'Caps, Cubs Canceled
COMSTOCK PARK, MI - Saturday's scheduled game between the South Bend Cubs and the West Michigan Whitecaps at Fifth Third Ballpark has been canceled due to inclement weather and wet grounds.
Saturday's game will not be made up, as its result does not directly impact the Midwest League Eastern Division playoff race. The two teams will play a nine-inning contest as-scheduled on Sunday beginning at 2:00 pm.
The rainout marks the sixth time the Whitecaps have had a game washed out during the 2019 campaign, and the third straight Saturday the "Caps have been rained out dating back to last week's postponement at Bowling Green, and the week prior at Lake County. The game, whose stats will not count, was halted in the top of the fourth inning with the Cubs leading West Michigan by a score of 5-0.
The Whitecaps conclude the first half of the 2019 season with a Sunday matinee against the South Bend Cubs with the final game of this two-game series at 2:00 pm from Fifth Third Ballpark. Whitecaps pitcher Chance Kirby gets the start against Cubs southpaw Peyton Remy. Broadcast coverage with Dan Hasty and Mike Coleman starts on the Whitecaps Baseball Network at 1:50 pm. Tickets are available for any Whitecaps 2019 home contest by calling the Whitecaps front office at 616-784-4131 or by visiting www.whitecapsbaseball.com.
