Silver Hawks get assist from rain in beating Dragons, 3-2 in 6 innings

Raywilly Gomez and Matt Helm came through with back-to-back run-scoring doubles in the top of the sixth inning and the South Bend Silver Hawks got an assist from the rain clouds as they beat the much-improved the Dayton Dragons 3-2 on Monday night in a game shortened by rain to five and one-half innings.

The Dragons drop to 13-5 in the second half of the Midwest League, 48-40 overall.

The Silver Hawks took the lead in the top of the sixth inning and, due to heavy rain in the Dayton, Ohio area, the Dragons never got the opportunity to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning.

By rule, that criteria meet the conditions for a suspended game since the home team could not bat after a lead change in the top of the inning. But since South Bend and Dayton do not play again in 2011, Midwest League President George Spelius, with assistance from Mike Felt of the Professional Baseball Umpire Corporation, cited Minor League Baseball regulations to declare the Silver Hawks winners.

Rules state that in the event a suspended game cannot be resumed and the game has reached five full innings, the team leading at the time of the suspension or delay, shall be declared the winner.
