WEST POINT, N.Y. - Game Three of the Patriot League Championship Series has been suspended by rain with Army and Holy Cross tied at 4-4 in the top of the seventh inning. The game is tentatively scheduled to resumed on Tuesday at 2 p.m.

Army rallied from a 4-2 deficit to knot the score at 4-all with a pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

Holy Cross got on the scoreboard in the top of the third inning, scoring an unearned run on Mike Ahmed's RBI single.

Army came back with two runs in the bottom of the third to take a 2-1 advantage. Zach Price and Kevin McKague both came through with run-scoring singles to provide the Black Knights' runs.

Holy Cross tied it up at 2-all in the fourth inning when Patrick Puentes homered leading off the frame. The Crusaders then built a 4-2 cushion with single runs in the fifth and sixth innings.

A run-scoring base hit by Harold Earls and an RBI groundout by Cody Murtle made it 4-4 in the bottom of the sixth inning, before the skies opened up. Then, after a 35-minute rain delay, the game was officially suspended.
