DENVER — The Class 4A baseball championship game between defending-champion Valor Christian and Evergreen was suspended Saturday due to weather.

The game is moved to 12 p.m. at Metro State on Sunday.

This will be the third meeting between the two teams this season.

Valor Christian won the first meeting 8-2, then Evergreen won the second 7-5.

The Cougars scored six runs in the bottom of the sixth to beat the Eagles. 

Valor Christian rallied from a 3-0 deficit against Thompson Valley to move into the title game against Evergreen.

Jonathan Boulaphinh broke the game open in the top of the seventh with a two-RBI double to give the Eagles an 8-5 win.

The Eagles were down 5-3 after five innings before Brady Buehler squirted an RBI single into center field.

Then, Thompson Valley catcher Mike Berg tried to back-pick the runner at first and the ball went into right field, tying the game.

In the top of the seventh, Joel Pierce ripped an RBI single that moved a runner to third, setting up Boulaphinh's double.
