SAN BRUNO — Lick-Wilmerding High School baseball may have won the last four league titles, but after a 2-1 win over the Tigers on Friday at Skyline College, Stuart Hall sits alone atop the Bay Counties League West.

Both teams came into the week undefeated in league play, but Stuart Hall (11-4, 6-0) served Lick (10-9, 4-2) its first league loss with a 10-6 win on Tuesday and completed the sweep on Friday.

Games of the day – Lowell vs. Washington baseball: Making up a rainout from earlier in the season, this game is a fitting way to end the AAA regular season. With a win, the Eagles would complete an undefeated league season and secure the top seed in the AAA playoffs. If Lowell wins, the teams would share first place, and a drawing will determine the top seed in the playoffs. Lick-Wilmerding vs. Stuart Hall baseball: There are still two weeks remaining in the BCL West season, but this game could also eventually decide first place. Both teams came into this week undefeated in league play, but Stuart Hall took the first game 10-6 on Tuesday.
