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.

Breaking the Citrus Belt League softball tie

Citrus Belt League bylaws

If you can read the above bylaws, it outlines how you break a tie in baseball and softball in the Citrus Belt League. In softball,. there will be either a two- or three-way tie for the fourth and final CIF-SS playoff spot, but either way, Redlands wins the tiebreaker.

Only one game remains, and that’s going on now, Citrus Valley vs. REV. As it is right now, Redlands and Cajon each have 7-7 league records tied for fourth, with Citrus Valley at 6-7. A Citrus Valley win over second place REV would make it a 3-way tie for fourth.

Since each of the 3 teams went 1-1 against each other, the next tie breaker is runs allowed vs. the other two teams. Here’s how it breaks down:

Redlands vs. Cajon 6 runs allowed, Redlands vs. Citrus Valley 5 runs allowed. Total: 11 runs allowed

Citrus Valley vs. Redlands 8 runs allowed, Citrus Valley vs. Cajon, 11 runs allowed. Total: 19 runs allowed

Cajon vs. Citrus Valley: 13 runs allowed, Cajon vs. Redlands 11 runs allowed. Total: 24 runs allowed.

So, whether it is a two-way tie or a 3-way tie, Redlands gets the last automatic berth.

Citrus Belt League football wrap-up and final thoughts

The regular season is over, and the fairly unpredictable Citrus Belt League ended Friday without major surprises:
The scores on the final night:
Redlands 28, Carter 15
Cajon 61, Miller 26
Redlands East Valley 53, Yucaipa 17
Citrus Valley 58, Eisenhower 0

So, here are the CBL automatic entries for the playoffs, in order:
1. Cajon (9-1, 6-1)
2. Redlands East Valley (8-2, 6-1)
3. Redlands (7-3, 5-2)
Wild card probability:
4. Yucaipa (7-3, 4-3)
Out:
5. Carter (7-3, 4-3)

When there were some upsets and surprises, I wondered at the end which games would come back to haunt teams?
It seems Carter’s 20-18 loss to Yucaipa will haunt them, keeping them from making the playoffs. On the other hand, it’s the game that gets Yucaipa into the playoffs.
The other is REV’s 37-17 loss to Cajon. Of course Cajon deserved to win that game, but REV obviously didn’t play its best. Against each of the other 3 teams in the playoff hunt in the CBL, REV had a better result, for what that’s worth. Regardless, it’s certainly a game REV would rather have back, but it didn’t keep the Wildcats out of the playoffs.

One thing that struck me from the Redlands-Carter game I was at. Carter turned the ball over 3 times and in each instance, it was a team effort from Redlands. Twice Carter QB Sonny Robison was stripped by one defender and the ball was recovered by another. In the interception, it took one defender to deflect the ball from intended receiver Marcus Strong and a second defender intercepted it. Impressive job by the Terrier defense.

Citrus Belt League playoff scenarios

Here’s the nitty gritty. In the crazy CBL, what happens when each possible combination of game results happens.

The games: Miller (2-7, 1-5) at Cajon (8-1, 5-1)
Redlands East Valley (7-2, 5-1) at Yucaipa (7-2, 4-2)
Redlands (6-3, 4-2) at Carter (7-2, 4-2)
Standings reflect how teams would go into the playoffs. Top 3 are automatic. 4th place has good shot to get wild-card spot. 5th place is out.

Scenario 1:
Cajon wins
REV wins
Redlands wins
1. Cajon (6-1), 2. REV (6-1), 3. Redlands (5-2), 4. Yucaipa (4-3)

Scenario 2:
Cajon wins
REV wins
Redlands loses
1. Cajon (6-1), 2. REV (6-1), 3. Carter (5-2), 4. Redlands (4-3)

Scenario 3:
Cajon wins
REV loses
Redlands wins
1. Cajon (6-1) 2. 3-way tie between REV, Redlands, Yucaipa (5-2) requiring coin flip.

Scenario 4
Cajon wins
REV loses
Redlands loses
1. Cajon (6-1), 2. Yucaipa (5-2), 3. REV (5-2), 4. Carter (5-2)
