Creekers threatening when rain moves in

Storm delays 11th Region final in 2nd

State Journal Staff Report Published:

Weather got the best of the 11th Region baseball tournament Thursday night, when heavy rains forced the championship game between Tates Creek and Madison Central to be suspended in the bottom of the second inning. The score was 0-0.

Play will resume tonight at 7 in the bottom of the second, where Tates Creek has the bases loaded with two outs.

The tournament is being played at Western Hills.

Madison Central (29-8) got the first two batters out in the second inning, but Tates Creek’s Jaren Shelby doubled, and Kendrick Cruise and Luke Rouse both drew walks to load the bases.

Tanner Hart will be at the plate when play resumes.

Tates Creek (32-6) got a lead-off double from Rouse in the bottom of the first inning, and Hart laid down a sacrifice bunt to send Rouse to third.

Devin Hairston drew a walk, but a fly ball and a grounder to second left Rouse stranded at third.

The Indians’ Josh Wright led off the second inning with an infield single, but Hart struck out the next three batters.

Alex Georgel was pitching for Madison Central.
