Harrisburg vs. Bowie – PPD
For the second night in a row, rain washed the game(s) between Harrisburg and Bowie. They’ll try make up one today and the other in June.
Roster moves: RHP Danny Dopico placed on the development list.
Wilmington vs. Bowling Green –PPD/CNCLD
Likewise, the Blue Rocks and Hot Rods were rained out again. However, with this being the sole series between the two teams, they will cancel the final game and only play two this afternoon (weather permitting, natch).
Fredericksburg vs. Lynchburg – PPD
And, just like Friday night, the ‘Burgs were also rained out. They’ll make up one with a doubleheader this afternoon, and presumably, make up the other game next month when the Hillcats visit from June 7-12.
