* Update (5:12 p.m.)

The sun is out and shining at Avista Stadium, with just a few clouds directly over the stadium. Does not appear that the weather will be an issue for this doubleheader.



The Indians are scheduled to play Boise in a doubleheader today. The first game is set for 5:30 p.m. and the second will follow 30 minutes after the conclusion of the initial game. Both contests will be seven-inning affairs broadcast live on SWX (Comcast channel 115).
