Friday Night's Game Postponed; Doubleheader Set for Saturday

By Tri-City Dust Devils | August 5, 2017 2:17 AM ET

 

The Tri-City Dust Devils and Boise Hawks could not complete their game on Friday night at Gesa Stadium due to visibility issues as a result of wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. The game was postponed with the Dust Devils trailing Boise 6-4 with no outs in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Tri-City starter Henry Henry struggled to begin the game. Henry allowed six runs in his four innings of work. The Dust Devils entered the bottom of the fourth inning trailing 6-0. Chris Mattison stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and hit the team's first grand slam of the season. The game was delayed and ultimately suspended right after Mattison's grand slam.

The suspended game will resume beginning at 5 p.m. on Saturday at Gesa Stadium. The suspended game will start in the bottom of the fourth inning and the full nine innings will be played. After a brief break after the end of the first game, the second game will begin and will be a seven-inning contest.

Any ticket from Friday's game is good for any game the rest of the year, based on availability. Fans will need to exchange the Friday ticket for a ticket to a game of their choice. A ticket for Saturday's game will be good for both games of the doubleheader on Saturday

There will be a postgame fireworks show on Saturday. Great seats are available by calling the Dust Devils' front office at (509) 544-8789 or by going to www.dustdevilsbaseball.com to purchase tickets.
