FORT WAYNE, Ind. – The Fort Wayne TinCaps and Quad Cities River Bandits (Kansas City Royals affiliate) had their game on Wednesday night at Parkview Field suspended by rain in the bottom of the third inning. Fort Wayne was trailing, 4-2, at the time when the game went into a delay, but had the tying runs at first and second base with one out.

Before the rain arrived, the highlight of the game for the TinCaps was a two-run home run hit by catcher Adam Kerner in the bottom of the second. Fort Wayne was down, 4-0, when Kerner launched his first homer of the year over the wall in left-center field. Quad Cities, however, had raced out to the lead with three runs in the first and another in the second. 
A light rain began as the home third was commencing, and gradually intensified, leading the umpires to call the teams off the field. As the rain continued to pick up over the next 30 minutes, and with more rain forecast, the determination was made to turn the delay into a suspension.
