There are 2 games left in the regular season and three teams still alive for 1 playoff spot in the California League’s South Division.
The Quakes entered Saturday leading Lake Elsinore by 1 game, but lost 10-7 at Bakersfield.
But that loss wasn’t a huge blow as Lake Elsinore lost to the 66ers, 9-1.
Lake Elsinore remains 1 back. And the 66ers are still alive, just 2 games back. If the 66ers win their final 2 and the Quakes lose their final 2, there would be a one-game playoff on Tuesday.
The Quakes and Lake Elsinore could also finish in a tie for a playoff spot. Should that happen, the Quakes would host the game on Tuesday based on the head-to-head regular-season record, won by the Quakes, 17-10.
However, if the Quakes and 66ers finish tied, that game would be in San Bernardino on Tuesday, because the 66ers own an 18-7 head-to-head edge on the Quakes.
