Akron, Ohio — The Eastern League game between the Portland Sea Dogs and Akron RubberDucks scheduled for Saturday night at Canal Park was postponed because of rain.

The teams will wrap up the three-game series with a doubleheader Sunday beginning at 1:05 p.m.

The RubberDucks (59-60) won the series opener 18-2 on Friday night behind six RBI from Todd Hankins, including two homers, and five RBI from Nellie Rodriguez.

Mitch Atkins has been named the starter for the opener for the Sea Dogs (45-72) after Saturday’s scheduled starter, Keith Couch, was put on the disabled list.

Atkins (3-6, 4.99) faces Akron’s Nick Pasquale (1-6, 5.10). Teddy Stankiewicz (4-7, 5.02) goes for the Sea Dogs against D.J. Brown (6-6, 4.42) in the second game.

The Sea Dogs activated pitcher Mike McCarthy to take Couch’s spot on the roster.

Portland returns home for a five-game series in three days against the Altoona Curve from Tuesday through Thursday.
