Drew Turocy and Aneury Tavarez went 2-for-3 in the game with Tavarez driving in two runs while Turocy scored twice.

HIGHLIGHTS: The game was rained out and since it is the last time these two teams were scheduled to meet this season it is now listed as a cancelled game and it will not be made up. The bat promotion schedule for Friday has now been moved to June 30th.
