Rain Stops Game 3 In BBL Final Series


Guam – Game 3 in last night Budweiser Baseball league championship series between the Moylan’s ODC Braves and the AK Islanders ended with a bit of controversy, one of which is that the game didn’t end at all.

It was still a championship game and the baseball that was played was what can be expected in a championship series.

The game was tied at one a piece going into the bottom of the fifth inning.  AK would then get 5 runs on the board to gain a 6-1 lead.  But come the top of the sixth inning the defending champs would cut that lead to one run.  AK would keep that one run lead until the eighth inning where the Braves would score four runs in the top of the eighth and go up 9-6 and the point where things got interesting.

The rains would come down and eventually the game would be called off at the bottom of the eighth but according to the managers, the rules state that that’s not the end of the game.  Both AK Manager Willie Brennan and Braves Manager Al Tsutsui agree that according to the rules, the game will be played all the way through, at a later date, before the start of Game 4.

As of news time there’s has been no word whether the game will be continued and if so when, or if the game is considered finished.  As it stands, the game was stopped in the bottom of the eighth inning with 1 out against the Islanders and the Braves are up 9-6.
