It was that kind of night, starting with a 5.5-hour rain delay and the cancellation of the second game of the double-header.

Then, after finally getting the okay at 9:45, Trevor Richards got rocked for a second straight outing, giving up six runs (four earned) in five innings while Zach Wheeler was Richards’ polar opposite, hurling eight shutout frames.

Let’s try two…again. Sandy Alcantara (2-0) attempts to stay undefeated in his third career start while opposed by Steven Matz (5-11) at 3:10 p.m. Yesterday’s starters for the second game remain the same. Twenty minutes after the first game ends, Jeff Brigham (0-1) takes the hill for the Fish against Jason Vargas (5-9) of the Mets.
