The Modesto Junior College baseball team is heading to the playoffs.

The Pirates received a No. 13 seed when the Northern California junior college pairings were released on Sunday afternoon.

MJC (22-13) will travel to No. 4 Sierra College (21-15) on Friday for the start of a best-of-3 series. All three games will be played on Rocklin, with the last two – the third if necessary – as part of a potential doubleheader on Saturday.

The two teams met three times this season, with Sierra winning all three in April by scores of 4-1, 16-2 and 13-2.

Merced College did not receive a bid.
