The weather was the true winner of Saturday night’s game between the Winnipeg Goldeyes and Sioux Fall Canaries.

After numerous rain delays and intermissions for field maintenance, the game was postponed and will be completed Sunday at 1:30 p.m. It will be followed by the regularly scheduled game, which was shortened to seven innings.

Saturday’s game was originally scheduled to start at 6 p.m, but was delayed by just over an hour and a half. A steady rain kept the game at a slow pace, and umpires officially called for the suspension in the bottom of the fourth with one out.

At the time of the suspension, the Goldeyes were trailing 1-0. Canaries right fielder Nick Van Stratten hit an RBI single to bring in the only run of the game. The Canaries have five hits through four complete innings and the Goldeyes have one hit in three and one third innings.

Ticket holders will be able to exchange their ticket for any remaining regular-season game, including the completion of Saturday night’s game and Sunday’s regularly scheduled game.
