Loons, Hot Rods Suspended

Pro Baseball

It was unclear at the time of first pitch on Wednesday night when looming storms would make their way to Bowling Green Ballpark. Before the start of the sixth inning, it had been made clear that those storms were not going to allow us to play a full nine innings. Instead, a 2-2 tied ballgame will have to wait to be finished on Thursday between the Great Lakes Loons and Bowling Green Hot Rods.

Bowling Green starter Caleb Sampen, who walked 11 and allowed nine earned runs in his first two starts against the Loons this year, came out dealing with three perfect innings to start the night. Eventually, Great Lakes tagged him for two runs in the fourth inning on a Luke Heyer sac-fly and a James Outman RBI-single.

Great Lakes starter John Rooney came in with a 21 2/3 inning scoreless innings streak – the longest for any Loon this year. That streak ended in the third inning on a Ford Proctor solo-HR. Bowling Green tied the game in the fifth on a Proctor sac-fly.

With game two of this four-game series officially suspended, it will be picked back up at 6:05 p.m. EDT on Thursday. Game three will be played after the conclusion of game two.
