|Baseball: Bi-district playoff set by Scott Farrell||Comment (0)|
HP finally set up its bi-district playoff, and will face a Frisco Wakeland team playing its third game in four days when the series opens Thursday at Wakeland.
The Scots (24-8-1) got two good scouting reports on Wakeland while the Wolverines endured a two-game mini-tournament to secure the final playoff seed out of District 9-4A. Game 1 of the best-of-three series begins at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Wakeland, with Game 2 returning to Scotland Yard at 7:30 p.m. Friday. Game 3, if needed, will be at Grapevine High School, with the time to be announced later. Tickets are $6 for adults and $4 for students.
Wakeland is 21-9 on the season and tied for third in 9-4A. It won a district playoff game over Sherman, 6-2, on Monday to clinch its spot in the postseason. The Wolverines the crushed Frisco Centennial, 15-0, to earn the third-place playoff seed and the right to face HP instead of the state's top-ranked team, Rockwall-Heath, in the bi-district round.
Pitching will be at a premium for Wakeland, which by Friday's Game 2 will have played its fourth game in five days.
The series synopsis:
Game 1 - 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Frisco Wakeland
Game 2 - 7:30 p.m. Friday at HP
Game 3 - TBD at Grapevine
