Rain forces a postponement of Tuesday's game necessitating Wednesday's double-header. Buffalo outlasts Brooklyn in the opener. Game two is suspended in the 12th inning with the game tied at five.
First place Indianapolis defeat the ChiFeds at Weegham Park and now lead Chicago by two games. Fourth place Brooklyn (58-57) now falls 7.5 games back of the Hoosiers with 39 games left to play.
No rest for the weary. There's another scheduled twin bill to be played on Thursday before the Tip Tops return home to Brooklyn.
