NORTHEAST GLENDALE — With the way things have been going lately for the Glendale Angelenos, it would be a surprise if they didn't steal a base or hit a home run.
That's precisely the way the Angelenos, a first-year program from the California Collegiate League, like it. A mixture of power and stellar base running have the Angelenos cohesive and red hot.
That proved to be the case Friday night, as Glendale hit three home runs and stole four bases en route to an 8-1 nonleague victory against the Orange County Tides at Stengel Field.
Glendale won its season-high eighth game in a row to improve to 11-7. The Tides, a member of the Orange County Collegiate League, dropped to 2-8.
"We trust them with the bat," said Glendale Coach Tony Riviera, who used six pitchers to limit the Tides to five hits. "They are buying into the concept of looking for a pitch to hit in your zone.
