Palo Alto Babe Ruth teams still battling for playoff spots

 

The Oaks wrapped up the regular-season title in Palo Alto Babe Ruth baseball action with a 6-5 victory over Guy Plumbing and Heating on Monday night at Baylands Athletic Center.

The Oaks will take their 12-2 record and the top seed into the annual league championship tournament that begins Thursday at Baylands. The Oaks will open the tourney against the No. 4 seed (still to be determined) at 5:30 p.m.

The second game, at 8 p.m., will match the No. 2 and 3 seeds. Ada's Cafe looks to be the No. 2 while Menlo Chevron or Old Pro are in position to claim the No. 3 spot.

Menlo Chevron (7-5) will play Old Pro (7-6) in a key game Tuesday at Baylands starting at 5:30 p.m. A victory will all but lock up third-place for Menlo Chevron, while Old Pro could take that spot with a triumph.

In the second game Tuesday, Ada's Cafe (9-4) will play DFJ (7-6) at 8 p.m. A victory by DFJ will force a two-way tie for third with the winner of the earlier game.

Menlo Chevron also has a game Wednesday, which provides the team a shot at a possible three-way tie for third.
