The Bakersfield Train Robbers played their Tuesday night game against Tucson as scheduled at Sam Lynn Ballpark after a light standard failure had caused three games to be suspended or postponed in the past week.

Kern County owns Sam Lynn, and Ryan Alsop, the county’s Chief Administrative Officer, said Tuesday on Twitter that the light was fixed as of 6:15 p.m. Monday.

The Train Robbers postponed their Monday game because they weren’t sure the light would be fixed in time. One of two suspended games from last week was completed Monday afternoon; the other one, plus the postponed game, will only be made up if they have playoff implications, according to Pecos League commissioner Andrew Dunn.

The Train Robbers are in second place in the Pacific Division with 11 scheduled games remaining.
