RiverRats could use home wins over Sliders
August 2, 2012INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
Richmond’s RiverRats will bid farewell to McBride Stadium for the regular season starting tonight.
The ’Rats have two home games left on the slate — with the chance for one more in the postseason should they make the championship series.
First things first, though, as the RiverRats are still in a race for the East Division’s second-half playoff spot. Richmond plays host tonight to Slippery Rock with a 6:35 p.m. first pitch.
The RiverRats and Sliders also play at McBride Stadium at 7:05 p.m. Friday.
“I’m looking to hopefully send it off with a win, or a couple,” said Richmond pitcher Lance Sheets.
Richmond won its last home game, halting Chillicothe 16-15 in a slugfest.
