Baseball Rankings: Bishop Amat and Bonita on a roll and will meet Monday night at Mt. SAC


Above: San Dimas back in top ten after winning Chino tournament.

1. Bishop Amat ( 17-2) – Huge 1-0 win over Cypress in opener of National Classic, and now they face arguably the toughest team in the nation in San Jose’s St. Francis. You have to give coach Andy Nieto and his coaching staff credit, who thought they would be ranked so high in so many other state and regional polls.
2. Bonita (15-3) — They’re just so impressive and with 6-8 Arizona State bound Adam McCreery on his way back to join arguably the area’s most productive pitcher in junior Justin Garza, this could get scary. Want numbers? During their 11-game winning streak, ‘Cats have allowed just nine total runs with four shutouts. Bonita can claim No. 1 when they take on Bishop Amat next Monday at Mt. SAC.
3. South Hills (12-4) — No surprise they won the Gladstone tournament, but sort of surprising how easily they did it, hammering Covina 12-0 in the championship game.
4. Glendora (10-5-1) — The Tartans split with Los Osos last week, winning 5-4 after losing 7-0 just a few days earlier. Tartans still leading Baseline, but it’s a packed group near the top.
5. Chino Hills (11-4) — It starts getting real interesting for the Sierra League leaders, who play Damien twice this week, and twice against South Hills next week. If they’re going to win this league, next four league games could decide it.
6. Diamond Bar (10-8) – Ever since losing to Bonita the Brahmas have been on a tear, receiving wonderful pitching from Kenny Mathews and Henry Omana. They’re 5-1 in the Hacienda, giving Bonita no room to breathe until they meet again on April 27.
7. Sierra Vista (14-3) — A very impressive team ERA of 2.10 to go with a team batting average of .333. That is how you get it done.
8. La Puente (10-3) — The Warriors are sitting pretty in the Montview League, but the big games won’t come until the first week in May, when they play back-to-back against Sierra Vista.
9. Covina (12-7) — Hard to tell if the Colts are really good, or the Valle Vista is real ordinary. Considering the Colts’ 12-0 loss to South Hills and their 7-7 non-league record, maybe being 5-0 in the VVL shows how ordinary the VVL is.
10. San Dimas (12-8-1) — Even though Covina leads the VVL, San Dimas is probably the best team. They won the Chino tournament over the weekend, and their pitching is getting better by the week.

    Nothing against Murfett, but do you really think they would play their #3 pitcher for a high profile game like this. If Murfett pithches, great to show his stuff for scouts!!
