The bats were hot for Olympus on Friday afternoon, but the Titans will have to wait another day to try to officially seize control of the Region 6 race.

With Olympus leading Murray 10-1 after three innings, the game was suspended because of muddy conditions after a steady drizzle throughout the start of the game.

The teams may try to continue the game next Thursday — the only possible open date — or would Murray may forfeit to save its arms for a big Friday game with Park City?

The Olympus-Murray game was one of dozens of baseball and softball games suspended or canceled on Friday afternoon because of a storm that moved in right around when most games were beginning.

Many were able to finish, but Olympus couldn’t claim its likely win.

The two teams split the series leading into Friday’s grudge match. Olympus owns a one-game lead over Murray in the standings, and assuming its nine-run lead holds up once the game becomes it official, it will have a two-game cushion with seven games remaining.

Jacob Faust hit a pair of home runs with six RBIs in Friday’s game, giving him five dingers so far in the three-game series with Murray.

He recorded two home runs and five RBIs in Tuesday’s 9-6 loss to Murray, and then hit a walk-off homer with four RBIs in Wednesday’s 13-3 win.

For the series he has five homers with 15 RBIs, with possible at-bats still remaining.

Once the stats become official, Faust will sit third in the state this spring with eight home runs and first in RBIs with 32. He’s played seven fewer games than the home run leader as well.
