Rain caused the fourth game of the American Legion District Tournament to be halted in the fourth inning with Post 80 winning by a score of 8-3.

The game will be resumed today, weather permitting.

Post 80 fell behind Millbrook 3-0 in the bottom of the first inning.

Jake Anderson started the rally for Millbrook with a walk. Ryan Jenkins followed with a single. Cory Chapman kept the rally going by drawing another walk to load the bases.

Neal Patterson reached base on an RBI-single, but was retired at second when Cole Sightler reached on a fielder's choice.

Chaz Maloy came up with a big hit to keep Post 80's offense rolling.

Maloy hit a towering shot to left field just as a gust of wind began to push dark clouds over the diamond. Maloy's ball finally came down, but when it hit the ground it was out of the reach of the Millbrook outfielder for a three-run home run.
