From staff reports
GRAY - Numerous Maine high school baseball games are postponed or end early because of the spring weather. Usually the reason is rain, sometimes fog, sometimes even snow.
Second baseman Dan Burke of Freeport fires to first Monday after forcing Alex Mercurio of York in the third inning. The Falcons were unable to complete the double play. York won the Western Maine Conference game, 5-3.

The Yarmouth at Gray-New Gloucester game ended after five innings Monday because of another reason.
