Wilmington, DE - Thursday night's contest between the Wilmington Blue Rocks and the Potomac Nationals has been postponed due to rain. It is the ninth rainout of the season for the Blue Rocks.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader when the P-Nats return to town August 26-29. The specific date will be announced at a later time. Both contests in the doubleheader will be seven innings in length.

Wilmington now hits the road for a six-game road trip. The Blue Rocks return to action Friday night in Winston-Salem for the opener of a three-game set against the Dash.
