Michael Suchy was 0-for-2, and pitchers Colin Poche and Bret Dahlson didn’t make it into the game.

The Stingers will resume Sunday’s game today at Green Bay. It was suspended due to rain tied 8-8 in the ninth inning Sunday night. They will play their regularly scheduled game at 7:05 p.m.

Willmar is 9-11 in the second half in the NWL North Division and 32-23 overall.
