With a shaky forecast this past Tuesday and Wednesday, all of the WPIAL baseball first-round games are in the books … except one.

The much-anticipated No. 8 vs. No. 9 matchup in Class 5A between defending district and state champion Shaler and South Fayette got started Wednesday night, but didn’t get far.

In the bottom of the first inning, the skies opened up and the game was initially delayed then suspended because of a passing thunderstorm.

The game will resume at 6 p.m. Thursday at Gateway on Trib HSSN.

In the top of the first inning with two outs against Shaler starter Colby Weber, Gino Satira, Ethan Rose and Adam Caye singled. The Caye base hit scored Satira to put the Lions up, 1-0.

In the bottom of the first, Brady McGuire and Chase Beran singled off of Rose before lightning in the distance forced both teams off the field. Heavy rain started shortly thereafter and the game was suspended.

The two teams pick up where they left off and we will resume our broadcast on Trib HSSN.
