Zebulon, NC---The second game of the four-game series between the Potomac Nationals (32-35) and Carolina Mudcats (34-31) has been suspended due to rain. The game got underway, but the teams made it just two batters before the skies opened up and steady rain stayed overhead for the better part of an hour. The game is scoreless with the bases empty and two outs in the top of the first inning.

The teams will resume Friday night's matchup on Saturday and finish the nine innings. Approximately 30 minutes after that game wraps up, the two squads will play a seven-inning affair at Five County Stadium, the third game of the series. 

First pitch from Zebulon, NC is set for 4:00pm Friday night. The Potomac broadcast will get underway at 4:00pm with the "P-Nats Leadoff Show." The broadcast can be heard on or via the TuneIn Radio App.
