Memphis, Tn. – Game 1 of the Pacific Coast League (PCL) Championship Series featuring the El Paso Chihuahuas and the Memphis Redbirds (St. Louis Cardinals) has been postponed due to inclement weather, announced league officials.
The series, originally slated to begin on Tuesday, will start on Wednesday, September 13th at 7:05 p.m. CDT at AutoZone Park in Memphis, Tenn. Game 2 has been rescheduled for Thursday, September 14th with a 12:05 p.m. CDT start.
The best of five series continues in El Paso with Game 3 scheduled for Friday, September 15th at 7:05 p.m. MDT. Games 4 and 5 will be played on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, if necessary.
The Chihuahuas are seeking their second consecutive championship after a 3-0 series sweep of the Reno Aces (Arizona Diamondbacks) for the Pacific Conference title, winning eight of their last 10 games to clinch the division title.
The last Padres Triple-A affiliate to win back-to-back titles was the 1975-1976 Hawaii Islanders.
