Aces game postponed due to fallen light fixture

Nevada Appeal Staff Report

PORTLAND, Ore. – Wednesday’s game between the Reno Aces and Portland Beavers at PGE Park was postponed. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader Friday.

Prior to Wednesday’s game, a small light fixture at PGE Park came loose and fell to the ground. No one was injured, but PGE Park officials will now run a thorough inspection of all overhead lights at the ballpark before Thursday’s game.

After Thursday’s regularly-scheduled 7:05 p.m. game, the two teams will play a doubleheader on Friday, beginning at 4:30 p.m. PT. The teams will play two seven-inning games.

On Thursday, Yusmeiro Petit (0-1, 7.27 ERA) gets the start for Reno, making a Major League rehab appearance. Portland is set to counter with Mike O’Connor (0-0, 7.71). First pitch from PGE Park is set for 7:05 p.m., and the action can be heard live on Fox Sports Radio 1450 AM.

After completing this 8-game tour of the Pacific Northwest, the Aces return home for an action-packed four-game homestand at Aces Ballpark on Saturday.
