Rain wreaked havoc over the weekend when the American Legion State Tournament was scheduled to begin at two locations, Stamford and Bristol.
The tournament is back on track but more rain could bring the whole thing to a halt.
Cheshire was able to get its game in on Saturday, losing 5-3 to Milford in Stamford.
Southington won its opener on Sunday, an 8-7 14-inning classic over host Stamford. Ben Nichols hit a sacrifice fly to score Ted Shaw for the game-winner for Post 72.
RCP (Rocky Hill-Cromwell-Portland) started strong with an 8-1 win over Windsor Locks.
Cheshire also came back to record a 3-0 win over Trumbull on Sunday to stay alive in the tournament.
On Monday, Greenwich dealt Southington its first loss, 5-2. Greenwich scored four runs in the first inning and never looked back.
Unionville eliminated Cheshire 8-6 in 13 innings. Cheshire led 4-2 in the 9th inning but Unionville scored two runs to tie the game without a hit. Four walks and a hit batter led to the two runs. Ryan Fuller was awesome pitching in relief, allowing just two hits in five-plus innings.
RCP split a pair of games, losing 4-3 to Montville but coming back for a 4-1 win over Orange. RCP led 3-0 going into the ninth inning but Montville scored four runs to walk off with the win. Logan Lessard took a two-hit shutout into the ninth inning but could not close out the game.
In the 4-1 win, Doug Davenport threw a complete game, allowing seven hits. RCP scored three runs in the fifth inning led by an RBI double by Steve Radziewicz.
