Rain forces postponement of a number of prep playoff games

Inclement weather has led to postponement and rescheduling of a number of Sac-Joaquin Section softball and baseball playoff games.

Here's a brief rundown from Will DeBoard, the section's director of communications.

• As of noon, six of today's 10 outbracket softball games have been postponed. D-II Kennedy at Del Campo and D-III Benicia at Bear River and Colfax at Vanden have been moved to Wednesday. The D-I Franklin-Elk Grove at St. Francis game will be Thursday.

• The Cordova-Rodriguez outbracket baseball game (the lone game rained out Monday) will be 4 p.m. on Thursday.

• Today's D-V baseball games scheduled for Zupo Field (Capital Christian vs. Ripon, 4 p.m. and Hilmar-Summerville, 7 p.m.) have been moved to Friday at Galt Community Park, same times.

• The four D-III (Whitney-Yuba City; Lincoln-Cordova/Rodriguez; Rio Americano/Colfax; Benicia-Bear River) first-round baseball games scheduled for McAuliffe Fields Wednesday have been moved to Friday at McAuliffe.

• As of noon, no changes to the 26 girls soccer games, the four boys volleyball semifinals or the DIV/V track and field trials at Modesto Junior College.
Barring lightning, DeBoard anticipates most, if not all, of those events will be be played.
