 The rain came down to end the Comets' day a little early -- we'll call it an unofficial tie.  Greg Reilley pitched out of a bases-loaded-no-out jam in the second and Dwight Steward launched a home run before the storms washed the game away.

 Too many errors doomed the Comets and even an extra inning could not help the home team earn a win.  Joe Collins’ three hits, and two hits each by Brett Mandel and Tommy Jackson helped the cause, but the painful loss – felt most by E.J. Brady who was lost to an ankle injury – sent the Comets home with nothing to show from their day in the sun.
