TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE LOGJAMMED BY WEATHER DELAYS
MOUNT PLEASANT — Two winners bracket games that were rained out Monday will be the first games played Tuesday in a revamped Region XIV Baseball Tournament schedule.
The two games — San Jacinto v Navarro and Blinn v Galveston — were scheduled to start at 10 am Tuesday, but wet grounds and runoff prompted yet another delay.
The winners-bracket games finally resumed at 5 pm — and Navarro extended a 1-0 lead over the Gators into a 4-1 advantage after four-and-one-half innings of play. More lightning and thunder interrupted play for another 30 minutes about 6 pm. Another 30-minute delay occurred at the end of 10 innings with the teams tied 6-6.
