HOOVER, Ala. – The 2017 SEC Tournament is in a rain delay as inclement weather has arrived at Regions Field.
The day’s second game, featuring 7-seed Texas A&M against 10-seed Missouri, was paused in the bottom of the sixth inning. Missouri leads, 11-7, behind the strength of three home runs, including a grand slam.
A nearby lightning strike was the cause of for the delay. The game will resume a half-hour after the last recorded lightning strike.
Earlier in the day 11-seed South Carolina upset 6-seed Vanderbilt, 7-4, in 11 innings. The Gamecocks advance to play Kentucky in the first game Wednesday morning at the Hoover Met.
That game already pushed back the day’s events and Aggies-Tigers, even before the rain delay, did so further. The third day of the day, (9) Ole Miss against (8) Auburn, was scheduled to start at 5:30 p.m. local time. The rain delay began at 4:41. The final game of the first round is 12-seeded Georgia against 5- Mississippi State.
Severe weather is forecast for overnight Tuesday into Wednesday and most of the day Wednesday, as well. It’s expected to let up in time for Thursday’s game and not return until Sunday, the day scheduled for the SEC Championship. League officials will announce plans for postponements and potential make-up dates as decisions are made.
Update (6:40): The tarp has been pulled at Regions Field and the teams are hoping for a 7 p.m. ET restart.
Update (6:45): The tarp is back out on the field. No new start time has been announced.
Update (7:02): The tarp has once again been pulled at Regions Field and a restart time has been announced for 7:25 p.m. ET.
