Wood Ducks playoff series now best-of-3, only one game in Kinston
KINSTON, Lenoir County - Wednesday's rainout of the Down East Wood Ducks' Carolina League playoff game with Myrtle Beach was a double dose of bad news.

The series then shifts to Myrtle Beach, S.C., where the Pelicans will now host the other two games, a doubleheader scheduled for Friday starting at 5:05 p.m. If a third game is needed, it will immediately follow.
Here's the schedule for the series:
-- Game 1: Myrtle Beach at Down East - Grainger Stadium - Kinston, Thursday, 6 p.m.
-- Game 2: Down East at Myrtle Beach - TicketReturn.Com Field - Myrtle Beach, S.C. - Friday, 5:05 p.m.
-- Game 3*: Down East at Myrtle Beach - TicketReturn.Com Field - Myrtle Beach, S.C. - Friday, 30 minutes after Game 2 (*If necessary)
The winner advances to the Carolina League championship series.
