Sometimes, teams suffer from a lack of focus after rain delays.
But when play was suspended in the bottom of the second inning of Wednesday's Maryland District 1 Junior Tournament game with South Mountain, the Valley Junior All-Stars took advantage of the time off to refocus.
"They had some nerves on Wednesday," said Valley manager John Rinehart. "But the rain delay helped. They came back and were on today."
When the game resumed on Thursday at Chestnut Grove Park, Valley came back for a 9-1 victory over South Mountain.
South Mountain took the lead in the top of the second when Dave Wilbraham's RBI single made it 1-0.
South Mountain seemed to be cruising behind the pitching of Gunnar Whipp, who struck out four of the six batters he faced before the rain in the bottom of the second.
