Local baseball teams learn CIF matchups

CIF brackets were released on Monday for baseball and Channel League champion Dos Pueblos and Frontier League champion Bishop Diego are both host opening-round CIF baseball games on Thursday.

The Chargers (18-9) take on the winner of a Division 2 wild-card game between Trabuco Hills and Loyola. The Chargers won a playoff game a year ago before falling to eventual CIF champion Mission Viejo. With a win this year, DP could end up playing Pac-7 league champion San Luis Obispo in the second round.


The Cardinals (18-3), seeded No. 3 in Division 6, wait for the winner of a wild-card game between Windward and Frazier Mountain. Bishop enters the playoffs having won 11 straight.

Santa Barbara High (15-10), an at-large team from the Channel League, must travel to Arcadia for a wild-card game on Tuesday. Arcadia is the No. 2 team from the Pacific League and the winner will advance to play at Baseline League champ Alta Loma.

Cate received a home game in the first round of the Division 7 playoff. The Rams host Eastside Christian on Friday.

Second round games are scheduled for Tuesday, May 22 and championship games on June 1 and June 2.
