Rain hits Senior Baseball title game among others

Loyalsock and Montoursville hit a snag in their District 12 Senior Baseball game on Monday, when heavy rain and lightning forced a postponement of play in the top of the third inning, with the score tied at 1-1.

The stoppage came in the midst of a bases-loaded situation for Montoursville, which had just earned its first two hits of the contest before seeing a batter walked. The team’s next hitter, Aiden Plants, was hoping to give his squad a little breathing room when the loud roar of thunder stifled his plans.

The run Montoursville already scored came in the top of the first inning, after a booming pop-fly to center field delivered by Devin Singer sent Nick Russo home on the tag-up from third. Loyalsock answered back in the bottom of the inning, when Joey Worth blasted a line-drive double to left field that sent Michael Stopper home from second base.

The game is scheduled to resume play today in Montoursville at 6. Montoursville, which won the first game, can take the title with a win.

Elsewhere, Keystone led Loyalsock, 7-0, in the second inning of their 10-11 Baseball playoff. That game will resume at 6 tonight at Loyalsock.

For Keystone, Tyler Confer had two singles and a run, while Brady Williams hit a two-run single and Gannon Gill homered.
