Div. 4: No. 2 Bishop Amat, No. 3 Torrance

The best wild-card games in south Los Angeles County on Tuesday:

Division 1: Capistrano Valley (19-11) at Long Beach Poly (23-7). This has the potential to get wild, depending on which way the wind is blowing Tuesday. Capistrano Valley has eight regulars hitting over .330, led by junior Cristian Salina's .453. The Jackrabbits reached double figures in runs six times this season. Poly finished the regular season by winning 13 of 15. Winner of this one plays at Esperanza on Friday.

Division 2: Rancho Verde (13-13-1) at South Hills (20-4). The big objective for the Huskies: Forget about not receiving a bye into the first round. South Hills finished tied atop the Sierra League standings, won 20 of its 24 games and, somehow, has a wild-card game to play. Luis Inzunza (6-5, 2.14) figures to get the nod for Rancho Verde. Winner of this one plays at Arroyo Grande on Thursday.

Division 3: Ocean View (16-10) at Diamond Bar (15-11). Ocean View's triple threat of Timmy Robinson (.462), Blake Walker (.410) and Robert Fogarty (.392) will likely have the difficult task of facing Diamond Bar lefty Kenny Mathews (5-4, 1.24), who is committed to Cal State Fullerton. Winner of this one plays at Colton on Friday.

Division 4: Grace Brethren (11-15-1) at Northview (12-13). The Vikings won their last two games to secure third place in the Valle Vista League. Grace Brethren has lost seven of its last 11. Winner of this one plays at Sorona on Thursday.

Division 5: El Monte (9-10) at Gladstone (16-6). The Gladiators' late, furious charge wasn't enough to bag them the Montview League crown, but a six-game winning streak heading into the postseason is a bright side. Casey Lopez (.380) and Daniel Farfan (4-3, 2.35) are El Monte's top hitter and pitcher, respectively. Winner of this one plays at Nipomo on Friday.

On Wednesday, we'll preview of the top first-round games.
