AAA: Postponed due to air quality

  • The fires are bad, and Reno’s getting hit hard by the air.  Thursday’s game was postponed with no makeup announced.  The teams also announced that Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s game will take place in Sacramento (notably not in front of fans).  None of those games were announced as a doubleheader to make up for Thursday, nor was there a specific statement on Monday or Tuesday’s games.

Richmond Notes:

  • Diego Rincones had his second 3-hit game in the past six games, and for the first time, his batting average in Double-A Richmond (.303) is higher than it was at the end of his time in High-A Eugene (.300).
