CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) -- The rain was not heavy, but it was steady enough to cause problems for game two between Chattanooga and Jacksonville on Friday night at AT&T Field.
Members of the Lookouts' grounds crew did their best to keep up with the moisture, but hours of constant rainfall eventually made the field unplayable in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Puddles began to form across the infield, forcing the umpires to suspend the game and call for the tarp with the Lookouts holding a 1-0 lead. Play will resume at 6:15 p.m. ET on Saturday.
Game three of the series will follow the conclusion of the suspended game, but it will be a seven-inning contest.
Brian Cavazos-Galvez's first-inning single to left-center plated Ozzie Martinez for the game's lone run. Martinez had singled and advanced to third on a throwing error by pitcher Sam Dyson during a pick-off attempt.
It's likely Chris Reed would have preferred to keep playing in the soggy conditions. The Chattanooga starter struck out six in a row to start the game and recorded nine K's in the first 12 outs across the first four innings.
