Last night's game between the Mud Hens and Durham at Fifth Third Field was postponed by rain.
The two teams waited through a rain delay of 2 hours and 26 minutes before last night's contest was called.
As a result of the rainout the two teams will play a doubleheader tonight, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Hens will start right-hander Pat Ahearne (7-7) and left-hander Andy Van Hekken (7-2), while the Bulls will counter with right-handers Jason Standridge (3-1) and Jim Magrane (5-2).
The television status of tonight's games, which were originally scheduled to be broadcast on TV5, is uncertain.
NOTES: Shortstop Danny Klassen, who has not played since being hit on the wrist by a pitch in Syracuse July 10, hopes to return to action today.
