Truckee baseball: Wolverines clinch No. 2 playoff seed

Truckee wrapped up its Northern 3A league schedule with a doubleheader sweep at Yerington this past Friday, winning 17-4 and 3-1.

The Wolverines posted a final league record of 15-3 (19-11 overall) and secured at least the No. 2 playoff seed and homefield advantage in the opening best-of-three postseason series. Truckee has a bye week this week as the remaining six teams finish up their 18-game league seasons.

Spring Creek, which won two of three from Truckee, leads the league with a 13-2 mark entering its final three games. The Spartans need to win two of those three games against Lowry to clinch the top seed.

Fernley is third in the standings at 8-7, followed by Lowry holding on to the fourth and final playoff seed at 6-9. Dayton and Sparks are 5-10 and Yerington 2-13.

The top four teams qualify for the postseason.

If Spring Creek secures the No. 1 seed by winning two of three against Lowry this week, the Wolverines will host the third seed in a best-of-three playoff series on Friday and Saturday, May 15 and 16. The No. 1 seed is scheduled to host the fourth seed the same days.
