Eagle nine tipped; OV, MUHS wait til Weds.

ADDISON COUNTY — Only Mount Abraham saw local high school postseason baseball action on Tuesday, when stormy weather postponed Middlebury’s and Otter Valley’s games.
The Eagles, seeded No. 11 in Division II, dropped a heartbreaker at No. 6 Lake Region, 4-3. Mount Abe used a homer and single from Austin Lafayette andEthan Gendreau’s RBI double to take a 3-2 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning, but the Rangers rallied for a pair of runs and the victory. Sawyer Kamman went the distance on the mound for Mount Abe and struck out six, but took the pitching loss.
The Eagles finished at 4-12, while Lake Region improved to 11-5.
Defending D-II champion OV entered the tournament with a 9-7 mark and the No. 7 seed and was set to host No. 10 Enosburg (6-9) on Tuesday before the storms struck. If the Otters prevailed on Wednesday, they will almost certainly travel to meet No. 2 Mill River on Friday. The 13-3 Minutemen own 11-6 and 8-1 victories over OV this spring and were hosting 1-15 Fair Haven on Wednesday.  
The 7-8 Tigers earned the No. 11 seed in Division I after finishing the regular season with a three-game Metro Conference skid. They were set to face No. 6 Rutland (10-5) on Wednesday after Tuesday’s postponement; the teams did not meet this spring.
A win on Wednesday would mean a 1 p.m. Saturday date on the road at No. 3 Rice (11-4) or at home vs. No. 14 Mt. Anthony (6-10). The Patriots held an early 2-0 lead in a suspended Tuesday game. The Tigers knocked off Rice, 12-4, early this season, but did not face the Patriots.
