STATE COLLEGE – Heavy rain and thunderstorms in the State College area forced the Spikes and Staten Island Yankees to halt their game on Sunday evening at Medlar Field at Lubrano Park just before the bottom of the third inning was to start with the score tied, 0-0. The two teams will resume the contest on Monday as part of a makeshift doubleheader starting at Noon, with the completion of the suspended game to be followed by a seven-inning game between the Spikes and Yankees.

Dewin Perez had pitched three scoreless innings for the Spikes (21-8), yielding only a walk while striking out one. Jake Stone notched the only hit of the game before its suspension when he singled off Staten Island (15-14) starter Sean Carley in the second inning.
Perez and Carley are the current pitchers of record for the suspended game. The Spikes will be seeking their 11th victory in the last 12 games when the game resumes on Monday.
The probable starters for Monday afternoon’s game, which will now be a seven-inning contest following the completion of the suspended game, were right-hander Fernando Baez (1-0) for State College and right-hander Jordan Cote (0-1) for Staten Island.
