First, the rain fell on the Clanton fields then the hits fell on the Clanton team.

Auburn Orange defeated the host team, 23-3, last night in a Dixie Youth Baseball state tournament game that was delayed more than four hours because of heavy rains.

The loss eliminates Clanton from the tournament.

Bright spots in the loss were Colby Ramsey, who had two hits and two RBI, and Brandon Chappell, who had one hit and one RBI.
