OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -The Oklahoma-Clemson game at the College World Series was suspended because of weather Tuesday night with Clemson leading 6-1 going to the top of the sixth inning.
The winners' bracket game will be resumed at 4:30 p.m. EDT Wednesday.
NCAA officials stopped the game because of lightning in the area, and heavy rain followed. Radar indicated eastward-moving storms stretching well west of the Omaha area, and officials decided after a 32-minute delay to suspend the game.
The game will be completed before Wednesday's regularly scheduled elimination game between Florida State and TCU.
The Oklahoma-Clemson winner will have the inside track to win Bracket 2 and advance to next week's best-of-three finals. The loser meets South Carolina on Thursday.
Clemson starter Scott Weismann allowed a run, three hits and two walks over five innings before the interruption.
The Sooners' Bobby Shore allowed three baserunners over the first three innings, then things unraveled on him.
He threw 14 straight balls to start the fourth and walked the bases full. Light-hitting Spencer Kieboom's two-run single put the Tigers up 4-1.
Things got worse for Oklahoma in the fifth. Reliever J.R. Robinson was about to get out of the inning after Kyle Parker's two-out triple, but Brad Miller's easy fly ball glanced off left fielder Max White's glove. White's error allowed Parker to score, and John Hinson followed with his third hit of the game to make it 6-1.
