Grays lose to Redbirds, weather wreaks havoc with schedule
July 19, 2012 – The DC Grays completed a previously-suspended game with the Baltimore Redbirds, losing 6-2 at Calvert Hall outside Baltimore (click here for stats and the boxscore). The regularly-scheduled game that was to follow the completion of the suspended game was itself rained out, however, further exacerbating weather-related issues that have made a mess of the Grays’ late-season schedule.
The Grays’ game on Wednesday night against the Vienna River Dogs was postponed due to rain and lightning, and now the team embarks on an aggressive schedule to complete its 42-game regular season schedule. The Grays play the Express in Rockville tonight, and will then play the Herndon Braves in Herndon on Saturday night. The Braves and Grays will complete the game that was suspended due to rain last Sunday with the score tied 2-2, and then will play a regularly scheduled game immediately following the completion of the suspended game.
On Sunday, the Grays will host the Silver Spring-Tacoma Thunderbolts at Hoy Field. Before that game, the two teams will complete a game from July 7–a game that was suspended with the Grays leading 15-9 in the tenth inning.
On Monday the Grays will host the Big Train at Hoy Field, and on Tuesday the Grays will play two games at Alexandria’s Frank Mann Field. The first game will be against the Southern Maryland Nationals, which is a make-up of a rained out game from July 14, and the second game will be a regularly-scheduled game against the hometown Alexandria Aces.
More information on weather-related changes will be made available as soon as possible.
