Raptors rained out; doubleheader Thursday

Wednesday , August 13, 2014 - 11:25 PM

MISSOULA, Mont. – Wednesday’s baseball game between the Ogden Raptors and Missoula Osprey was postponed due to unplayable field conditions following a rainstorm.

Rain ceased around 6 p.m., but the field was not protected as Missoula does not have a tarp to cover the entirety of the infield, only two small tarps to cover the pitcher’s mound and home plate area. Despite field crews working to get the field ready, umpires officially called for postponement at 8:38 p.m. after inspecting the field.

The game will be made up Thursday at 5 p.m. when it will be played as game one of two seven-inning contests.

In game one, Ogden left-hander Victor Gonzalez (2-2, 6.32 ERA) will start against fellow left-hander Cody Reed, who makes his first appearance for the Osprey after his recent call up from the Arizona League.
