Bucks To Play Twinbill At Willmar After Postponement

The Waterloo Bucks had their scheduled Northwoods League game at Willmar postponed Thursday night (Aug. 11, 2016).

Unplayable field conditions at Willmar’s Baker Field at Bill Taunton Stadium (see photo below) prevented the teams from starting their pivotal two-game series, which will have a major impact on the fourth and final playoff spot in the North Division. Waterloo (34-34) currently trails the Stingers (38-30) by four games in the overall standings. To secure a post-season berth, the Bucks will need to win their remaining four games and Willmar has to lose its last four.

Thursday’s postponed game will be made up as part of a 5:05 p.m. doubleheader on Friday (Aug. 12), but the twinbill will be played at another venue in a nearby town due to the field conditions in Willmar. The Bucks and Stingers will play two seven-inning games at Green Lake Baseball Diamond in Spicer, Minn., a community of about 1,000 residents approximately 15 miles northeast of Willmar.

Right-handed pitcher Kyle Leahy (1-1, 4.50) is slated to start Game One for the Bucks against Willmar left-hander Bradley Bailey (2-1, 3.14). In the nightcap, Waterloo plans to send right-hander Jared Crescentini (5-3, 3.84) to the mound against Jayce Vancena (5-2, 4.32).

THIS WEEKEND: The Bucks host their final regular-season series of the year at Riverfront Stadium in Waterloo. They play St. Cloud at 7:05 p.m. on Saturday and 3:35 p.m. on Sunday.
