    Outright MSL East title for Elk GroveMay 20, 2014 12:00 AM
    Elk Grove cancelled math class and added a division title Tuesday. The Grenadiers won their first Mid-Suburban East baseball crown since 2006, upending host Palatine 8-4 to complete their league schedule. Elk Grove will play at Schaumburg on Friday for the MSL championship. “We are really excited,” Elk Grove coach Terry Beyna said. “It is a great accomplishment for us and the guys and the school.” Beyna and his team might have needed a team of mathematicians to figure out the Grens’ chances had they lost to Palatine. In that case, there would been a three-way tie for the East crown. And deciding the East representative for the title game could have come down to the fourth tiebreaker, involving total runs allowed in conference play. But the victory ended all those permutations.

    Schaumburg’s in, and Elk Grove’s hopefulMay 19, 2014 12:00 AM
    Scoreboard watching was in full swing in Arlington Heights, Elk Grove and Mt. Prospect on Monday. But it was the 2014 version — with emails, texts, Twitter feeds and website-following. When the screens cleared, Schaumburg had lost its game to Elk Grove 6-2 — but the Saxons still won the right to represent the Mid-Suburban League’s West Division in the league championship game, as Hersey beat Barrington 2-1 about 45 minutes later. With Elk Grove’s victory, the Grenadiers (19-9, 10-5) won the opportunity to determine their own destiny in the East Division. Elk Grove plays at Palatine on Tuesday with the opportunity to clinch outright. The Grens lead both Hersey (15-13-1, 10-6) and Prospect (17-11-1, 10-6), which beat Conant 3-2, by a half-game.
