Butte College’s baseball team faced a tough defeat at home against Feather River on April 26.

 The game, held at Butte College’s main campus, saw Feather River take an early lead by scoring in the opening inning. Butte College quickly responded with a run of their own in the second inning.

Both teams looked in good shape, and the game promised to be competitive until the sixth inning. A sudden thunderstorm brought the game to a standstill due to lightning striking nearby. 

As a result, the field had to be covered, and the game was delayed for an extended period of time. At the time of the stoppage, Butte was trailing 5-1.

After the hindrance caused by the weather, Butte struggled to lock back in, and as a result, Feather River put them in the blender. 

Unable to score any more points and unable to create any momentum after the stoppage, the Roadrunners succumbed to a 13-run deficit by the game’s conclusion.

In the end, the weather delay proved too disruptive for the Roadrunners, who, despite a quick initial response in the second inning, could not recover their form once the game resumed.
