Rockets and Posse game washed out

Game one of series goes without a winner.
RHEIN - The Rhein Rockets played host to the Neudorf Posse Monday night. 

The game was the first of a modified best-of-three in the Richardson Pioneer Men’s Fastball League finals.   

The Rockets found themselves trailing 2-1 in the middle of the fifth, but were threatening to tie the contest with a man on second base and two outs, and then the rain came. 

Head umpire Ernie Schick called a rain delay, but as lightning flashed in the distance and the rain continue the delay became a call to end the contest. 

Without a full five innings the game was for naught, setting up the teams to meet Wednesday in Neudorf with the game likely to be for the league crown.
