Rockdale, Post 77 knocked out
Rockdale Post 77 opened its elimination game against Fort Pierce, Fla., Post 358 in the Southeast Regional on Friday on a roll.
After an out to start the game, Rockdale loaded the bases and Jake Wright ripped a 2-run double off of Post 358 starting righthanded pitcher Richard Harrell, leaving runners on second and third. Then the rains came. Two separate storms caused a delay of almost 2 ½ hours, and when the game finally resumed, Post 77 out of Conyers, didn’t have the same hop in its step.
With left-hander Tim Farrell on the game once it restarted, Fort Pierce took control of the game and went on to an 8-5 victory at Riley Park. It improved to 24-11 on the season and will take on either South Carolina state champion Florence Post 1 or Virginia
