How/why Citrus Belt baseball tie is broken different than softball

Thursday, we learned the three-way tie for fourth place in the Citrus Belt League softball standings would be broken by runs allowed among the three teams, since Cajon, Redlands and Citrus Valley all went 1-1 against each other, and Redlands won that tiebreaker.

There will also be a tie in the Citrus Belt League baseball standings, but there are some big differences. It will only be two teams and it will either be a tie for first or second. And the tie will not be broken by runs allowed. Let me explain.

Going into today, Carter, Redlands East Valley and Yucaipa are in a three-way tie for first, Carter plays fourth-place Redlands and REV and Yucaipa play each other. If Carter wins, Carter ties with the REV-Yucaipa winner for first. If Carter loses, Carter ties with the REV-Yucaipa loser for second.

If Carter finishes tied with REV, then Carter wins the tiebreaker, because Carter swept the two games with REV in the opening week of league. If Carter ties with Yucaipa, the teams split head-to-head, so you would go to runs allowed. But each team won a one-run game, Yucaipa by an 8-7 score, Carter by a 2-1 score in 8 innings, So each team allowed 9 runs. The next tiebreaker for baseball or softball is a coin flip, which I’m guessing would be held Friday night.

Victor Valley’s Reggie Lawson is done pitching

Victor Valley senior pitcher/infielder Reggie Lawson’s pitching season is over.

According to a text sent by his coach, A.J. LeDay, Lawson is “done for (the) season.” LeDay didn’t elaborate as to why, but last week said Lawson was day-to-day.

Lawson, who signed with Arizona State, was ranked as the No. 26 draft prospect by Baseball America. According to maxpreps.com, the 6-foot-4, 190-pound right-hander last pitched April 5. He has continued to play infield in the absence of pitching.

This season, Lawson is 3-0 with a 1.20 ERA and 43 strikeouts in 35 innings. He is batting .469 with one home run, 13 runs scored and nine RBIs, but his draft prospects are primarily as a pitcher.

Of course many people speculate as to what the problem is. I don’t know, so I won’t toss out guesses.

Many think Lawson will be a first round pick in early June, but how will this news affect that? Regardless of the reason, scouts will want to know why Lawson stopped pitching. Is it serious or just precautionary? Will they get medical reports (if there are any)? Will he throw a side session just before the draft just to show scouts he’s worthy of a high draft pick?

All that remains to be seen. But it’s possible, if his draft stock falls, that the (temporary) loss for pro baseball will be Arizona State’s gain.

18U Baseball National Team picks Reggie Lawson

Team USA baseball announced its 18-and-under National Team on Wednesday, and Victor Valley High’s Reggie Lawson was one of 20 players across the country to be picked for the team.

The 6-foot-4 Lawson, who will be a senior next season, went 6-4 with a save and a 2.25 ERA in the regular season for the Jackrabbits while striking out 67 batters in 53 innings. He was even more impressive at the plate, batting .461 with four home runs and 26 RBIs in 24 games for Victor Valley, which won the Desert Sky League title before falling to eventual champion Serrano in the second round of the CIF-SS playoffs.

While Lawson is listed as a pitcher, shortstop and third baseman on Victor Valley’s roster from last year, he is listed as only a pitcher on Team USA’s roster. He is one of seven Southern Californians on the 20-man roster. The team is expected to play in the 2015 WBSC U-18 Baseball World Cup in Japan Aug. 28-Sept. 6.
