PORTLAND — The Portland Sea Dogs postponed their Saturday game against the Trenton Thunder because of cold, windy weather.

The Sea Dogs made the announcement at 1 p.m., when the game was scheduled to start. The 35-degree weather and winds gusting over 20 mph created “unplayable field conditions,” according to the team.

The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on July 2.

The Sea Dogs and Thunder are scheduled to play again at 1 p.m. Sunday. The pitchers who were set to start Saturday will now start Sunday’s game — Kyle Kaminska for Portland and Trenton’s Francisco Randon.

Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew is expected to make a final rehab appearance Sunday before heading to Boston for the Red Sox home opener Monday against Baltimore.

Top pitching prospect Matt Barnes, who was scheduled to make his Double-A debut for the Sea Dogs on Sunday, had his start moved to Monday night against the Reading Phillies.
