LANSING, MI – The West Michigan Whitecaps ballgame scheduled for Tuesday against the Lansing Lugnuts has been postponed due to inclement weather at Jackson Field.
A severe thunderstorm just before the first pitch proved too much to play the originally scheduled ballgame, leading to the contest being called. Tuesday’s postponement becomes the ninth gameday to see a rainout for West Michigan and the first since another Tuesday evening matchup was washed out on August 24 at Jackson Field against the Lugnuts.
Tuesday’s game is scheduled to be made up in a Wednesday doubleheader beginning at 5:30 pm. Both games will last seven innings in duration, with a 30-minute break in-between contests. Wednesday will become the ninth doubleheader for West Michigan this season, with the ‘Caps having posted a 9-6 record in those circumstances.
The Whitecaps begin this six-game series against the Lansing Lugnuts with a doubleheader from Jackson Field on Wednesday at 5:30 pm. Lefty Jack O’Loughlin and righty Brendan White get the starts for West Michigan against the Lugnuts Reid Birlingmair and Osvaldo Berrios. Broadcast coverage with Dan Hasty starts on the Whitecaps Baseball Network at 5:15 pm. Get all the latest Whitecaps news online at www.whitecapsbaseball.com.
