Mother Nature was unkind to the Aberdeen IronBirds and their faithful fans Wednesday night as late day storms with heavy rain forced postponement of play at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium.

The IronBirds and Connecticut Tigers were resuming a game that was previously halted July 2 by more rain. The IronBirds were batting in the bottom of the seventh inning with two outs, a runner at third and the score knotted 3-3 when the rain began.
