Baseline League braces for fantastic finish

Led by Bailey Falter (above) Chino Hills is a top contender for league title.

Just when it looked like Upland was in control of the Baseline League baseball race before the week began. They were 5-0. But then the Highlanders slipped up and lost back-to-back games to Damien, whom most thought would be a top contender but had struggled miserably.

So Upland has come back to the pack and even Damien worked its way back in although the Spartans still have some work to do.

We’re about halfway through and the top spot as well as the other playoff berths are up for grabs.

No doubt the league is stronger than ever before with the addition of Damien and Chino Hills. Glendora, which moved to the Palomares, won it last year and and was on par with the other two but both the two new teams are an upgrade over the other departed team.

So every game the rest of the way should be a battle.

Here are the current standings:

Upland   5-2  13-5
Etiwanda 4-3  12-4
Chino Hills 4-3 11-6
Los Osos 3-4 6-9
Damien 3-4 5-11
Rancho 2-5 12-7

Here is this week’s schedule:
