It’s too soon to tell if the Los Altos High baseball team will play another game this year. But if public concern about coronavirus does wipe out the rest of the season, the Eagles can at least take some solace in knowing they ended on a winning streak.

In its final game before school closed, host Los Altos routed Leland 12-4 Thursday for its fourth win in a row.
