Flagler Palm Coast led Matanzas 6-1 with two outs and two men on base in the bottom of the fourth inning when rain suspended the game on Friday, March 10, at the Bulldogs' field.
The game was scheduled to be completed Wednesday, March 15, with the two teams slated to meet again two days later on March 17 at Matanzas.
FPC had momentum on its side before the game was stopped. Right-hander Brayden Stuart was pitching well with the Bulldogs' bats staking the senior to a comfortable lead.
After struggling in his first two outings, Stuart allowed just one run on three hits and a walk and struck out five in four innings.
"He looked a lot better," FPC coach Kyle Marsh said.
Carson Flis has a two-run single for FPC.
The Bulldogs were scheduled to finish the game a day after traveling to Sanford for a game against Farragut of Knoxville, Tennessee. Farragut won Tennessee's Class 4A state championship last season.
FPC, 4-4 heading into the Farragut game, is scheduled to return to the Boombah Sports Complex in Sanford next week for a spring break tournament.
Matanzas (2-3) had lost three in a row heading into the game at FPC. The Pirates were held to two runs in each of the losses.
