By By Brandon Parker
After games on Saturday, May 19
The playoffs get started this week and some teams enter on a hot streak (Grand Street Campus, Cardozo) while others stumbled into the postseason (St. Joseph-by-the-Sea, George Washington). What effect this has on their playoff performance remains to be seen.
Here are this week's rankings (last week's rankings in parentheses):
1. Grand Street Campus (Brooklyn) 15-1 (1) Heads into PSAL Class A playoffs on hot streak and led by Ernesto Lopez, who led the league with 26 RBIs, five HRs and a .610 batting average.
2. Tottenville (Staten Island) 22-3 (2) Won 28th straight PSAL Staten Island A division crown and open playoffs Wednesday against Riverdale or Kingsbridge.
3. Cardozo (Queens) 21-2 (8) Judges won two more games to sweep competition in Queens A East and earn top seed in PSAL Class A playoffs.
