BASEBALL Arroyo Grande 6, Burbank 1 : The Bulldogs could manage just four hits Friday in losing their CIF Southern Section Division II first-round game on the road. "They threw a big lefty on us and he did a great job," said Burbank Coach Bob Hart, whose team ended the season at 18-9 after winning a share of the Pacific League title. "But also I don't think we were able to do what I think we're capable of doing on offense. But that happens sometimes. " The lone Burbank run came in the seventh inning.

Jeff Tully PROVIDENCE HIGH -- Members of the Providence High softball team might be feeling a bit elitist as the CIF Southern Section playoffs roll around. Not only is Providence the only team in the city to win a league championship -- in any sport -- during the spring season, but the Pioneer squad is the lone local softball or baseball team to make it to the postseason. The Pioneers open the Division V playoffs at 3:15 p.m. Thursday at Olive Park against San Gabriel Mission.

BURROUGHS HIGH — Coach Bob Davidson has a fine track record of sending his Glendale High boys' tennis teams to the CIF Southern Section playoffs. Since taking over the program in 1998, there was only one season in which the Nitros failed to qualify for the postseason. In contrast, Burroughs has been a stranger to the playoffs, having last earned a berth in 1994. However, fortunes changed for both teams Tuesday. The Indians captured third place in the Pacific League and earned their first postseason appearance in 13 years by defeating Glendale, 10-5, in a league play-in match at Burroughs.

MEMORIAL FIELD — The motivation for Friday’s annual cross-town rivalry clash between Burbank and Burroughs highs was simple. The winner would earn a berth in the CIF Southern Section playoffs, and the loser would see its season come to an end.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Beating your archrival is sweet enough, but add a playoff bid on top of that and you can imagine just how excited the Burroughs High girls' basketball team was Thursday night.

BURBANK - For many of the Burroughs High girls' basketball players, they had never experienced what it's like to get a win in the CIF Southern Section playoffs. That's because coming into Saturday night's Division I-A first-round game, the Indians hadn't posted a postseason win since 2011. That year Burroughs advanced to the quarterfinals, losing to Inglewood. It might have been some playoff jitters that affected Burroughs in its opener at home against Riverside Poly. The Indians were shaky in the first quarter and couldn't seem to get into a rhythm.

OAK PARK — Sometimes the other team is just better. That was the case as the Burroughs High girls' soccer team traveled to Oak Park to take on the undefeated Eagles on Friday in the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division III playoffs. The Indians dropped the contest, 3-0, with two of Oak Park's goals coming on set pieces. Entering the opening playoff contest, the Eagles had scored 80 goals in 22 games, compared to just 36 in 21 games for Burroughs.

With its two top players no longer on the team, the Burroughs High boys' basketball team was undermanned when it traveled to Placentia Valencia on Friday for its CIF Southern Section Division II-AA first-round game.
