They’ll have to wait at least one more day.

The Mattituck baseball team’s Class B playoff game against Southampton has been postponed for the second time. The county final game will now be 4 p.m. Wednesday.

The game was originally scheduled for Saturday. It was then pushed back to today before rain forced it to be postponed again.

Southampton can clinch the championship with a win. The Tuckers, who lost once in the double elimination tournament, need to beat Southampton twice. A winner-take-all game would be played Thursday. Both games would be at Southampton.

The Tuckers have bounced back from a first-round loss to Center Moriches to win twice and extend their season. They defeated Center Moriches in a rematch Wednesday, 11-7.

The Tuckers played Southampton in a three-game series to close out the regular season and were swept.
