Franklin shortstop Avery Archibald had a lead-off walk and scored on a single by Colton Shields to tie the game. Both teams got to the third inning when lightning struck behind home plate and the umpires cleared the field at 7:40pm. The teams agreed the game could not be completed so they would resume at 5pm on Friday. The Franklin Lions resumed the next day and the offense produced well and propelled them to an 8-4.
