Muckdogs rained out; no make up game planned

posted by Howard B. Owens in Batavia Muckdogs.

Vindy.com reports that last nights game between Batavia and  Mahoning Valley was rained out.  No make up game is scheduled, the site reports.

That seems surprising given how tight the race is between the Muckdogs and Jamestown.  If the season ends with a tie or only half game separating the two teams, wouldn't this be an important game to get in the books?

Jamestown beat State College last night and sit atop the Pinckney Division standings by a game in a half at 41-24, while the Muckdogs are 39-25.

Batavia has the third best record in the league and a comfortable three game lead over Brooklyn in the wild card race.

The Muckdogs are at Williamsport tonight and tomorrow, and will match up with Jamestown on Saturday. The next home game is Sunday at 1:05 p.m. against Jamestown.

To answer the question re:making up last nights rainout. It is important but alas:no time available to play.Season ends 9/6 and playoffs start 9/8 (9/7 travel day) Such is minor league baseball. Go to Williamsport Crosscutters website for tonights radio broadcast.

I hope this doesn't hurt our position in the playoff standings. It would be just like some people in the NYPL to try to screw Batavia.

Easy Patrick,my friend.This process is based on win/loss percentages and who knows,we might benefit. Let's hope the weather clears up in Williamsport today.

Maybe the Muckdogs can help this poor family of ten foster children that just lost thier entire home this Saturday..... Have players and/or employees do collections for them. This act of compassion would be the icing on the cake of a fine season indeed. Just a thought.

That's a great idea, Patrick. What do we need to do to make it happen?

Just spoke with Howard and he liked it as well. This is a phenominal couple and I think if you appeal to the Muckdogs Management and get people at the game to help collect it would be wonderful. I'll throw in the first donation...just let me know.
