Bad weather Friday forced Sweetwater to move the site and time for Game 2 of its best-of-3 bi-district baseball playoff series with Iowa Park.
The game will be played at Hermleigh instead of Abilene and now starts at 4 p.m. Saturday, according to Sweetwater head coach Chad Copeland, because the heavy rains hitting the area Friday made the field at McMurry University’s Walt Driggers Field too wet for the teams to play. A third game Saturday, if necessary, will also be at Hermleigh and will start about 30 minutes after Game 2 ends.
Sweetwater needs to beat Iowa Park to stay alive after an 11-0 loss in Game 1 on Thursday, in a contest that was played in Iowa Park. The Hawks, ranked No. 3 in Class 4A, out-hit Sweetwater 10-1 in a game that lasted just 4 1/2 innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.
