Neither rain nor … OK, we’ll stop at rain. Leading, 5-4, after four and one half innings of Thursday’s third game in its best-of-five first round state American Legion playoff series against visiting Aiken, Kershaw County thought it had done all that was needed to lock down the set. After all, Post 17 had met the requirements for the contest to be ruled official since it had the lead at the midway mark before torrential rain and winds rendered American Legion Park unplayable.
