Quad Cities has third rainout in opening week-long home stand

DAVENPORT, Iowa (APRIL 17, 2013) – Wednesday night’s game between the Quad Cities River Bandits and Clinton LumberKings at Modern Woodmen Park has been postponed. The game will be made up at a later date. All tickets for Wednesday’s game may be exchanged for any other 2013 River Bandits home game.

Quad Cities (8-3) and Clinton (5-8) are scheduled to meet for one more three-game series in the first half, as the River Bandits visit Clinton Saturday, May 25, through Monday, May 27. Quad Cities has been rained out of four games in the last eight days, including home games Thursday, Monday and Wednesday. The rainout from Thursday against Peoria will be made up in a doubleheader Saturday, May 11. Monday’s rainout was made up with a doubleheader that Clinton and Quad Cities split.

The River Bandits begin a six-game road trip Thursday night at 6:30 p.m. in Kane County. The River Bandits have left-hander Colton Cain (0-0) and right-hander Mike Hauschild (0-0) scheduled to pitch as a starting tandem. All games can be heard live presented by Mediacom for free at www.riverbandits.com.

ABOUT THE BANDITS: The River Bandits will make one of the biggest improvements to Modern Woodmen Park since the ballpark was first built back in 1931! A new Ferris wheel, standing 112 feet over the playing field, is scheduled to open in early June, along with two new zip lines, a carousel, a Frog Hopper, new bounce houses and many other fun attractions. The team also boasts a new major league affiliate, the Houston Astros, and fans will see last year’s No. 1 overall draft pick, Carlos Correa. The Astros will also make the very first selection in the major league draft this June and could have another top pick end up in the Quad Cities. With new rides, new attractions, new improvements, a new affiliate and future major league stars, this season will be one every fan will not want to miss!
