GRAND FORKS, B.C. — The Everett Merchants’ second divisional game at the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament was suspended after one inning Thursday after a thunderstorm drenched the field and flooded both dugouts at James Donaldson Stadium, Everett manager Harold Pyatte said.
The Merchants will resume their game against the San Francisco Seals at 8 a.m. Friday, and will play the Houston Westchase Express immediately following the conclusion of the suspended game.
The tournament director told Pyatte that all remaining divisional games on Friday and Saturday would be seven-inning contests to help the tournament get back on track after Thursday’s inclement weather.
The Merchants and Seals were locked in a scoreless game when the storm hit.
