Capital Christian High School is facing a do-or-die scenario tonight against Escalon.
Win and the Cougars live to see another day, most likely this weekend, and fight for a chance to play in the Sac-Joaquin Section championships.
Lose the game, which starts at 5 p.m. at Billy Hebert Field in Stockon, and the season is over.
Last Saturday, the Cougars fumbled away momentum by losing 10-3 in the first game of the best-of-three series. Capital Christian jumped out to an early lead in the game, but five errors ultimately doomed the team.
Those mistakes can't happen tonight, said head coach Nelson Randolph.
"We have to go out and play Capital Christian baseball," he said.
