    Chien-Ming Wang will be pitching in Trenton tomorrow. Via PennLive.com

    Rain suspended Thursday night’s Harrisburg Senators game at Trenton’s Waterfront Park.

    The Senators leading 3-1 in the middle of the second inning, the game will resume Friday night at 6:05.

    After completing the nine-inning game, the teams will play a seven-inning contest Friday night. Then they’ll play a doubleheader Saturday night starting at 5:05 and finish off the five-game Eastern League series with a 5:05 p.m. game Sunday.

    Harrisburg (51-53) fell behind 1-0 in the first but had just rallied for three runs in the second against the host Thunder (60-43). Highlights were Brian Goodwin’s two-run single and Jeff Kobernus’ RBI single, both with two outs.

    Danny Rosenbaum started for the Senators but will not continue Friday.

    Trevor Holder will pick up the action in the bottom of the second, and Kevin Pucetas will start the nightcap for manager Matthew LeCroy’s bunch.

    Saturday’s starters will be rehabbing Washington Nationals pitcher Chien-Ming Wang and spot starter Ryan Tatusko. Ryan Perry is slated to start Sunday.

    Wang pitched the very first Yankees game that my kids ever saw (back in 2007). That seems like such a long time ago now…

      Wang’s a favorite of mine. I always felt the Yankees rushed him back and treated him poorly after his foot injury. He’s never been right since. He’s already 32. I wish he could be contributing to this great year they’re having.

      They might’ve rushed him back but I’m not so sure they treated him poorly. The timing didn’t work out vis-a-vis his injury status, upcoming arbitration and the Yankees’ need to overhaul their rotation.

      I would’ve loved it if the team had offered him a modest deal to stick around but they took the opinion that his talent/success was on borrowed time anyway. Lee Sinins predicted a Wang implosion years before it happened. Granted, Wang’s injury predicated his implosion but I think the Yanks may have seen Wang the same way Sinins did (low K’s/high contact rate usually not lasting long in the big leagues).
