NOTES: Yesterday's rainout in Lexington forced the second doubleheader of the season for the Greenville Drive. Pat Light will get his second start tonight in game one with Austin Maddox scheduled to be the game two starter...Henry Owens will get his second start of this season, this time in the home opener for Salem. Owens threw five scoreless innings in his debut against the Frederick Keys. He used 70 pitches and allowed 2 hits and 2 walks while striking out 4. All the hits and walks that Owens allowed in that game were to left handed batters...Portland and New Britain's early brunch battle was postponed early in the morning. A makeup date will be determined at a later time...The PawSox also got postponed tonight. David Ortiz will continue his rehab at McCoy Stadium tomorrow when Pawtucket hosts Rochester in a double header starting at noon.

New England teams
7:05 p.m.
New Hampshire Fisher Cats - Tyson Brummett (2012: 5-6, 3.20 ERA, 83 Ks)
at Binghamton Mets - Tyler Pill (2012: 9-5, 2.31 ERA, 105 Ks)

NOTES: After one Triple-A start with Buffalo, Tyson Brummett makes his Fisher Cats debut in Binghamton tonight. Against Rochester on Sunday, in just 1/3 of an inning, he allowed 3 runs, 3 hits and 4 earned runs. Brummett is used to life in the Eastern League having pitched for Reading in parts of the last five seasons. New Hampshire has one four of their last five on the heels of a solid outing Thursday night from Deck McGuire who allowed only 1 run over seven innings. After going hitlesss in his first two games, outfielder Kevin Pillar is 12-for-26 while hitting safely in the last five.
