SAN DIEGO, Ca.-The Ohio and Milwaukee baseball teams battled to a 3-all deadlock before Mother Nature eventually brought the game to a halt in the bottom of the eighth inning Friday at Bob Wren Stadium.
The two teams will complete the affair at 1 p.m. ET Saturday prior to the regularly scheduled doubleheader.
The Panthers jumped out to a 3-0 lead with two runs in the second and one in the third. The Bobcats then responded with one in the fourth and two in the fifth. The fourth-inning run came on a solo homer to right center by left fielder Jensen Painter, while shortstop Wes O'Neill knocked in one in the fifth and center fielder Ethan Newton scored the other on a wild pitch.
Ohio starter Seth Streich went six innings, allowing three runs on six hits to go with five strikeouts and four walks. Milwaukee starter Jordan Guth went five innings and surrendered three runs on six hits with four strikeouts and two walks.
When the game resumes, the Bobcats will be batting in the bottom of the eighth inning with one out and Painter on second, third baseman Dan Ward on first and catcher Trace Voshell at the plate. Milwaukee's Gunnar Eastman, who has shutout the Bobcats for two and one-third innings, is currently the pitcher on the mound.
The game was also delayed 43 minutes in the sixth inning due to a previous rainstorm.
