Mequon, Wis. — The series finale between the Kalamazoo Growlers and Lakeshore Chinooks fell victim to unrelenting fog conditions at Kapco Park in Mequon, Wis. for the second straight evening. The game on Monday night did not make it out of the starting gate and will be rescheduled as part of a doubleheader in Mequon in early August.
Ryan Colegate (Ohio Dominican) will get the start on Tuesday night for the Growlers as they host the other new franchise in the Northwoods League, the Kenosha Kingfish, at Homer Stryker Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
