Not even rainy conditions could deter the Marina and Fountain Valley softball and Fountain Valley and Ocean View baseball teams from getting postseason play underway Tuesday.
Three of the four teams won their CIF Southern Section wild-card games to advance in the playoffs.
Marina hosted Temecula Valley in a CIF Southern Section Division 1 softball game. The Vikings, who finished tied for second in the Sunset League but entered the playoffs as the league's No. 3 team after losing out on a coin flip May 12 to Edison, scored four runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to pull away to a 6-1 win over the Golden Bears.
Freshman pitcher Tera Blanco gave up six hits and a walk and struck out five to run her season record to 16-6. Freshman Keala Cordeiro, who hadn't played too much during the regular season but has had "some great practices," Coach Shelly Luth said, stepped up to go two for three with a run batted in.
