On the day I wrote about the competitive virtues of the Baseline League, all four of the league's baseball teams that qualified for the CIF playoffs lost their first-round games. Upland, Alta Loma, Rancho Cucamonga and Los Osos were eliminated from post-season competition on Thursday. Meanwhile, teams from the Sierra League, where Claremont will land in fall 2010, fared better. Chino Hills and Damien both won, while Glendora lost. Charter Oak and South Hills were both scheduled to play their first-round games on Friday.
