BRISTOL, Conn. — The schedule called for two championship games to be played on Saturday at A. Bartlett Giamatti Little League Training Center, but inclement weather would not even allow for one.

Following more than five hours of rain delays, Coventry and Pittsfield, Mass. will have to decide which team represents the New England Region at 10 a.m. Sunday. The Mid-Atlantic battle between New York and Maryland will follow at 1 p.m.

While Massachusetts (3-0) has been off since Wednesday after earning a spot in the title game, Coventry (3-1) was flying high coming in following a thrilling come-from-behind 6-5 win over New Hampshire in Friday’s elimination game.

The victory allows Lou Simon’s squad a rematch with the only team to beat them in the tournament. The Massachusetts champions cooled the red-hot Rhode Island squad with a 10-1 victory, using big hits, defense and stellar pitching to get the job done.

“Their pitching and their hitting,” Simon said, quickly summing up his concerns with the opponent.

The championship game won’t be any easier a test for Coventry even with the extra day off. Pittsfield ace Evan Blake will be on the bump and the defense behind him has been exceptional, with five double plays in three games, including three against Coventry.

In the opener against New Hampshire, Blake tossed five innings of scoreless ball with three walks and 10 strikeouts. His bat has been even more impressive. He has gone 8-for-9 (.889 batting average) with five doubles, two homers and six RBI.

In the first game with Coventry, Blake hit a mammoth homer over the center-field scoreboard and was 3-for-3 with two RBI.

“I don’t think it was 400 feet, but he hit a pretty good shot,” Simon said. “He’s been on fire. I don’t think he’s made an out the entire tournament — (he actually made just one) — so we will have to make sure we pitch carefully to him.”

Coventry ace Tommy Turner won’t be available to pitch in the final and neither will Jake Mather, so Logan Lama is getting the nod.

“I’m sure Lama will be up to the task,” Simon added. “The rest of their order, top to bottom, is very good hitters — very good fastball hitters and very good at doing their job.

“They are a very disciplined, well coached team … and we are looking forward to (playing them again).”

After outscoring its first two opponents, 20-0, Coventry’s offense struggled for the next 11 innings before breaking out for six runs in the bottom of the sixth against New Hampshire.

The top of the order has been the most dangerous, with second-hitter Turner batting .667 with five runs and five RBI. Clean-up hitter Lama has a team-high seven RBI with a .500 average and Mather is hitting .615 with three RBI and five runs out of the 3-hole.

Saturday’s championship game never stood a chance with rain throwing the schedule off. At 11 a.m. Little League officials decided to delay the 1 p.m. start. The teams took the field around 1:30 p.m. with hopes of a 3 p.m. start, but more rain in the area wiped out those plans. The game was called off just after 4 p.m.

Coventry is looking to become the 10th team from Rhode Island to reach the Little League World Series and the first since 2016 (Warwick North). It would be the fourth time in five years a Rhode Island team reached Williamsport, Pa., if it advances.
