SDSU-Air Force Baseball Game Suspended In Third Inning
April 20, 2007
SAN DIEGO - Friday night's baseball game between Air Force and San Diego State was suspended in the bottom of the third inning due to rain. Play was halted with the Aztecs leading, 2-0.
The contest began on time just after 6:00 p.m., but suffered the first rain delay of the night at 6:25 with the game in the bottom of the second inning. Play resumed at 7:16 with the second round of rain coming at 7:43.
SDSU puts its two runs on the board in the bottom of the third just before the final rain delay. A two-out single by Joe Spiers was followed by a double to left by Nick Romero. Frank LoNigro then singled to center to bring home both runs just before the rains came. Coincidentally, it was LoNigro who was at bat in the second inning when the first rain delay occurred.
The game will be resumed on Saturday (Apr. 21) at 1:00 p.m. at Tony Gwynn Stadium and will be followed by the seven-inning contest that is the makeup of the game that was snowed out at Air Force in mid-March.
The Aztecs and Falcons will complete the weekend series with a doubleheader on Sunday (Apr. 22) with the start time to be determined. Both of those games will be nine-inning contests.
Fans holding tickets for Friday's game can use them for admission to Saturday's twin bill.
