GARY, IN. 5-31-2010 — The start of the Gary SouthShore RailCats six-game homestand will have to wait a day as the ‘Cats and Winnipeg Goldeyes were postponed Monday afternoon at U. S. Steel Yard with a steady rain hammering Northwest Indiana.
The two clubs now will open their three-game series Tuesday at 6 p.m. with a pair of seven inning games. The doubleheader will be the first of the year in the Northern League.
