IronPigs-Bisons to Play Doubleheader WednesdayMay 5, 2009 - International League (IL) Lehigh Valley IronPigs
Due to the postponement, fans holding tickets to Tuesday's doubleheader can exchange each ticket for a ticket of equal or lesser value to any remaining 2009 home game. All ticket exchanges must be made in-person at the Coca-Cola Park Ticket Office (no phone or internet exchanges). Ticket exchanges are subject to availability.
Wednesday's doubleheader begins at 5:35 p.m. and all gates open at 4:30 p.m. The first 3,500 fans attending Wednesday's doubleheader will receive "Golf Ball" Logo Baseballs presented by Allentown Municipal Golf Course. Japan Night, which was originally scheduled for Monday but postponed due to rain, has also been rescheduled for Wednesday.
In the opening game of the twin bill on Tuesday, RHP Justin Lehr tossed his first career shutout, allowing just three hits en route to an IronPigs 3-0 victory. The victory snapped the IronPigs mini two-game losing streak and improved the team to 11-13 on the year. Buffalo fell to a league-worst 4-19 in defeat.
The pitching probables for the doubleheader are as follows:
Game 1: RHP Kyle Kendrick (2-1, 2.77) vs. RHP Tim Redding (0-0, 0.00) for Buffalo
Game 2: RHP Carlos Carrasco (0-2, 4.50) vs. RHP Kyle Snyder (0-2, 5.06) for Buffalo
