Tattnall Square and Deerfield-Windsor can’t seem to catch a break.
Since trying to get their GISA Class AAA Final Four series underway Friday, the Trojans and the Knights have had games postponed, suspended and delayed.
After more rain Tuesday, they can add another postponement to the list.
Tattnall head coach Joey Hiller told The Telegraph that Tuesday’s deciding Game 3 was rained out before the Trojans even reached Albany. The game has been rescheduled for 4 p.m. today.
Today’s weather forecast doesn’t look much better. According to Weather.com, there is a 50 percent chance of rain in Albany with scattered thunderstorms expected.
The two teams finally got a full game in, and then some, Monday afternoon. The series was scheduled to start Friday but was postponed due to rain. They got two-and-a-half innings of play in Saturday before the game was suspended because of inclement weather. Monday provided the only window of luck the two teams have had in the Final Four.
Picking up where they left off Saturday, with Tattnall holding a 2-0 lead over Deerfield, the Knights found a way to come back and take a one-game advantage with a 4-3 win over the Trojans. Tattnall pitcher DeAndre Smelter gave up a two-strike single to center field in the seventh inning to allow the Knights to take the win.
Tattnall bounced back in the second game with a 3-2 win that forced the rubber match now scheduled for today. Jordan Brooks picked up the win on the mound for the Trojans while Smelter went 2-for-3 with an RBI from the plate.
