Tribune Staff Reports
RAYMOND -- The MACCRAY Wolverines kept their powder dry as rain moved in from the west long enough to defeat Tracy-Milroy-Balaton 14-5 in Camden Conference fastpitch on Tuesday.
With lighting streaking through the grey overcast, the game was called after MACCRAY batted in the top of the seventh and declared an official six-inning game. The nightcap will be rescheduled.
