El Rancho clinches third place, playoff berth after slow start

El Rancho’s baseball team continued its remarkable season turn-around Wednesday and clinched third place in the Del Rio League with a 4-3 victory over Whittier.
The Dons improved to 7-7 in the DRL after a 1-6 start to the league campaign. They’ve won five consecutive Del Rio games and six of their last seven. El Rancho is the only team to beat league champion Cal this season.
After three consecutive shutout losses to open league play, the Dons beat Pioneer, then lost another three in a row by a combined score of 26-9.
El Rancho, which reached the CIF-SS Division 4 final last season after finishing third, will learn of its first-round playoff opponent when the pairings are released Monday.
