Rain interrupts games

CUMBERLAND — SHORT GAP, W.Va. — Rain played havoc with two region championship games on Thursday. Both have been rescheduled for today.

At Frankfort, Bridgeport led Frankfort 7-5 with no outs and runners on first and second when the skies opened, flooding the field and causing fans to run for cover. The thunderstorm, which included marble-sized hail, forced the game to be suspended.

It is scheduled to be resumed today, weather and field conditions permitting, at 4:30, at Frankfort.

Thane Cutter had three singles and Tyler Conley and Colten Dorsey two before the rain came for Frankfort (17-14), which had scored three runs in the fifth to cut a 7-2 deficit to 7-5.

Greg Smith, Cullin Cutright and Tyler Skidmore had three hits for Bridgeport (29-6).

The winner advances to the Class AA state tournament.

Rain also washed out the East Hardy at Notre Dame Class A, Region II title game. It will be played today at 3 p.m.

Hedgesville    4

Hampshire    3

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. — Daniel Heliene and Stephen Hite both belted solo home runs to lead Hedgesville to the West Virginia Class AAA, Region II championship with a win over Hampshire at Hedgesville on Thursday.
