Dayton Dragons game washed out vs. Lake County

Sunday’s game between the Dayton Dragons (3-7) and the Lake County Captains (7-3) was suspended in the top of the second inning after a two-and-and-half hour delay on the final day of a three-game series.

The game will be resumed the next time the Captains visit Dayton for a four-game series May 20-23. The game will be completed as a nine-inning game followed by a seven-inning game on a day to be determined. The game is scoreless with the Captains batting and runners on first and second with one out.

Rain began falling lightly in the top of the second inning, but it quickly turned into a downpour to force a delay at 2:32 p.m. The rain created puddles behind home plate in in the outfield just beyond the infield tarp. A little over an hour after the delay began and the puddles drained, the grounds crew began rolling up the tarp.

Rain was not falling when the umpires suspended the game at 5:02, but weather radar indicated another storm was on the way. Rain came again 16 minutes later.

Jared Solomon started for the Dragons. He walked two with two out in the first inning but ended the inning with a strikeout. He hit the leadoff batter in the second and walked the next one before getting a strikeout.
