Darkness forces Devils, Vikings to play a 4-4 tie

ST. PETERSBURG -- Northeast's Jacob Ralston beat out a wild throw to first base with two outs in the top of the sixth inning Tuesday, allowing the tying run to score against St. Petersburg. And because the game was called due to darkness in the eighth, that would be the final run until the 4-4 game is completed at a later date.

St. Petersburg loaded the bases with no outs in the bottom of the first on singles by Dale Brannon, Vince Grasso and a poorly executed fielder's choice. Adam Reculohe then hit a sharp drive past second base to give the Green Devils a 1-0 lead.

St. Petersburg had its big rally in the fourth.

Courtland Chambers walked and Ryan Lukar entered the game as a pinch-runner. Kyle Stang sacrificed and Chris Huguet singled home Lukar to make it 2-0. Huguet stole second and scored on a hit by Brannon, who advanced to second on the play. Two passed balls later, Brannon crossed the plate with St. Petersburg's final run and a 4-0 lead.

In the top of the sixth, Northeast's Hector LaTorre singled and stole second. Nick Shaw walked and a passed ball put runners on second and third. Kyle Shanahan singled home LaTorre before Kevin Colon smashed a line-drive triple into the rightfield gap, and as the ball rolled to the fence, two runs scored. Ralston then hit his grounder to second that scored Colon to tie the score.
