Crescent City Sports’ extensive live streaming coverage of high school baseball continues this weekend with a pair of games from an increasingly tightening District 9-5A race.

CCS will live stream the St. Augustine-Archbishop Rummel game from Kirsch-Rooney Stadium at 4 p.m. Friday and the Holy Cross-Jesuit game from John Ryan Stadium at 3:30 p.m. Saturday. CCS’ live coverage will begin just prior to first pitch each day.

St. Augustine is one of the hottest teams in the metro area, with a six-game winning streak heading into Friday’s game. The game against Rummel is the first of a two-game series and a rematch of last year’s opening-round playoff series, won by the Purple Knights in three games.

The Holy Cross-Jesuit game is the second of a two-game series, after the Tigers won the opening game of the series 3-2 at home Thursday afternoon. Holy Cross will make up a previously rained out game against Brother Martin Friday afternoon before meeting Jesuit Saturday.

The Blue Jays, at 7-2 in Catholic League play, have a one-game edge in the loss column on three teams: Brother Martin (6-3), St. Augustine (5-3) and Holy Cross (5-3).

Crescent City Sports will feature live streaming of no fewer than 30 high school sporting events throughout the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, in cooperation with Cox Sports Television, CCS will also produce up to 10 more events that will both be televised on CST and streamed on the site.
