Cardinals-Maiden game suspended due to storms

The Lincoln County Cardinals game at Maiden on Sunday night was washed out with the two teams knotted in a 4-4 tie in the fourth inning.

Maiden got on the scoreboard first on J.R. McRee’s RBI single in the bottom of the second inning, then added two more runs in the third on RBIs from Josh Frye and Bryson Ledford.

The Cardinals evened things up in the fourth inning, scoring three times after two outs with nobody aboard.  Brady Drennen followed Seth McRorie’s walk with a base hit, and Kyle Naspinski delivered a two-run double to close the gap to one.  Jordon Easter followed with a run-scoring single, tying the game at 3-3.  

Lincoln County took their first lead of the night on an unearned run in the fourth.  Will Harkey reached on an infield error to start the inning, and moved to second base on Kenny Schild’s sacrifice bunt.  Harkey scored on a two-out RBI single from Brendan Gallagher, putting Post 455 ahead 4-3.

But Maiden answered with a run in the home half of the fourth inning to tie the game before lightning forced the teams off the field.  Approximately 20 minutes into the lightning delay, heavy rain set in for about a half hour, causing the game to be suspended with no date set as of Sunday night to resume the contest.  

Lincoln County is scheduled to be off today and Tuesday, while Maiden is scheduled to host the Gaston Braves tonight at 7 p.m.

The Cardinals lost to first-place Union County 19-0 Saturday night at Marvin Ridge High School in Waxhaw.  Brady Drennen had two hits to lead Post 455, who fell to 6-5 overall and 5-3 in division play.
