With storm clouds looming in the west and just nine players in the dugout, the Vandalia Junior American Legion baseball team had to feel fortunate just to take the field Friday in an elimination game at the 23rd District East Division Tournament at Salem.
Vandalia's luck ran out long before those storm clouds emptied onto the field in the middle of the seventh, however, as Post 95 saw its season come to an end with an 8-2 rain-shortened loss to South Central.
The lopsided defeat came to a team that Vandalia beat earlier in the season.
