The trade-off for a lot of beautiful days at the ball park is the occasional day like today where decidedly important playoff baseball games all get postponed because Mother Nature can’t get it together.
It’s a wash for both the 6A and 5A South State playoff series with both of tonight’s games being postponed due to the bad weather.
St. Martin will now look to host Biloxi at 7 p.m. tomorrow for game two of that series. Pearl River Central will try to do the like against West Jones except for game one.
As it pertains to the 6A match-up between the Indians and Yellowjackets, the latter currently has a 1-0 series edge on the back of their 5-1 victory of Big Red last night. That was just Biloxi’s fourth loss of the season and its first in the playoffs.
For St. Martin it was a big shot in the arm following a 12-2 loss to Biloxi back in March, the worst defeat of the entire season for the Jackets. The good news for the Indians is they haven’t lost back-to-back games all year.
The Shuckers game tonight was also postponed. That means they’re looking at a doubleheader against the Montgomery Biscuits starting at 5:35 p.m. tomorrow with a pair of seven inning games, weather permitting.
MGCCC baseball also rained out in its second game of the Region 23 Tournament. PRCC was able to get its game in against Northeast, but that’s not really a good thing with the Wildcats going down 1-0.
As for softball, both MGCCC and Pearl River Community College getting bumped back a day at the MACJC Tournament, looking ahead to a pair of winner’s bracket games tomorrow.
