Mother Nature Postpones Game 2 in Sarasota

A contingent of approximately 75 Threshers staffers and fans made their way to Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota last night, and unfortunately the only action we saw on the field was the tarp crew. A heavy rain storm moved through Sarasota right near game time and was still going strong as the Reds made the decision around 8:15pm to postpone Game 2 until today (Thursday). It is scheduled for 7:00pm and will be a nine-inning game.

This could push the FSL Playoff Schedule back a day depending on the outcome tonight. The earliest that the Threshers could now host a game (in Round 2) would be Monday, September 10.

Updated 1:55pm: Andrew Carpenter is now the scheduled starter for Game 2 tonight.
