Oh, Nuts! Modesto doubleheader with Bakersfield rained out

Today's doubleheader between the Modesto Nuts and Bakersfield Blaze has been rained out.

The infield had been covered by a tarp the entire time and would have been ready for play, but the rain of the last two days left the outfield soggy and the warning tracks muddy and completely unplayable.

The games will be made up during Bakersfield's next trip into Modesto, with the teams playing twin seven-inning doubleheaders on Friday and Saturday, June 18 and 19, with the openers set for 5:05 p.m.

The Nuts open a four-game home series on Thursday against the Stockton Ports, with Thursday's first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
