BASKING RIDGE, NJ - The rain Monday forced postponement of Ridge's state tournament baseball and softball games until Tuesday.

The Ridge baseball team, seeded 14th, will open state tournament play on the road against third-seeded Bayonne (17-10) at 4:30 p.m. in Section 2, Group 4. Ridge (10-13) is likely to send right-hander James Crowley (5-1) to the mound, although Kevin Walker has also been pitching well for the Red Devils.

The Ridge softball team will host North Hunterdon at 4 p.m. in the second round of Section 2, Group 4 play. Jordan Richman and Sophia Berger each hit home runs when Ridge (11-11) defeated Woodbridge in the first round last week.

The Ridge girls lacrosse team will be on the road to play Ridgewood in the Section 1, Group 4 semifinals at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
