PCL Baseball
The Philadelphia Catholic League playoffs are scheduled to begin on Wednesday with first-round action, but a rainy forecast could lead to schedule changes.

The Tide rolled to an 11-3 regular season win over the Raiders in their lone meeting. Joe Ficoturo collected two hits in the win while crossing the plate three times. Patrick Arnold drove in a pair of runs while freshman Hunter Mishock homered and drove in three. The Tide enter the PCL postseason riding a three-game losing streak, while the Raiders come into playing having won three of their last four contests, including a pair of PCL victories over Archbishop Wood and Cardinal O'Hara.

The Lions won the regular season matchup between the two teams, with seniors Noah McMullen and Kevin King allowing just one run on three hits in a 3-1 victory. However, the Lions enter the postseason on a rough streak, having lost 10 of their last 11 games. Meanwhile, the Vikings experienced back-to-back PCL losses to Archbishop Ryan and Neumann-Goretti last week but finished their schedule with a non-conference win over Nueva Esperanza. 
The PCL quarterfinals will begin (weather permitting) on Saturday. La Salle enters as the No. 1 seed, while Neuman-Goretti is the No. 2 seed. Their opponents will be dictated by the results from Wednesday's contests. 
The other two quarterfinal contests include Father Judge (6) at Conwell-Egan (3), and Bonner-Prendergast (5) at Saint Joseph's Prep (4). 
The semifinals will be held at FDP Park on May 22, with the PCL Championship on May 25 at Widener University.
