Since that was originally the time of the championship game, the final will be 2 p.m. Wednesday at Citizens Bank Park.
Jersey Shore of Ocean and Monmouth Counties earned a spot in the final with Monday's 4-0 semifinal win over defending Carpenter Cup champion Burlington County.
Welsh, a Penn State recruit, who pitched 12/3 scoreless innings before the game was suspended, walked the first batter in the seventh, Matthew Hollenbeck of Hatboro-Horsham. The rain intensified as he took the mound for the start of the inning.
"I was happy when they made the decision because it was tough to grip the ball," Welsh said. "I thought I was throwing well until it started raining."
Welsh says he can bounce back and return to the mound Tuesday. Carpenter Cup rules allow a pitcher to throw as many as three innings in a game.
"I'll be ready," he said. "I still have four outs that I can pitch."
SOL American/Continental got a three-run double from Wissahickon sophomore J.T. Critts in the second inning. Council Rock North junior outfielder Mike Tentilucci of SOL National/Bicentennial went 2 for 3 with a run scored and an RBI before being replaced.
An RBI single by Holy Ghost Prep leftfielder and Maryland recruit Greg Olenski tied the score at 3 in the fourth inning. Later in the inning, Tentilucci broke the tie by scoring on a wild pitch.
In Monday's first semifinal, Jersey Shore continued its mound dominance with a 4-0 win over Burlington County. In three games, Jersey Shore has allowed a total of two runs.
Jersey Shore scored four unearned runs in the seventh inning after Seneca junior righthander Kevin Comer and Rancocas Valley junior righthander Devon Hedgepeth each threw three scoreless innings for Burlington County
Comer is one of the top prospects in the Delaware Valley. Hedgepeth is not as well known and was making his first pitching appearance after playing center field the previous two games.
For the third straight game, lefthander Andrew McGee of Toms River South started and pitched three scoreless innings for Jersey Shore. The Monmouth-bound lefthander has allowed just one hit in nine Carpenter Cup innings. After recording seven strikeouts against Burlington County, he has 17, while issuing just two walks in the three games.
McGee says he is ready to return to the mound, and he will have an extra day of rest.
