 Northwest Arkansas Naturals

Naturals Drop Second Straight in Rain-Shortened Game Wednesday

August 9, 2023 - Texas League (TL)
Northwest Arkansas Naturals News Release

Tyson Guerrero (0-1) struck out seven in a loss as the Northwest Arkansas Naturals (17-17, 46-57) took their second-straight loss to the Wichita Wind Surge (17-18, 45-58) in a 2-1 rain-shortened game on Wednesday. The two teams will continue their series on Thursday with a 7:05 PM CT first pitch.

Guerrero went four and two-thirds innings for the Naturals on Wednesday, making his AA debut for Northwest Arkansas at Arvest Ballpark. The Southpaw allowed two runs, both in the second inning. Both runs scored on a homer off the bat of Dalton Shuffield to give the Wind Surge the lead.

In the fifth, NWA loaded the bases while the rain started to pick up. Tyler Tolbert lifted a sacrifice fly to the outfield scoring the Naturals first run, but Diego Hernandez grounded out to second, ending the inning. As soon as the players left the field the umpiring crew called for the tarp, and after a delay the game was finalized due to the rain with the Naturals taking the loss, 2-1.

Due to the rain and stormy conditions around Northwest Arkansas, the Naturals have announced a modified ticket exchange policy for all fans with tickets from Wednesday, August 9th.

Even though the game against Wichita was played and considered official after five innings, all tickets from Wednesday, August 9th - even tickets that were used to attend the game - are eligible to be exchanged in-person for a ticket of equal value to any game home game during the month of August.

Fans are required to exchange their tickets in-person at the Arvest Ballpark Box Office during normal operating hours. The Box Office opens at noon on gamedays and stays open throughout the game while it is open on non-gamedays from 12 p.m. until 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and closed on weekends.
