The first game of a season-ending series between the Flying Chanclas de San Antonio and Round Rock Hairy Men has been canceled because of heavy rain in Round Rock.

Officials said the game will not be made up, meaning that the series has been reduced to two games.

The teams will play Saturday night in San Antonio at Wolff Stadium and then on Sunday night in Round Rock at Dell Diamond.

Roster moves

Jonathan Tapia, a .356 hitter in 18 games this summer with the Victoria Generals, has joined the Flying Chanclas.

‘Yes, we picked him up last night,’ Chanclas manager John McLaren said in a text.

Tapia is from O’Connor High School and UTSA.

A Chanclas spokesman also said they have added pitchers Jacob Morin from New Braunfels Canyon and Texas Southern University and Nico O’Donnell from Churchill and Fresno State. O’Donnell (6-4, 220) spent his first two years out of high school at Texas.

The two will replace departing John Gaddis and Lance Lusk, he said.

Playoffs looming

Two teams from the South Division of the TCL will make the playoffs.

Round Rock (16-11) and Brazos Valley (16-12) are in the best position to get to the postseason, with the Chanclas (14-12) having an outside shot.

Brazos Valley, playing at home in Bryan, defeated the Victoria Generals 12-4 in the first game of its season-closing series Friday night.
