Lynchburg, VA-The 2014 regular season series finale between the visiting Potomac Nationals (70-53, 32-22) and the hosting Lynchburg Hillcats (62-66, 28-30) was cancelled on Thursday night due to wet grounds following a swift-moving thunderstorm that entered the Lynchburg area just after the scheduled start time of 6:05pm.

The contest is cancelled and will not be made up because Potomac and Lynchburg do not meet again in the Carolina League's 2014 regular campaign.

The Nationals return home to Pfitzner Stadium to begin the final homestand of the 2014 regular season. The P-Nats will host their Northern Division rival, Frederick Keys (Baltimore Orioles) in a four-game set that begins tomorrow evening at 7:05pm.

Potomac's Game One starting pitcher is to be announced.

Frederick plans to throw RHP Sebastian Vader (2-4, 5.25) in the series opener.
