Cougars, Bandits bid adieu for now

Monday's rainout between the Cougars and Quad Cities will not be made up because the clubs are not scheduled to meet again this season.

Although there could have been some intrigue given today's announcement that the parent Houston Astros have promoted righty Mark Appel – last month's No. 1 overall draft pick – to Quad Cities, it's probably for the best.

The Cougars were 4-13 against the River Bandits this season. Righty Lance McCullers, Monday's scheduled starter for Quad Cities, would have been pursuing his third victory against the Cougars. He also took a no-decision after pitching five scoreless innings in the second game of the season.

"It helps them, too," McCullers said. "They've seen me, I've seen them. We both know each other's strengths and weaknesses."

That is, until a storm comes.
