Well, at least it’s not snow, right? Friday’s doubleheader at Northeast Delta Dental Stadium between the New Hampshire Fisher Cats and Binghamton Rumble Ponies has been postponed due to rain.

Ironically, the second game of the doubleheader had been postponed a month earlier due to inclement weather conditions.

One of the games will be played on Saturday as part of a doubleheader scheduled to start at 5:35 p.m.

The other game will be rescheduled for a doubleheader on Saturday, June 24, set to begin at 6:05 p.m.

In the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader, Francisco Rios (3-2, 1.91 ERA) will start for New Hampshire against Binghamton’s P.J Conlon (2-1, 4.21 ERA).

This will be Conlon’s third start of the year so far against New Hampshire. In his two previous starts against the Fisher Cats in 2017, he’s gone 1-0 with a 10.71 ERA, accumulating a combined 11 strikeouts while allowing 14 hits and three walks.

The starters for the second game have not yet been announced. However, if both teams’ rotations remain intact, the assumed starts would be Binghamton’s Donovan Hand (0-0,5.25 ERA) and New Hampshire’s Jon Harris (1-1, 7.18 ERA)

Under Eastern League rules, each game in the doubleheaders will be truncated from nine innings to seven innings, barring the need for extra innings to break a tie.

Fans with tickets to Friday’s games can exchange them at the box office for any other Fisher Cats regular season home game in 2017, based on availability. For more information, call 603-641-2005.
