Steady rain throughout the Metroplex on Friday played havoc with the UIL baseball playoffs.

A triple-header at Dallas Baptist University, which included five Tarrant County teams, was washed out.

Arguably Friday’s most anticipated contest, Game 1 of the Class 5A Region I showdown between Colleyville Heritage and defending 5A champ Grapevine, ended up moving 70 miles west to Brock High School, where Colleyville Heritage beat Grapevine 1-0.

Both sent their aces to the mound with Grapevine’s Connor Neuman (8-4) taking the loss despite throwing a one-hitter.

Heritage winning pitcher Alex Scherff (15-0) struck out eight and scattered three hits.

Heritage got on the board in the second inning with a two-out single from Brooks Bostick that brought home Cameron Ehringer from second.

Game 2 of Colleyville Heritage-Grapevine is tentatively set for 2 p.m. Saturday at Grand Prairie High School.

Back at DBU, Arlington Martin and Southlake Carroll will play Game 2 at 11 a.m. Saturday, with Carroll already up a game.

Martin and Carroll twice took infield practice Friday and waited nearly five hours past their 2 p.m. scheduled start before leaving.

Martin’s graduation ceremony was Friday night. Carroll baseball seniors got their diplomas at Friday morning’s graduation rehearsal at Dragon Stadium.

Mansfield Legacy (26-11) and Frisco Wakeland (37-4) will try for Game 2 at 6 p.m. Saturday at DBU.
