Hawks Rained out in Spokane

???????????????????????????????SPOKANE, Wash. – Tonight’s Northwest League game between the Boise Hawks and the Spokane Indians has been postponed due to rain.

The two teams will make the contest up as part of a Saturday doubleheader, with the first pitch of Game 1 scheduled for 6:35 p.m. (MDT)

Rain has fallen steadily in the Spokane Valley for the past 36 hours – and is not expected to let up until Friday morning.  Avista Stadium is the lone NWL stadium with a natural surface that does not have an tarp – and despite outstanding drainage, the infield surface was unplayable.

It marks the first time since the 2007 season that the Hawks have had a game rained out – with Boise having to play doubleheaders that season in both Yakima and Everett.  Over the past four years, the Hawks have had two games shortened due to rain (2011 in Vancouver, 2012 in Yakima), while the club forfeited a game in August of 2010 due to playing conditions in Everett.

The two teams, weather permitting, will play their regularly scheduled single-game tomorrow night at 7:35 p.m. (MDT)
