One night after heavy rains in the Georgetown area forced the postponement of Tuesday’s game two of the state American Legion second round playoff series between Kershaw County and host Georgetown, weather problems stopped the following evening’s game dead in its tracks.On Wednesday night, with the visitors leading 2-0 in the top of the third with runners on the corners with no outs and Gunner Smith at the plate with a 2-0 count, the rain became too heavy as the umpires sent both teams to their respective dugouts. When the precipitation continued and made the field unplayable, the contest was suspended.Kershaw County Post 17, which won Monday night’s opening game, 7-5, was to have returned to Georgetown on Thursday night to complete game two. Game three in the best-of-five series is slated for tonight at 7 p.m. at American Legion Park in Camden.
