Baseball: Plant City-George Jenkins game to resume Saturday

The Plant City-Lakeland Jenkins Class 7A Region 2 quarterfinal will resume Saturday at 3 p.m.
The game will continue in the bottom of the seventh inning with the score tied at 2 with two outs and a runner on first. The game was suspended after Jenkins scored and because the inning wasn’t complete, the umpired reverted to the score of the game at the start of the inning, which Plant City led 2-1.
Cristina Broska, baseball administrator for the FHSAA, cited National Federation of State High School Associations rules, which states “if the home team in its half of the incomplete
inning, scores a run (or runs) which equals or exceeds the opponent’s score, the final score shall be as recorded when the game is called.”
Because Jenkins was the home team, the game was not officially complete.
Here is the rule in its entirety:
If weather or darkness interferes with play so that the game is called (ended) by the umpire, it is a regulation game:
A. if five full innings have been played, or if the home team has scored an equal or greater number of runs in four or four and a fraction turns at bat than the visiting team has scored in five turns at bat; or b. if play has gone beyond five full innings. If the game is called when the teams have not had an equal number of completed turns at bat, the score shall be the same as it was at the end of the last completed inning; except that if the home team in its half of the incomplete inning, scores a run (or runs) which equals or exceeds the opponent’s score, the final score shall be as recorded when the game is called.
