Power opens homestand vs. Kannapolis

The West Virginia Power will play for the first time since Thursday when it begins a seven-game homestand beginning with Kannapolis at 7:05 p.m. today at Appalachian Power Park.

In the last game the Power played it earned a 4-3 decision at Kannapolis.

Friday’s game was postponed because of rain and a Saturday doubleheader scheduled because of Friday’s postponement also was washed out.
