Salem, VA---Persistent rain forced the suspension of what was game one of a doubleheader between the Potomac Nationals (26-21) and the Salem Red Sox (23-25). Rain paused the opener in the bottom of the third inning, with a runner on first base, and one out, with no score.
The teams will now play two games on Thursday. The suspended game will go the full seven innings, while the back half of the quasi-twin bill is a scheduled seven-inning matchup.
The suspended game will resume at 5:00pm.
The Potomac broadcast will get underway at 4:45 with the "P-Nats Lead-Off Show." The broadcast can be heard on potomacnationals.com or via the TuneIn Radio App.
