RailRiders Rained Out Sunday; No Reschedule

MOOSIC, PA. – Persistent rain at  PNC Field forced the SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/ New York Yankees) to cancel their series finale with the Pawtucket Red Sox on Sunday. The two teams do not meet again in the 2016 regular season and it will not be made up.

The RailRiders (80-48) entered Sunday with a magic number of seven to clinch a postseason berth. Rain also washed out the Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ final tilt in Syracuse, keeping SWB’s division lead in the International League North at four games.

SWB begins a two-game set against the second-place IronPigs at 7:05 Monday night. Left-hander Richard Bleier (2-2, 2.76) will start for the RailRiders. The RailRiders return home on Friday, August 26 to take on the Rochester Red Wings.

The team will change their name for one night only to the “Pierogies” in celebration of the tasty little dumplings. For tickets or more information, please call 570-969-BALL (2255) or visit swbrailriders.com.
