Biggest baseball surprises

 Greenfield is certainly on this list as it is three wins shy of breaking the single-season school record for wins.
 Then again, that school record occurred last year when the Bruins posted the programs first winning season in their 17 year history, missing the postseason by dropping two of their final three games.
 The expectations this spring were to be a playoff team. At 10-2 in the Mission Trail Athletic League, Greenfield has put themselves in a good position with six games left.
 Plus the Bruins have done something this year that they hadn't done in their previous 17 seasons and that was beating Carmel, not once, but twice this spring.
 Alisal isn't just chasing its first postseason spot in nearly 30 years, but potentially the programs first ever league title.
 The Trojans are half-game in front of Alvarez in the Pacific Division, with two more meetings with their league rivals.
 Alvarez has already matched its win total from last season and won the first meeting with Alisal to move into a tie in the loss column in the Pacific Division.
 The Eagles were in playoff contention last year until falling to Alisal in the season finale. When the two teams meet in the season final this year, it could decide the title.
 I'm not sure anyone saw Salinas in playoff contention this spring after going 4-14 in league play last year, missing the playoffs for the first time in 10 years.
 The Cowboys are 7-5 in the Gabilan Division, with a win over defending champion Palma. If the season ended today, they're playoff bound.
