Wednesday night’s game between the Albuquerque Isotopes (50-47) and the Oklahoma City RedHawks (42-55) has been postponed due to a heavy rain storm that descended on Isotopes Park about a half hour before the contest was slated to begin. The ‘Topes and ‘Hawks will play two seven-inning contests Thursday afternoon starting at 4:35 p.m. MT, with gates opening at 3:30 p.m. MT. At the end of the first game, there will be a period of 30 minutes before the start of the second game.
Any ticket from Wednesday’s game may be exchanged for a ticket of equal or lesser value, subject to seating availability, to any remaining regular season home game under the Isotopes’ Rain Check Policy rules. Exchanges are accepted exclusively at the Isotopes Park box office.
In the first contest, left-hander Randy Keisler (5-4, 3.76) will make the start for the Isotopes against Oklahoma City right-hander Brad Hennessey (0-2, 6.59), while in the night-cap, the ‘Topes will start All-Star lefty Dana Eveland (9-5, 3.62)against RedHawks lefty Xavier Cedeno (0-0, No ERA), making his first Triple-A start.
