More wet weather makes batting difficult for Frod
Wind, showers and ultimately another weak batting display, saw App-Frod slip to a seventh defeat in eight matches in the Yorkshire League.
The Steelmen were beaten by 66 runs at Scarborough in one of only two matches to beat the weather.
Scarborough won the toss and elected to bat first – a decision which looked to be the right one as they reached 94 for two in 30 overs.
After various stoppages though, Frod's bowlers began to get on top and eight wickets fell with only another 50 runs added.

Paul Hilton was the pick of the visiting attack, finishing with figures of six for 36, which included an 11-over spell of five for 18. Nick White also grabbed three late wickets in his long stint of of 20.3 overs.
The Steelmen never quite got to grips with a now difficult wicket when it was their turn to take to the crease.
Two of their opening three batsmen, Matt Morland and Kiwi Tony Manning, faced just two balls and Matt Fowler was out for a golden duck as Scarborough duo Ashley Lyth and Andy Simpson dominated.
Between them the pair bowled 26 overs, claiming eight wickets for just 27 runs.
Only a creditable last-wicket stand of 28 from youngsters Jack Forrester (13 not out) and wicket-keeper Alex Grimes, who batted for 12 overs for his 14, saw them reach 78.
The Steelmen are back in action at Brumby Hall on Saturday when they host Castleford (noon).
