Game 1 of Jesuit – Alexandria Quarterfinals Halted by Rain in 5th Inning with Score Tied, 3-3
Jays and Trojans Will Resume Play on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m. at John Ryan Stadium
The weather was ugly all over the metro area on Friday with thunderstorms thrice interrupting the opening game between Jesuit and Alexandria in the state quarterfinals playoffs at John Ryan Stadium. With bolts of lightening cracking in the midst of a third hellacious thunderstorm around 8:30 p.m., players and fans cringed. No one objected when the umpires called the game in the bottom of the fifth inning.
The game will resume on Saturday, May 10 at 2 p.m., precisely where it left off: with the score tied, 3-3, in the bottom of the fifth inning. The Jays had just scored the tying run and Harrison Daste was on third base with Stephen Sigle batting, facing a 1-2 count. The Jays had one out and were threatening. When the Trojans’ pitcher stalled, Blue Jay fans were quick to exercise their vocal chords. Then the skies opened again.
When Game 1 is completed, the teams will take a 45 minute break before beginning Game 2. If Game 3 is necessary, it will most likely be played on Sunday, May 11. Happy Mothers’ Day.
