Due to Sunday’s rain, the baseball field at Mortimer Jordan was too wet to play on Monday, so the scheduled doubleheader between Jordan and Oneonta had to be moved to Blount County. After the games were over, you can be sure, the Redskins had wished the games had been cancelled instead of moved.
The Blue Devils bats made quick work of the Redskins in game one, 18-6, and then in the nightcap, Jordan got outstanding pitching to complete the sweep, 4-1.
