Baseball Report: De La Salle battles Northlake; Jesuit battles John Curtis in key district contest at Miley
Mike Miley Stadium has an excellent doubleheader of baseball set for today.
At 4 p.m., De La Salle battles Northlake Christian.
The Cavaliers (14-5) had a seven-game win streak snapped at Jesuit in an 8-6 loss this past Saturday evening. The Wolverines (13-7) have won four straight games.
De La Salle is unofficially seventh in the updated Division II power ratings while Northlake Christian is seventh in Division III.
John Curtis Christian has won the district championship in the Catholic League all three seasons it has been in 9-5A. That streak is clearly in jeopardy this season.
The two-time defending Division I state champion Patriots, who graduated a ton of talent now playing at the next level, are 9-11 overall and 3-3 in district play, in the hunt but facing an uphill climb.
That climb can start tonight when the Patriots host district leader Jesuit at Mike Miley Stadium at 7 p.m.
The Blue Jays (17-6, 4-0) have won six of their last seven games and have a one game lead on Holy Cross (3-1) and Brother Martin (4-2) in district play.
