The Wyandotte Bears visited Allen Park on Monday to take on the Jaguars but neither team won the game. That honor went to Mother Nature.

After the Bears jumped out to a 5-0 lead, Allen Park stormed back to take an 8-5 lead when the game was called with one out in the fourth inning. A steady rain began with the first pitch and never let up, forcing the game to be called.

Eleya Montroy got the Bears rolling with a two-run double in the first inning. Some miscues by the Allen Park defense helped lead to a five-run first frame for the visitors.

In her very first varsity at-bat for the Jaguars, freshman Hailey Genaw blasted a pitch over the left-field fence for a two-run shot to cut the lead to 5-2 in the second inning.

Katie Guckian hit a double for Wyandotte in the third inning but was stranded on the bases.

The Jaguars got rolling in the third inning. Kailey Littleton led off with a walk and Hailey Lazarek reached on an error. An RBI fly ball by Hayley Bartholomew cut the deficit to 5-3. After an infield hit by Carlie Magier, the Jags scored on a pass ball to make it 5-4. A walk by Sammi Howell and an infield hit by Genaw loaded the bases for Allen Park.

Riley McCardle delivered a hard hit ball that the Bears’ infield couldn’t handle, allowing two runs to score and giving the hosts a 6-5 lead.

A two-run single by Bartholomew in the fourth made it 8-5.

The game will be picked from this point at a later date.
