for today’s from the evening to midday to beat the rain forecast for tonight. The Mud Hens do not come to town again until August, which is part of the impetus to get the games in. Roster moves: Ross up, Ross in; Joe recalled to DC, Greg reassigned from Harrisburg.
Harrisburg vs. Hartford – PPD
Rain also washed out the game last night in Hartford. It will be made up on a future Harrisburg visit. Tonight’s game is just one at the regularly scheduled time.
