WINNIPEG – The Winnipeg Goldeyes will have to wait another day to try to take their first lead of the American Association championship series.

Game three between the Goldeyes and Wichita Wingnuts at Shaw Park was postponed due to rain Saturday evening. League officials delayed the start for roughly an hour before calling off the contest. It will instead be played Sunday with a 4:05 p.m. first pitch.
