More rain; more postponed games in DRS

More rain meant more postponed games in the Dakota-Rice-Scott league this week.

Four league games were postponed earlier in the week, but the sun dried the fields so games were played Friday and Sunday, but Monday’s Memorial Day deluge resulted in six more postponements. The nine games that were played saw nine different winners, ranging from a 38-hit, 25-run slugfest in which St. Patrick defeated Montgomery 13-12 to a pitcher’s duel that saw Prior Lake defeat Union Hill 2-0.

New Market remains on top of the DRS standings with a 7-0 record, with St. Patrick one game back at 5-0.
