Rain delays Trail’s shot at B.C. title

Rain interrupted play at the B.C. Little League Baseball championship in North Langley on Wednesday.

The Trail All Stars were trailing in the third inning of a 4-3 game against Little Mountain when the skies opened and postponed the game until Thursday. Trail had just scored three runs, and had Lucas Miracle up to the plate with the tying run on third base.

The game was to resume at noon on Thursday but inclement weather once more delayed the starting time, and results were unavailable at press time. Tentatively, Trail’s game against South Vancouver scheduled for Thursday was postponed until today at 11 a.m.

Trail sits at 3-1 in second place behind undefeated South Van, another victory will likely guarantee a spot in the playoffs.

Austin Cox is second in hitting at the tournament with .714 batting average, one homerun, two RBIs and a double, while Reilly McKinnon sits in sixth batting .536, going 5-for-9 in four games. Miracle leads all pitchers in wins, 2, and is second in strikeouts with 12.

The playoffs for the Little League championship have been rescheduled to go on Sunday at noon and 3 p.m. with the finals going Monday at 5 p.m.

The top four teams will advance to the playoff round.
