By Connor Wachtel
Mankato, Minn. – The Mankato MoonDogs and Waterloo Bucks played until the top of the third with one out before rescheduling Thursday night’s tilt to Friday evening.
Gates will open at 3:35 p.m. on Friday with the first pitch going out at 4:05 p.m. to resume the rescheduled game from tonight (7-18-19). The game will begin with one out in the top of the third and a 3-1 advantage for Mankato, picking up where the game left off.
Once the nine innings of game one are completed, game two will require readmittance after attending the first game.

The Frank will be cleared out and the second game will take place approximately 30 minutes after the first game.
