SHELBY, N.C. — Five Points Bank fought through a frustrating four innings and took a 3-1 lead on Massachusetts champion Shrewsbury in the fifth before rain forced a suspension of their game Saturday at the American Legion World Series.

The teams resume the seven-inning game at 10 a.m. CDT Sunday.
Nate Reiner delivered a two-run double to the wall to give a 2-1 lead to the team from Omaha Creighton Prep. He scored Lucas Ripa, who had reached on an error, and Owen Richter, who had walked.
After a wild pitch, Reiner scored on Evan Laney’s sacrifice fly.
“Nate came through with a nice big hit when we needed it,” Five Points coach Pat Mooney said.
Mooney watched his team leave nine runners on base in the first four innings, coming up empty with the bases loaded in the third and the fourth.
