Indians and Reds Rained Out on Thursday

Steady rains throughout the day on Thursday washed out the series finale between the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Indians from Progressive Field.

The Indians will now hope for better weather this weekend as the Kansas City Royals come to town for their first trip to Cleveland this season. The Reds will continue their road trip in Philadelphia against the Phillies.

The game between the Indians and Reds will be made up on Monday, July 24, at 7:10 PM on a mutual off day. It is the third contest to be postponed for the Indians this season, joining an April 19 game in Minnesota against the Twins and a May 4 affair in Detroit with the Tigers. It was the second time a game has been rained out this season for the Reds.

The matchup between the two clubs in the series opener on Wednesday night was delayed two hours by heavy rains that finally paused the game in the top of the sixth inning. The Indians, who led 3-2 at the time, would lose 4-3 on two Reds runs in the top of the ninth off of closer Cody Allen.

Per a press release from the Indians, fans holding tickets to Thursday’s postponed game can attend the July 24 makeup game. Fans who purchased tickets directly from the Indians can also exchange their tickets for one of two eligible games next month – Monday, June 26, or Wednesday, June 28, with both games coming during a four-game series against the Texas Rangers.

Season ticket holders and those who purchased their tickets to Thursday’s game online through the team’s website will receive instructions via email regarding how to exchange their current tickets.

Mike Clevinger (2-1, 1.56 ERA), who was expected to start in Thursday’s cancelled game, will make the start Friday when the Royals come to town. Kansas City right-hander Ian Kennedy (0-4, 4.06) will take the mound for the opposition. The Royals’ game on Thursday from New York with the Yankees was similarly rained out.
