CLEBURNE, Texas (June 19, 2019) – Heavy rain and lightning forced a suspension of play between the Cleburne Railroaders and the Texas AirHogs on Wednesday night at The Depot.

Texas started the night with five straight baserunners, scoring three runs on RBI singles from Stewart Ijames and Jonathan Moroney. Cleburne answered with a two-out RBI single from Daniel Robertson to trim the lead to 3-1.
The AirHogs pushed the lead back to three with an unearned run in the fourth, but the Railroaders again had a response as Jonathan Rodriguez doubled home a pair and Grant Buck looped a run-scoring single to tie the game at 4-4.
Three more Texas runs came home in the top of the sixth, scoring on an RBI groundout, an error, and a run-scoring double from Josh Prince. The Railroaders were rallying in the bottom of the inning, scoring a run on a Robertson single and loading the bases with nobody out before play was suspended.
