As expected, Fridayâ€™s high school baseball playoff schedule was pushed back a day due to heavy rain. Hereâ€™s whatâ€™s on tap for Saturday:
Division I, Region 2: Lincoln at North Kingstown, 4 p.m.
Division I, Region 3: St. Raphael at La Salle, 3 p.m.
Division II, Region 2: Ponaganset at Tolman, 7:30 p.m.
Fridayâ€™s scheduled International League game between the host Pawtucket Red Sox and the Charlotte Knights at McCoy Stadium has been cancelled due to rain. The game will not be made-up as tonight was the last scheduled meeting between the teams this season.
Tonightâ€™s Bat Night promotion has been rescheduled for Sunday, June 30 when the PawSox play Scranton/Wilkes-Barre at 1:05 pm at McCoy.
Fans holding box seat tickets or general admission tickets (without a specific rainout date printed on them) can trade those in for Bat Day on June 30 or any remaining regular-season game at McCoy.
As a result of Fridayâ€™s rainout, pitching prospect Brandon Workman will now make his Triple-A debut on Sunday in Syracuse. The rest of the PawSoxâ€™ rotation for the Chiefs series includes Rubby De La Rosa on Saturday, Alfredo Aceves on Monday and Steven Wright on Tuesday.
