Today's (Tuesday's) scheduled International League game between the host Pawtucket Red Sox and the Syracuse Chiefs at McCoy Stadium has been postponed due to inclement weather and a forecast for heavy rain throughout the afternoon. The game will be made-up as part of a doubleheader during Syracuse's next trip to McCoy on June 21st at 5:35 pm.
Fans holding box seat tickets or general admission tickets (without a specific rainout date printed on them) for Tuesday can trade those in for any remaining regular-season game at McCoy.
This is the second home rainout this season for the PawSox - the other came on Opening Night, April 7 vs. Buffalo. Pawtucket had just one home rainout all of last season (April 20, 2015 vs. Buffalo).
The 1st-place PawSox will enjoy their first scheduled off-day of the season tomorrow (Wednesday) before resuming this home and home series with a 4-game set in Syracuse continuing on Thursday night at 7:05 pm. The Sox will be on the road for a 7-game trip through May 4 (four in Syracuse and three more in Lehigh Valley) before returning to McCoy on Thursday, May 5 for a 4-game series (and homestand) vs. Rochester.
