NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Perhaps expecting a Pacific League dogfight, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team instead used Friday night to put forth an impressive display of power in every facet of the game.
Buoyed by a dominant start on the mound from Troy Mulcahey and a powerful, yet patient team performance at the plate, the Falcons ran roughshod over visiting Burroughs, making quick work of the Indians to the tune of a 10-0 win in five innings.
"It feels great," said Mulcahey, who went the distance on the mound, striking out 10, and also hit one of three Falcons home runs. "Coach has been psyching us up for this game cause last year they beat us at home.
"I tried to shut them down. The guys in the clubhouse said you shut them down, we'll take care of the rest. That's what they did."
The Falcons (9-1, 4-0) stumbled in a 5-2 loss last year against the Indians, but this season's Burroughs squad (7-3, 2-2) could never recover after a six-run first inning by Crescenta Valley essentially put away the game early.
