Orlando Sentinel — J.C. Carnahan Orlando Sentinel

May 15--Heavy rain the past two days forced the postponement of softball and baseball region tournament games scheduled for Tuesday.

A softball district championship rematch between Timber Creek (18-7) and host Oviedo (16-10) was moved to Wednesday at 7 p.m. due to unplayable field conditions. Oviedo won 2-1 in 14 innings two weeks ago after the teams split games during the regular season.

Apopka (25-1) at Dr. Phillips (22-5) was also pushed to Wednesday at 7 p.m. because of field conditions. The winner advances to face either Port Orange Spruce Creek or Jacksonville Mandarin in the Class 9A region finals.

The First Academy's Class 4A baseball region semifinal vs. visiting Tampa Berkeley Prep (19-8) has been rescheduled for Wednesday at 6 p.m. Bryce Fisher is expected to take the mound for TFA (19-8) against a Buccaneers team batting .279 on the season.

In Class 2A, Mount Dora Christian Academy's region semifinal at unbeaten Brevard HEAT (16-0) was moved to Wednesday at 7 p.m. MDCA (17-10) reached the state semifinals in 2018.
