Trailing 6-0 after five innings, Gary scored three runs in the next two innings but failed to complete the comeback against Sioux Falls and fell to the Canaries, 6-3, in the opening game of the series on a warm Friday night at Sioux Falls Stadium. The RailCats are now 2-5 in the series opener following Friday’s loss and have dropped three of their last four games.
The series finale between Chicago and Gary was suspended due to fog with the RailCats leading the Dogs, 4-3, with zero outs and an 0-1 count on Randy Santiesteban in the bottom of the third. The game will resume on July 19th with the time to be determined. The two teams will then play their originally scheduled game (7-inning contest) on July 19th 30 minutes after the conclusion of Thursday’s suspended game.
