District 10

Three tied for first in baseball, Ross takes tie-breaker

GUELPH – Not quite break-out-the-calculators time, but close.

Three of the four teams in the District 10 high school baseball league finished in a tie for first place after the league’s regular season came to an end with a pair of games at Pearson Park Monday.

The Ross Royals blanked the Guelph CVI Green Gaels 11-0 and the St. James Lions got by the Centennial Spartans 7-4.

Those results left Ross, St. James and Centennial all at 2-1-0 and GCVI at 0-3-0.

League officials had to go down the list of tie-breakers to decide the final order of the top three. First tie-breaker was the results involving the tied teams, but that didn’t solve anything as they were all 1-1-0 against each other.

Next tie-breaker did the trick as it was the runs allowed during the regular season. With that, Ross finished first with seven runs allowed, St. James second with nine and Centennial third with 12.

All four league teams are to return to Pearson Park Monday for the semifinals that are scheduled for 2 p.m. and it’ll be the same match-ups as the season finale twinbill as Ross is to host GCVI on one diamond and St. James is to host Centennial on the other.

Semifinal victors are to be back at the park June 8 for the championship match that is slated to begin at 3 p.m.
