Goldeyes rained out
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.
