Lake Monsters punch ticket to championship
Vermont defeats Worcester after two-hour rain delay in game three
BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - The Lake Monsters are headed to the championship.
A two-hour rain delay couldn’t stop Saturday’s game from finishing. Vermont and Worcester headed to their dugouts after the fourth inning - shortly after 7 pm - in a scoreless ballgame, and re-emerged to warm up around 9:20, before ultimately resuming at 9:36.
From there, it was all Monsters. Four runs scored in the fifth inning, all with two outs, propelled Vermont to the championship with a 6-1 win. The Lake Monsters will face Norwich on Sunday at 5pm.
