WPIAL Class AA baseball consolation game

Deer Lakes vs. Shady Side Academy

4 p.m. Tuesday

Washington & Jefferson's Alexandre Stadium

Records: Deer Lakes 17-4, Shady Side Academy 14-8

Winner plays: Wednesday's Blairsville/Mount Union District 6 title game winner Monday at a site and time to be determined

If you go: Take Interstate 79 South to I-70 West exit, get off I-70 at Exit 15, go along outer road at Washington Crown Plaza and go along Washington Federal Way. Alexandre Stadium is located adjacent to Consol Energy Field, home of the Washington Wild Things

Notable: Even though the schools are located less than 10 miles apart, Deer Lakes and Shady Side Academy haven't met in baseball since April 6, 2005, when the Indians won, 3-2. Nonsection games in 2006 and '07 were postponed and never made up. The 4-0 Deer Lakes loss to Quaker Valley was the first time the Lancers had been shut out in more than two years; they were blanked by Burrell, 10-0, on April 15, 2011. This is the first time Deer Lakes has played a WPIAL baseball consolation game, and a win would give Lancers their first PIAA berth ... Shady Side has compiled a 101-56 record in the last six seasons. The Indians are looking for their second straight PIAA playoff trip; they were edged by Mount Union, 2-1, in last season's PIAA opener. Paul McCullough pitched a complete-game victory over Riverside. The Indians pulled off what some are calling the biggest upset of the tournament thus far, a 9-2 victory over defending state champion Riverside on May 13. Shady Side was eliminated by Beaver in the WPIAL semifinals. The Indians are coached by Bob Grandizio Jr.; his assistant is John Cappa, a Riverview High graduate who was inducted into the A-K Valley Hall of Fame on May 18.

'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.
