The game between the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs and Lancaster Barnstormers, scheduled for Thursday, July 28, was postponed due to heavy rains and wet grounds. It will be made up as part of a doubleheader, Saturday, September 17, when the Blue Crabs play the final regular season series at Clipper Magazine Stadium.
Tickets for the Thursday game will be honored at a future Barnstormers game in 2022.
Southern Maryland had jumped out to a 3-0 lead on home runs by Jack Sundberg and Alex Crosby in the top of the first inning. After a conference on the field, the tarp was pulled before the bottom of the first could get underway. High winds and heavy rains inundated the field shortly afterward. Umpires waited for one hour before calling the game with standing water still visible on the grass behind home plate and in right field.
The Barnstormers head to Staten Island for a three-game series beginning Friday night. Oscar De La Cruz (4-1) will make the start for Lancaster against lefty Anthony Rodriguez (4-4). The game will be available on the Barnstormers YouTube Channel, beginning at 6:55.
