WPIAL Baseball/Softball Playoff Recaps for Wednesday 5/13

The opening round for both the District 7 baseball and softball postseason took a chilly turn Wednesday. Days after the mercury was knocking on the door of 90 degrees, temps barely got into the 50's, giving the diamond action a late March, early April feel. That didn't prevent some teams from taking care of business while earning a spot in the district Quarterfinals next week in baseball AAAA and AA along with softball AAA and AA. Here are recaps from the games heard live and archived Wednesday here on the MSA Sports Network.

Scholastic Notebook

You know the saying. April showers bring May flowers and Seneca Valley blooms.

OK, so the last few words aren’t part of the saying. But in WPIAL baseball lately, it fits. If Reggie Jackson used to be Mr. October, then Seneca Valley coach Eric Semega is Mr. May.

Seneca Valley has made it to the WPIAL Class AAAA title game four years in a row. The Raiders are believed to be the first team in almost 100 years to make the championship four consecutive seasons. Allegheny High School won six consecutive titles from 1917-22.

The WPIAL baseball playoffs start next week, and a natural question is will be a drive for five for Seneca Valley?

MSA Sports Top Ten - WPIAL Baseball Playoff Teams

Every Monday during the regular season, MSA Sports ranks the Top 10 WPIAL baseball teams in each classification. For our final rankings this spring though, we will slot all 61 district baseball postseason bound squads with 16 in AAA, and 15 each in AAAA, AA and A. As is the case in all of our playoff rankings, its more of a seeding than true ranking as we follow the WPIAL rules in an effort to avoid teams from the same section playing each other.

There will be ONE First Round bye in Quad-A, Double-A and in Single-A and a full, clean bracket of 16 in Triple-A.

To figure out our First Round projected matchups, use the bracket formula of 1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, 3 vs 14, 4 vs 12, 5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, 7 vs 10 and 8 vs 9.
