The victims were walking on a fire road at the end of Sleepy Hollow Drive when they were approached by a group of five men who were armed with a baseball bat and demanded their wallets and cell phones, police said.

GLENDALE - Glendale High's baseball team has faced some tough pitching in nonleague action so far and its offense just hasn't found a way to overcome the bigger arms yet. Glendale, taking part in its first game of the Babe Herman Tournament on Saturday morning, looked, at times, overwhelmed at the plate, as Village Christian's Chris Davidson had his way with the lineup and led the Crusaders to a 4-1 win at Glendale High School. Like Johnson in the opener, Davidson struck out 13 batters, while allowing three hits and two walks in a complete game gem.  “He had command, never got behind, threw curveballs for first-pitch strikes,” said first-year Nitros Coach Alan Eberhart, whose team lost for the first time this season by more than one run. “We were overmatched and never really responded.” The Nitros (2-4)

ARCADIA - A potent offense registering 12 hits overcame costly errors late in the game for the St. Francis High baseball squad in the opening game of the Apache Invitational Saturday morning at Arcadia High. After giving up two game-tying runs in the fifth inning on two errors, the Golden Knights rebounded to re-take the lead in the sixth and opened the floodgates in the seventh en route to a 9-4 win over West Covina in pool play. “When we took a 2-0 lead early, we went into a lull,” Golden Knights interim Coach Aaron Milam said.

MONTROSE — The Crescenta Valley 10-11 baseball team did in the District 16 10-11 championship game what it had done all tournament, as it put up plenty of runs and just as many zeros when it was in the field. In Tuesday's finale against Burbank, Crescenta Valley's dominant effort on offense and defense resulted in a mercy-rule call and the squad punching a ticket to the Section 2 Tournament. "We have a potent offense, and we hit the ball better than anything else," said Crescenta Valley Coach David Mulcahey after the team's 15-1 title-clinching win at Montrose Park.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — There were times on Friday afternoon when the Hoover High baseball team’s pitching or defense gave Oakwood a chance to get back in the teams’ game at Hoover. But the Tornadoes bats rarely faltered and never failed to keep them on top right up until the end of a 12-9 nonleague win. “The kids hit the ball great today,” Hoover first-year Coach Joe Cotti said. “You’ve got to use the entire field and not try to yank everything out of the ballpark.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Holding a two-run lead in the bottom of the third inning with the bases loaded and no outs, everything appeared headed in the right direction for the host Glendale Community College baseball team. Surprisingly enough, it was the beginning of a drastic change in momentum that led to visiting Citrus College defeating Glendale, 8-6, on a sunny Tuesday afternoon in a Western State Conference tilt at Stengel Field. “The momentum just switched sides,” said Glendale third baseman and Hoover High graduate Sako Chapjian, who went two for four with a home run and two runs scored.
