Sea Dogs postponed for second straight night
The Portland Sea Dogs’ game against the Binghamton Mets on Wednesday night was postponed by inclement weather for a second straight day, resulting in two doubleheaders next month.
Tuesday’s game, which was postponed by heavy rain, will be made up May 21 beginning at 5 p.m.
The overnight snow created unplayable field conditions for Wednesday’s game, which will be played May 19 at 5 p.m.
Tickets dated for the regularly scheduled games are good for both games of each doubleheader.
Fans with tickets to either postponed game may exchange them for those of equal or lesser value to any remaining home game.
