The second straight day of perpetual rain cancelled another day of baseball at Shaw Park.

Today was supposed to see the Winnipeg Goldeyes gear up for a double-header with the St. Paul Saints after rain spoiled Saturday’s game two of a three game series.

The first game was initially pushed back to a 4 p.m. start but both games are now cancelled and the Goldeyes will have to make up for the two games sometime throughout the season. A date is yet to be determined. 

But for now the Fish get ready for a 10-game road trip beginning on Tuesday with the New Jersey Jackals.

Meanwhile, there are weather warnings on both land and water in Manitoba today.

Environment Canada has issued rainfall warnings for southeastern Manitoba including Grand Beach, Victoria Beach, Falcon Lake, West Hawk Lake, Pinawa, Bissett, Nopiming Provincial Park, and the RMs of Alexander, East St. Paul, St. Clements, Lac du Bonnet, Reynolds and Whitemouth.
