GARY | The RailCats are hoping to knock off the doldrums from the one-game hiccup, but to do so, they'll need Mother Nature to cooperate.
Staring at the radar, the RailCats could either be dumped on with rain in the next half hour to hour (it's 4:30 right now), or miss the weather anomalies all together.
After falling to Sioux City on Monday, the RailCats -- the best team in the American Association's Central Division -- are hoping to redeem themselves against the Explorers, who jumped from last overall to second-to-last with the win.
As the Xs are divisional foes, the 'Cats need all the wins they can muster within the division, especially early. The Kansas City T-Bones, who sit behind the RailCats three games back in the Central, didn't play yesterday and are on a two-game winning streak, having won six of their last 10.
At 5:06, the tarp comes out, interrupting batting practice.
That'll be it, the game was called at 6:15 p.m. The RailCats will play Sioux City in a doubleheader Wednesday, two seven-inning games.
