Bolts Schedlued to Wrap Up Regular Season Against Braves at Blair

The Silver Spring-Takoma Thunderbolts, safe in second place despite last night’s game in Alexandria (a win for the Aces with the game stopped in the sixth with the Aces leading, 5-2) will take on the FCA Braves at Blair in a 7 pm start.

The Braves won last night over the DC Grays, 11-9, at Lorton, and are now in third place by one game. The Grays go to Shirley Povich to play the Bethesda Big Train unless the game is rained out. Ditto for us as rain is predicted throughout the day.

The rain-battered Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League says its play-in games will take place on Thursday with the Semi-Final series beginning on Friday. The best of three series will run Friday-Sunday. The Friday game starts at 7 at Blair, and if necessary, a Sunday game at Blair would start at 4.

The League Championship Series (LCS) would begin the next day at the home park of the highest remaining seed and run through Wednesday if necessary.

Coverage of tonight’s game begins at 6:55 pm. Watch here for news of any rainout.
