Canyon Del Oro did their best to wrap-up a top-16 seed and a first round home game in the Division II state baseball playoffs. The Dorados needed a late rally, but beat Palo Verde 8-7 on Monday afternoon.

The Dorados headed into the day ranked No. 16 and the top 16 teams receive their first games at home, though teams in the top-eight receive first round byes. The win improved CDO to 13-4 in regular season games that count towards the postseason rankings.

It was a sloppy game that saw the two teams combine for seven errors, and 16 hits.

The Dorados got on the board early, plating a pair in the bottom of the first, but the Titans countered in the third with a five-run explosion. The Dorados answered with two more in the bottom half of the inning but were down 6-1 heading into the bottom of the fifth.

CDO tied the game in the fifth and each team scored a run in the sixth.

The Dorados held the Titans scoreless in the top of the seventh and won in walk-off fashion with a run in the seventh.

Nick Ames had a double and a home run for the Dorados, and teammate Tristan Peterson also hit a round tripper.

Adam Hoyos got the win for CDO.

The Dorados conclude the regular season with a road game against No. 10 Catalina Foothills. Both teams are in the postseason, but the game could have big seeding implications. The Falcons still have an outside shot at cracking the top-eight and earning a bye.

The CDO softball team beat Palo Verde 19-0 on Monday. They too finish with Catalina Foothills and are trying to keep their top-four ranking.
