After pool play teams will be divided up between those teams with no losses, teams with one loss, teams with two losses and so on.  Run differential will be used to separate those teams.  This is the difference between the total number of runs a team scored during the pool play and the runs that same team gave up during pool play.  For example:  Team A and Team B both had 1 loss each.  Team A scored 33 runs and gave up 11 (a +22 run differential).  Team B scored 39 runs and gave up 21 runs (a +18 run differential).  Team A gets the higher seed over Team B.  If two teams have the same number of losses and run differential, then the next tie breaker is least runs allowed. 

Tie breaker #1. Number of losses.  Tie breaker #2. Run differential.  Tie breaker #3. Least runs allowed.  Tie breaker #4. Coin fip.
