Captains and Hot Rods suspended by rain

By Lake County Captains | April 19, 2017 8:16 PM ET

(Eastlake, OH) - Wednesday's game between the Lake County Captains (7-5) and the Bowling Green Hot Rods (6-6) was suspended due to rain in the fifth inning. Rain halted play with Bowling Green on top, 2-0.

The teams will resume play on Sunday, June 11 at 1:30 PM. When the game continues, the Hot Rods will be at the plate with two outs and nobody on base. That game will be nine innings and will be followed by a seven-inning game between Lake County and Bowling Green 30 minutes after the conclusion of game one. 

Before the rain interrupted the ballgame, Bowling Green starter J.D. Busfield was perfect against Lake County's hitters. Busfield set down all 12 men he faced, including a pair of strikeouts. The Hot Rods' offense supported Busfield with two runs in the first on three doubles. Jesus Sanchez hit a one-out double, followed by back-to-back RBI doubles by Mike Brosseau and Nathaniel Lowe.

The Captains won the first two games against Bowling Green and are riding a four-game winning streak. They will hit the road for seven games, beginning on Thursday. Lake County will face the West Michigan Whitecaps for a four-game series and they will head to Midland, MI afterwards to take on the Great Lakes Loons for three games. Lake County returns home to Classic Park on Thursday, April 27 to face West Michigan again.
