Augusta, GA-Tonight's scheduled game between the visiting Hagerstown Suns and the Augusta Greenjackets was postponed due to a violent thunderstorm. Winds were so heavy that a section of the outfield wall in center field at Lake Olmstead Stadium was knocked down.
Heavy rainfall covered the diamond at Lake Olmstead and Greenjackets officials announced that game two of the four game road series would be made up as part of a doubleheader on Thursday, July 14th. A pair of seven-inning contests will begin at 6:05pm.
Wall-to-wall radio broadcast coverage will begin with a 5:50pm Break Away 2 Sports Lounge Pre-game Show on WJEJ AM 1240. The pitching matchup will feature RHP A.J. Cole facing LHP Mike Kickham.
