Friday, July 16, 2021 | 10:15 PM
Bushy Run, playing in the Pennsylvania American Legion Baseball Region 6 tournament, had its game suspended Friday in the top of the third inning.
Bushy Run was trailing Brighton Township (Beaver County), 1-0, when heavy thunderstorms stopped the game at Hutchison Field in Hopewell.
The game will resume at 9:45 a.m. Saturday.
In other action, Charleroi got a walk-off 4-3 victory against Hopewell, and Smithfield-Fairchance scored a run in the bottom of the 10th inning to defeat Center-Monaca, 6-5.
Because Baldwin dropped out, Region 6 invited Bushy Run to play.
If Bushy Run wins, it will play Charleroi at 3 p.m. If it loses, Bushy Run will face Hopewell. Smithfield-Fairchance faces Uniontown at 6.
Region 7 set to begin
The Pennsylvania American Legion Region 7 tournament will start Saturday.
Latrobe will face Claysburg at 12:30 p.m. at Lilly, and the other three games will be played in St. Michael, including Young Township vs. Beech Creek (noon) and Yough vs. St. Michael (6 p.m.).
The Region 7 tournament is pool play. The teams are guaranteed three games. The championship game is scheduled for Tuesday.
