The raindrops quit long enough to get some baseball action in at T.J. Burleson Memorial Field on Saturday in Cal Ripken League play.
In the opener, Mitchell County (N.C.) took advantage of 12 walks to score a 13-5 win over Burgie Drug and in game two, Ole Barn (11-1) continued their winning ways with a 14-1 shellacking of the Avoca Dodgers.
Mitchell County took a five run lead in the last of the second on four walks – sandwiched around a pair of strikeouts – with Braydon Keller and Garrison Phillips each driving in two runs with bases loaded hits.
Zeus Ponder pitched a complete game for Mitchell Co. giving up four hits while striking out seven and walking just three.
