The Marceline Tigers' baseball team got perfect weather on Monday afternoon, and the program's first-ever game went on as scheduled.
Marceline fell to Schuyler County, 13-3, in a home game that ended after the fifth inning due to run rule.
Schuyler posted four runs in the fourth inning and six in the fifth.
"It's at least good to finally get on the field and play a game," Marceline coach Jordan Aulbur. "We haven't really been on the dirt at all, and the field was perfect."
Marceline did its most damage in the bottom of the third, scoring two runs to bring the game back to 3-2.
Tiger senior Devon Skinner started the game before being pulled after the second batter of the fifth inning. Nathan Sayre finished the game, inheriting a pair of Schuyler County baserunners.
Cody Amen was Schuyler's winning pitcher.
"We made a couple errors and couldn't throw a strike at times, and we left a lot of guys on the bases," Aulbur said. "There are a lot of opportunities for us to excel, and regardless, I'm proud of our guys because there are tons of things we can build on out of this."
Marceline hosts Harrisburg on Thursday at 5 p.m. That game was originally scheduled to be played in Harrisburg.
