The Gateways – who came out of the weekend with a record of two wins, two losses and a tie – were to have played host to the Hammonds Plains A’s Saturday, June 24, but those two games were rained out.

In the day’s second game with Prospect – a 7-7 tie – the Gateways’ Skyler Baxter doubled and singled and scored two runs and teammate Dylan d’Entremont singled twice and scored a run.

The standings after June 24-25 play had undefeated Prospect leading the league with a record of 5-0-1, followed by the Eastern Passage Pirates (5-1-0) and the New Waterford Dodgers (2-0-0).

The Gateways were next (2-2-1), putting them in the middle of the standings in the seven-team league.
