The Friday game scheduled for 1:00 p.m. between the Peoria Chiefs and the Beloit Snappers has been postponed due to rain. The two teams will make up the game in a Saturday double header beginning at Noon, one hour earlier than originally scheduled.
The Easter Egg Hunt originally scheduled for Saturday will be moved to between the two seven-inning games. The Easter Bunny will still make an appearance at O’Brien Field on Saturday during the first home double header of the season. Fans with tickets to Friday’s game can exchange them at the Box Office for any 2011 regular season game based on availability.
The Chiefs will start LH Cam Greathouse (0-0, 6.23) in game one against Beloit LH Logan Darnell (0-1. 4.09). Game two will start 30 minutes after the completion of game one and will feature Chiefs LH Graham Hicks (0-1, 0.90) against Snappers RH Adrian Salcedo (0-1, 4.22). Both games are scheduled for seven innings.
Peoria has already played two double headers in the last week with a split on Sunday in Wisconsin and a sweep of Quad Cities on Wednesday. Beloit has split a pair of double headers on the season, at Quad Cities April 9 and against Cedar Rapids on Sunday. They also had games postponed on Tuesday and Wednesday in Wisconsin that will be made up May 18-19.
