Indianapolis Indians to Host Pawtucket for Doubleheader on July 28

The Indianapolis Indians announced the makeup date for their game against the Pawtucket Red Sox that was rained out on April 26. The rescheduled game will be the second game of a doubleheader at Victory Field on Friday, July 28.

The April 26 game was played in Pawtucket. Since the Tribe won’t make a return trip to Pawtucket this season, the Red Sox will be listed as the home team for the second game, even though the game will take place in Indianapolis.

First pitch for the first game is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. The second game will start 30 minutes after the first game ends. Since July 28 is a Friday Fireworks night, postgame fireworks will still take place after the second game.

Tickets for the doubleheader are available at IndyIndians.com. Fans who already purchased tickets for the originally scheduled game on July 28 can attend both games. Any new ticket purchased for July 28 is also good for both games.

TRIBE NOTES

A LONG-AWAITED GIFT: Tribe infielder Gift Ngoepe was recalled by the Pirates yesterday, making him the first African-born player to reach the major leagues. He entered last night’s game against the Cubs as part of a double-switch by manager Clint Hurdle, playing second base. In the bottom of the fourth, he pounded a 3-1 offering from Jon Lester into center field for a base hit. He walked and struck out in his next final two plate appearances against Lester and Carl Edwards Jr. Ngoepe, 27, played in 704 games over his eight-plus year minor league career, all of them spent in the Pittsburgh farm system after signing on Sept. 29, 2008. This year for Indy, he was batting .241 (14-for-58) with five extra-base hits and four RBI, while seeing time defensively at shortstop, second base and third base.

BYE BYE BARBATO: Right-hander Johnny Barbato was officially recalled by Pittsburgh Tuesday after tossing three scoreless frames in two appearances for Indy. He was acquired by Pittsburgh from the Yankees in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations on April 17.

MONDAY HEADLINES: Reliever Dovydas Neverauskas, born and raised in Vilnius, Lithuania, made his Major League debut Monday night for Pittsburgh in a 14-3 loss to the Cubs. Neverauskas’ appearance was the first by a Lithuania born-and-raised player. In 1933, outfielder Joe Zapustas played for the Philadelphia A’s. Zapustas was born in Lithuania but raised in Boston, Mass. Neverauskas had thrown 8.1 innings this year for the Tribe without allowing an earned run. He was optioned to Indy yesterday to make room for Ngoepe on Pittsburgh’s 25-man roster.

MAN IN CHARGE: Today’s game two starter, Tyler Eppler, has been one of the IL’s best pitchers in 2017. He ranks among league leaders in WHIP (2nd, 0.65), batting average against (4th, .164) and ERA (5th, 1.06). He has won each of his last two starts, snapping what were five- and four-game losing streaks for the Indians.

He entered last night’s game against the Cubs as part of a double-switch by manager Clint Hurdle, playing second base. In the bottom of the fourth, he pounded a 3-1 offering from Jon Lester into center field for a base hit. He walked and struck out in his next final two plate appearances against Lester and Carl Edwards Jr. Ngoepe, 27, played in 704 games over his eight-plus year minor league career, all of them spent in the Pittsburgh farm system after signing on Sept. 29, 2008. This year for Indy, he was batting .241 (14-for-58) with five extra-base hits and four RBI, while seeing time defensively at shortstop, second base and third base.

BYE BYE BARBATO: Right-hander Johnny Barbato was officially recalled by Pittsburgh Tuesday after tossing three scoreless frames in two appearances for Indy. He was acquired by Pittsburgh from the Yankees in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations on April 17.

MONDAY HEADLINES: Reliever Dovydas Neverauskas, born and raised in Vilnius, Lithuania, made his Major League debut Monday night for Pittsburgh in a 14-3 loss to the Cubs. Neverauskas’ appearance was the first by a Lithuania born-and-raised player. In 1933, outfielder Joe Zapustas played for the Philadelphia A’s. Zapustas was born in Lithuania but raised in Boston, Mass. Neverauskas had thrown 8.1 innings this year for the Tribe without allowing an earned run. He was optioned to Indy yesterday to make room for Ngoepe on Pittsburgh’s 25-man roster.

MAN IN CHARGE: Today’s game two starter, Tyler Eppler, has been one of the IL’s best pitchers in 2017. He ranks among league leaders in WHIP (2nd, 0.65), batting average against (4th, .164) and ERA (5th, 1.06). He has won each of his last two starts, snapping what were five- and four-game losing streaks for the Indians.

Wednesday’s scheduled International League game between the host Pawtucket Red Sox and the Indianapolis Indians at McCoy Stadium has been postponed due to rain, wet field conditions, and poor drainage at McCoy Stadium.

The PawSox and Indians will play a single-admission make-up doubleheader tomorrow (Thursday) at 12:05 pm at McCoy (two 7-inning games). Tonight’s washout will have to be made-up as part of a doubleheader when the PawSox play at Indianapolis from July 28-30 (tomorrow will by Indy’s final regular-season visit to Pawtucket).

The consecutive rainouts at McCoy Stadium are a first for the PawSox since April 17-18, 2007, when back-to-back affairs against Rochester were postponed. Indianapolis last had consecutive games postponed from April 7-9, 2016, when its season opener was pushed back three straight days due to inclement weather at Columbus.

The Indians will send right-hander Clay Holmes (0-1, 5.06) to the bump for game one tomorrow, and he’ll be opposed by PawSox lefty Brian Johnson (0-0, 1.69). Game two will feature Tribe righty Tyler Eppler (2-0, 1.06) against right-hander Shawn Haviland (2-1, 3.38). Both games can be heard on Fox Sports 97.5 and AM 1260.
