With the CIF Southern Section postseason just a few weeks away, the Nordhoff baseball team (10-8-1, 5-3) is looking to make one final push to solidify their spot in the playoffs. Last week, the Rangers split their season series with the Malibu Sharks and both games were thrillers that came down to the final at-bats.
Last Wednesday, the Rangers traveled to Malibu to take on the Sharks and the home team was able to squeak out a 2-1 victory in extra innings. NHS head coach Glen Pinkard said, “It was a tough loss, but I thought we played well and were able to bounce back with a win on Friday.”
