Lincoln Southwest holds a 4-0 lead over Lincoln Southeast, but the Silver Hawks haven't won yet.

The final game of the night at the Class A state baseball tournament was suspended by rain. The game will resume in the bottom of the fifth, probably Monday before the second-round winners bracket games begin at 4 p.m.

Southwest jumped to the early lead in the first on a three-run homer to left by Chase Gobel. That also brought home Jared Jesske and Isaiah Peterson, who had belted consecutive two-out singles.

The Silver Hawks made it 4-0 in the fourth when Connor Sudik singled, was sacrificed to second by Max McGuire and scored on a fielder's choice by Mitch Conklin. Southeast starter Noah Kulhanek got out of the inning when Cal White lined into a double play.

Southwest's Logan Foster allowed three hits and struck out six in five innings. The Knights' best threat came in the third when they loaded the bases with one out but Foster got Kulhanek to bounce into a 1-2-3 double play.

The Silver Hawks were preparing to bat in the bottom of the fifth when the umpires waved the players off the field. The decision to suspend play was made by Storm Chasers officials, and the rain started falling shortly after.

The winner of Saturday's suspended game will play Monday at 7 p.m. at Werner Park against Millard South. The loser will play Millard West in an elimination game Monday at 7 p.m. at Fricke Field.
