Baseball: City Section pairings could become very clear

May 9, 2013 |  9:57 am

If Cleveland knocks off Birmingham in a 6:30 p.m. West Valley League finale on Thursday night, Saturday's City Section Division I seeding meeting should go pretty smoothly.

Cleveland would be the No. 1 seed, with San Fernando No. 2, Chatsworth No. 3 and Banning No. 4. Then things will get interesting.

Narbonne and Granada Hills have been two of the hottest teams of late, but Granada Hills Kennedy owns a win over Granada Hills. If Granada Hills sweeps El Camino Real this week, the Highlanders will be in the top six seeds and enter the playoffs with a seven-game winning streak and lots of pitching.

Wild-card games are set for May 15 and the first round isn't until May 22. The championship game is June 1 at Dodger Stadium.

That's a lot of time off, and it will be interesting to see how coaches try to keep their teams in top form.
