The Nashville Outlaws game against the Richmond RiverRats Saturday was suspended due to lightning in the top of the 11th inning with the game tied at 3-3. The game was called at 9:52 p.m. CT after the teams tried to wait out the lightning in the Richmond, Ind., area.
The game will be made up (resumed) on August 3rd when Richmond travels to Nashville to face the Outlaws.
Nashville scored all three of its runs in the top of the third when they sent eight batters to the plate in the inning. Matt Borgschulte (Western Kentucky) and Jared Fancher (TCU) registered hits in the inning while Doug Joyce (Florida International) and Fancher recorded RBI. The Outlaws also took advantage of one costly Richmond error in the inning when Borgschulte came home on a fielding error by the Richmond shortstop on a grounder by Greg Bachman (Austin Peay).
Nashville led 3-0 until the bottom of the sixth when the RiverRats (7-2) tied the game on a three-run double by Tim Rupp.
The game remained tied the last three innings of regulation, forcing the game to go into extra innings.
The Outlaws (3-5) will return home to the Music City on Sunday as they prepare for an upcoming seven-game homestand starting on Monday night against the Quincy Gems. Monday night's game against the Gems will start at 7 p.m. at Hawkins Field.
