Castle Rock baseball led 7-0 in the fourth inning when the Trico 1A League game with Stevenson was called due to rain. The remaining 2 2/3 innings will be played at a later date.
Coach Chad Perdue anticipated that would be Monday in Stevenson.
With four teams qualifying out of the Trico, the rubber match between the teams could prove the difference between making and missing the playoffs. That made the delay all the more frustrating for the Rockets, who finally found their groove.
Erik Titus struck out eight batters through three innings and Ethan Perdue had four RBI.
“In this kind of weather, he was throwing well,” Perdue said of his pitcher. “Keeping the ball down, he let a couple get up but that’s going to happen. He was throwing well.”
