Chucks Matchup Against Madison is Suspended After Two Innings

WAUSAU, WI – The Wisconsin Woodchucks and the Madison Mallards’ matchup Saturday evening was suspended due to rain at Athletic Park after two innings.

Increasing rainfall in the opening pair of innings dampened the playing surface before the stoppage was called with the teams still scoreless.

Set for 6:05 p.m., the game began just ahead of 6:30 after the grounds crew initially repaired the field after a day of showers in Marathon County.

The teams will finish the nine-inning contest Sunday before their regularly scheduled series finale. The second game of the twin bill will be seven innings. First pitch is 1:05 p.m.

Tickets for the June 26 game will turn into vouchers that can be redeemed for general admission bleacher seating for any regular season 2021 home game based on availability.
