Four games are on the Orange County baseball schedule Saturday (May 16).
Garden Grove at Santiago, and Rancho Alamitos at La Quinta.Both at 9 a.m.
Those Garden Grove League games are make-up games from Thursday. Both games were underway Thursday when rains forced postponement. Both must start from the beginning (according to the league constitution), which is bad news for Grove, which was leading Santiago, 4-0, and La Quinta, which was leading Rancho, 3-2.
There all kinds of playoff scenarios from those games, too many to recount here. It is complicated.
Also Saturday: JSerra at Santa Margarita at 9 a.m.; Servite at Mater Dei, 9 a.m.
If Mater Dei wins, then Mater Dei gets the Trinity League's third and final playoff berth (JSerra is the league's No. 1 playoff representative, Orange Lutheran is No. 2). If Mater Dei loses and Santa Margarita beats JSerra, then Santa Margarita gets the No. 3 berth as Santa Margarita beat Mater Dei in two of their three league matchups.
Also Saturday, Irvine plays at University at 10 a.m.
