BATH TOWNSHIP — It was an umpires’ decision that virtually nobody argued about.

After completing three innings of a key Western Buckeye League baseball game between Wapakoneta and Bath tied at 3-3, the umpires decided to call the game due to the wet condition of the field.

The Wildcats scored a single run in the first inning plus a pair of runs the second to account for their three runs. Jordan Berens, Cam Clark and Kaden Sullivan each had hits to drive in the three Bath runs.

The Redskins countered with a run in the second and two more in the third to tie the game. Manny Vorhees, Nate Schroer, and Wyatt Moyler had the runs batted in for Wapakoneta.

Cam Clark started on the mound and went all three innings for Bath while Wapakoneta had Gage Schenk complete two innings of work before he was relieved by Rob Laney.

The three innings that were completed will count and the game will begin in the fourth inning at a date to be determined.
