Today, three local teams will try to continue their respective runs in the baseball and softball playoffs.

In the Class 4A baseball playoffs, Guyer squares off against Cleburne at 7:30 p.m. at Fort Worth Arlington Heights in a 4A Region I area baseball game. If the Wildcats (17-13) can knock off the District 8-4A champions tonight, the District 5-4A runner-up will face either Arlington Heights or Trophy Club Nelson in the regional quarterfinals.

Cleburne (26-3) finished the season ranked second in 4A by the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association. The Yellow Jackets knocked Guyer out of the playoffs in the same round last season.

Guyer’s softball team also will be looking to exact revenge against the team that knocked the Lady Wildcats out of the 4A playoffs in 2013. Guyer (27-5) squares off against Aledo (25-4) in the 4A Region I quarterfinals. Game 1 of the best-of-three series is slated for 7:30 p.m. at Hurst L.D. Bell. The winner of the series faces Wolfforth Frenship or Canyon Randall in the regional semifinals.

Aledo is currently ranked eighth in 4A by the Texas Girls Coaches Association.

In the Class 3A softball playoffs, Sanger (26-9) faces Frisco Lone Star in the 3A Region II regional quarterfinals. Game 1 of the best-of-three series is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Sanger.

Sanger is the District 9-3A champion, while Lone Star won District 10-3A.

However, there’s a strong chance the weather could disrupt today’s playoff schedule.

As of Wednesday evening, the National Weather Service predicted an 80 percent chance of rain today for the area.
