SEDGWICK — After starting the season at 3-1, the Great Bend Braves are now having trouble even finishing a game.
After Tuesday’s scheduling issue with McPherson, the Braves’ doubleheader in Sedgwick was rained out. There was no word on whether the game was to be rescheduled.
The first game made it two batters into the top of the first inning.
With runners on first and second, the Braves were looking to continue their offensive barrage of runs that have them averaging 14 per game, but then the storm came.
“We were in a tornado warning,” Braves head coach Randy Beck said. “We were two batters into the game and a police officer pulled up and told us that a tornado touched down about five miles from us.
“So he rushed all of us over to the high school.”
The Braves are on hiatus until Wednesday, when they host Dodge City for a doubleheader with the first game beginning at 6 p.m.
