West Michigan at Lansing Postponed
LANSING, Mich. - Wednesday night's scheduled game at Cooley Law School Stadium between the Lansing Lugnuts (4-6) and West Michigan Whitecaps (5-6) has been postponed due to rain. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader beginning at 6:05 p.m. on Thursday night.
Fans possessing tickets to Wednesday's game may exchange those tickets in person at the stadium box office for tickets of equal or lesser value to a Lugnuts home game this season.
The postponement marks the fourth game this season that the Lugnuts have been forced to reschedule due to weather, including the Crosstown Showdown, presented by Auto-Owners Insurance, moved from April 11th to May 1st.
Thursday is also a Labatt Blue Light Thirsty Thursday, featuring $1 beer, as well as the first of two Pub Crawls: Beginning at 7:00 p.m., a new $3 drink special will be announced every half-hour.
In Game 1 of the doubleheader, Lansing right-hander Taylor Cole (1-1, 5.19) will face West Michigan right-hander Montreal Robertson (1-0, 1.64). The nightcap, starting 30 minutes after the completion of the first game, will see Lugnuts lefty Alonzo Gonzalez (1-0, 1.64) oppose Whitecaps right-hander Hudson Randall (0-2, 1.08).
Following Thursday's games, the Lugnuts will travel to Fort Wayne to start a three game weekend series against the TinCaps.
