Baseball: Big games this week
Some early season league matchups this week should provide a clearer picture of where things stand in baseball.
On Wednesday night, Santa Ana Mater Dei plays Orange Lutheran in a Trinity League showdown at Hart Park. Both won their league openers last week.
On Tuesday, North Hollywood Harvard-Westlake sends out Lucas Giolito to take on host Mission Hills Alemany, which was swept in its two-game Mission League series with West Hills Chaminade. The team that can beat Giolito will probably win the league title.
On Wednesday in a nonleague doubleheader, Mission Viejo continues on the road back to promience by facing Lake Forest El Toro at Saddleback College. Mission Viejo was ranked No. 1 in preseason, then lost to Capistrano Valley, Mater Dei and Bishop Amat. I still think the Diablos are going to be heard from this season.
