Bucks Game At Rochester Suspended By Rain

Weather prevented the Waterloo Bucks and Rochester Honkers from completing their Northwoods League game in southeast Minnesota Saturday night (June 17, 2017).

The first meeting of the season between the North Division rivals was suspended in the top of the third inning, with the Bucks trailing 2-0. The Bucks had a runner at first base with none out when play was stopped, initially due to lightning. Heavy rain eventually forced the suspension.

The original 7:05 p.m. start time was delayed 15 minutes by rain. The skies cleared enough to allow the game to start, then a second storm cell moved in.

The only scoring in the game took place in the first inning when Zach Zubia crushed a two-run home run, giving the Honkers a 2-0 advantage.

The game will be finished when the Bucks make their next to trip to Rochester’s Mayo Field on Thursday, June 29. The game will start at the point where play was stopped and be completed to nine innings, starting at 11:05 a.m. The regularly scheduled contest will follow after about a 30-minute break, but will be shortened to seven innings.

UP NEXT: The Bucks and Honkers complete their two-game, home-and-home series on Sunday (June 18) when the teams square off in Waterloo. First pitch is scheduled at 2:05 p.m. at Riverfront Stadium.
