Continued rain throughout all of Sunday in the Frederick area has forced the Fayetteville Woodpeckers and Frederick Keys to cancel their series finale on Sunday. As the two teams will not meet again until the second half of 2019, the game will not be made up. Another miscellaneous first in Woodpeckers history, it is the first canceled game for the franchise.
The wash out follows a dubious day at Nymeo field for Fayetteville, as the Woodpeckers were walked off in both games of Saturday's doubleheader. While Fayetteville had a lead in both games, the Keys were able to rally late in both contests on the cold evening for their first wins against the Woodpeckers this season.
Fayetteville will return to Segra Stadium hoping to cure the ailments of their worst stretch this season, as the Woodpeckers sit four games under .500, and 9 ½ games out of first place entering Sunday. The Salem Red Sox and Carolina Mudcats will visit Fayetteville for the next seven days, starting with the series opener against Salem at 7:00PM on Monday, when Chad Donato will climb the hill for the Woodpeckers.
