The Hagerstown Suns have seen so much rain, they are coming home, traveling two-by-two. The Suns scheduled doubleheader in Kannapolis, N.C. was cancelled because of wet grounds on Sunday. It will not be made up since it was the last time the Suns and the Intimidators meet this season. The postponement comes on the heels of Saturday's rain-shortened doubleheader loss. Kannapolis shutout Hagerstown 3-0 in the opener and was awarded a 4-1 win in the nightcap when rain came after the fifth inning.

Neither could Municipal Stadium. Starting pitchers Colten Willems and Cole Kimball handcuffed Lake County's offense while the Captains' pitchers unraveled in a 2-0, 8-0 doubleheader sweep. And not to be undone, Hagerstown's 77-year-old stadium decided to blow out at the seams, too. It wasn't earth shattering ... more like window shattering.
