Some times the weather is just too much. Trying to avoid a four-game sweep against Brooklyn (23-48), the Spinners (31-39) came into their final road game of the season looking fora a victory.

Left-hander Yorvin Pantoja got the start for Lowell and got out of a bases loaded jam in the first inning. Over three innings of work, Pantoja gave up four hits, three walks but no runs.

Taylor Ahearn came in to relieve Pantoja in the third inning and surrendered to go-ahead run in his only inning of work.

Following the top of the fifth inning, the game was sent into a rain delay but play would not resume with the game being called early.

With their road schedule completed, the Spinners close out the season with a five-game home stand starting Sunday at 5:35 p.m. as Lowell takes on the Hudson Valley Renegades.
