For starters, light rain and a delay

Game 2 of the Midwest League championship series between Fort Wayne and Wisconsin was scheduled to start at 1:05 p.m. at Fox Cities Stadium. But light rain in the area has pushed the start back at least 30 minutes.

When the game does get underway, the TinCaps will have Colin Rea on the mound. Rea went 5-10 with a 4.11 ERA during the regular season. He pitched well in relief in Game 3 of the Lake County series and earned the win.

Wisconsin will go with Chad Pierce. He had a 7-5 record with a 3.47 ERA. He threw a complete-game, three-hit shutout in a playoff victory against Burlington.
