Rain postpones RiverDogs game

The Charleston RiverDogs and the Greenville Drive were rained out Wednesday night at Riley Park.

Greenville was leading 1-0 with two outs in the top of the third inning when the rains came. The Drive scored on an RBI double by Cody Koback in the first inning.

The suspended game will resume today starting at 6 p.m. Following the conclusion of the suspended game, Charleston and Greenville will then play another seven-inning game.

Tickets for Wednesday’s game may be exchanged at the box office for tickets to any remaining RiverDogs regular season home game in 2013.

Right-hander Rafael De Paula (6-2, 2.48 ERA) is scheduled to start the second game for Charleston against right-hander Francellis Montas (1-5, 5.23).

Before the game, there was a re-enlistment ceremony on the field behind home plate for Technical Sergeant Andy Clyde of the United States Air Force that drew a round of applause from those in attendance.

RiverDogs general manager Dave Echols announced that 15 percent of all profits of Charleston RiverDogs merchandise purchased through milb.com will be donated to the Oklahoma City Red Cross, as part of Minor League Baseball’s “15 for 15” initiative to raise funds to assist those affected by the recent storms in Oklahoma. The donations will run until June 17.
