Sunday's rain forced the Winnipeg Goldeyes to postpone their scheduled tilt against the Lincoln Saltdogs until next month.

The Fish were slated to close out the four-game home series at Shaw Park Sunday afternoon, but rain forced a delay. The team then announced the game would be postponed.

The Goldeyes will make up the match on July 30, when they will play a double-header against Lincoln starting at 6 p.m. Both of those games will last seven innings.

Tickets for Sunday's game can be exchanged for any other regular-season game at the Shaw Park box office.

The delay came after the Goldeyes announced a pair of moves, including the addition of a new pitcher to bolster the roster: rookie southpaw Ryan Sasaki, who joined the team Sunday after the Fish claimed him from the Laredo Lemurs. The 22-year-old went 2-2 with a 4.81 ERA in six starts with Laredo this season. He was a 2009 13th-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Phillies.

At the same time, the Goldeyes placed outfielder Ryan Scoma on the disabled list. Scoma, a talented left-side batter who had 17 RBI in 21 games with the Goldeyes this year, has been out with an injury since June 12.
