The rains came to the West Orange County area over the past two weeks and scrambled the schedules for area high school baseball and softball teams.

Now that Mother Nature has let up and provided some sunshine, games are back underway although athletic directors and coaches are poring over iPads and clipboards to figure out just how to patch together their game dates for the rest of the season.

Friday’s action saw a mix of league and tournament games.

Pacifica’s baseball team improved its record to 11-2 with a 3-1 win over Marshall High of Los Angeles. The Mariners will begin Empire League play on Tuesday when they host Valencia (2-8).

Also on Friday, the Pacifica softball team (9-3) thumped El Modena 12-1 in a non-league contest. The M’s rolled up a 9-1 lead before the mercy rule was invoked after five innings.

The Mariners will start EL play on Thursday, March 30 hosting Crean Lutheran (9-2-1).

Garden Grove League baseball action saw Loara defeat La Quinta 15-0 to remain at the top of the GGL race at 3-0 (4-4 overall). The Aztecs are 1-3 and 3-7.

In the Wave League, Edison opened baseball conference play with a 1-0 win over Marina. The Chargers are 6-5 overall and the Vikings are 5-9.
