A handful of Home Talent League baseball games were rained out in the South Central portion of the state. Among those was matchup between Division leaders Fort Atkinson and Utica.
Fort Atkinson, who leads the East Division of the Southeast Section, was scheduled to travel to Utica, the Southeast Section West Division leaders. However, wet weather Saturday night left Utica Park’s field unplayable. A make-up date has yet to be scheduled.
Jefferson was scheduled to travel to Stoughton, but that too was called off. Jefferson was the Consolation champion during the 30th Annual Fort Atkinson Generals’ Tournament and the Merchants took first place. Their game will be made up at a later time.
McFarland and Whitewater as well as Orfordville and Lake Mills were also rained out in the Southeast Section.
Albion blanked Deerfield, 10-0, to get back to .500 in the standings while Evansville held off Cambridge, 2-1.
In the Eastern Section, only one game was able to be played.
With an opportunity to stay in first place, Cottage Grove lost a high scoring affair to Rio. The Firemen topped Cottage Grove, 12-7, bumping CG down to 7-2 – half a game back of DeForest and Sun Prairie.
As the weather dries up, many of these make up games will have strong affects on the final standings.
