Charles Rich They didn't travel halfway across the world to have their spirits dampened by a rare rainy day in Southern California. Nor did the members of the Tokyo-based Rikkyo-St. Paul's University baseball team shed tears after they had exhibition games against USC and UCLA canceled Wednesday because of inclement weather. There were traces of disappointment, but the Japanese athletes carried on by practicing and scrimmaging Thursday at venerable Stengel Field.

BURBANK — At this point, Crescenta Valley High pitcher Nate Rousey might be the last guy the Burbank baseball team wants to see on the mound. The sophomore right-hander beat the Bulldogs for the second time this season on Tuesday afternoon, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings to lead the Falcons to an 8-1 Pacific League victory at Burbank. “I was just trying to get ahead in the count and let the defense work for me,” said Rousey, who received plenty of run support from Troy Mulcahey and Elliott Surrey, who both went four for four with a combined seven runs batted in. The win was Crescenta Valley’s 12th in its last 13 league games since dropping its league opener to Burroughs on March 23. The Falcons’ only loss in that span came to Arcadia, which clinched the league title on Tuesday with its win over Glendale.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Mired in a losing streak as long as he can remember incurring during his 12 seasons at Flintridge Prep, Rebels baseball Coach Buzz Cook saw a shaky start against archrival Pasadena Poly characterized by fielding gaffes and baserunning miscues that was just the opposite of what he had hoped to see. “And it got worse from there,” said Cook on Friday, not long after his Rebels had succumbed to the Panthers, 16-4,...

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Standing in front of the pitcher's mound on the all-dirt infield at the Glendale Sports Complex on Friday morning, Buzz Cook leaned into a shopping cart holding dozens of baseballs. Cook grabbed a ball one at a time and tossed batting practice for about an hour to eager athletes who attended the first of two installments of the second annual Flintridge Prep Baseball Camp. The reverberation of the ball hitting the bat resonated throughout the north side of the venue.

Charles Rich PASADENA -- Riding the coattails of a four-game winning streak, Glendale High baseball Coach Jay Chadwick said his squad hasn't played a complete game this season. That might raise a few eyebrows among the members of the Pacific League coaching fraternity, who have had trouble recently beating the Nitros, but Chadwick doesn't pull any punches making such succinct comments. Chadwick's statements might serve as a motivational tool for his team, which posted a 5-3 road league victory against Pasadena on Tuesday.

BURBANK — The Hoover High baseball team has had no problem scoring runs this season. It's the team's pitching that has struggled. In contrast, Burbank has relied on solid pitching to go along with a potent hitting attack. When the teams met Tuesday in a Pacific League game at Burbank High, the tables were turned. The Tornadoes received a complete-game performance from their starting pitcher and the Bulldogs had their troubles on the mound and struggled to score runs, as Hoover earned a 5-1 victory.

OXNARD — The recipe to success has been a simple one this season for the Crescenta Valley High baseball team. Solid pitching. Fluid fielding. Timely hitting. Intelligent baserunning. All staples of Falcons baseball. Add it up and it usually spells victory. Take away one or more of those ingredients and success becomes an elusive achievement. Such became the case on Friday for the Falcons. Despite a more than serviceable performance from starter Dustin Emmons, the remaining ingredients were noticeably absent and the result was a 3-2 road loss to Rio Mesa in the quarterfinals of the CIF Division II playoffs.

VALLEY GLEN ? A day ago, the St. Francis High baseball team was two wins away from winning a Mission League championship. Now, the Golden Knights might be on the verge of finishing in third place in league. That's where they might land if they don't defeat Crespi on Thursday in their regular-season finale. St. Francis couldn't overcome the Celts on Tuesday, losing, 5-1, at L.A. Valley College to fall a game out of first place and into a tie with Crespi for second. "We weren't ourselves today," Golden Knight Coach Mike Solar said.

Charles Rich LA CRESCENTA -- Something gloomy struck the Glendale Senior Baseball team each inning Friday night. A three-run error and several base-running blunders halted Glendale's bid to advance to the Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament championship game after it dropped a 9-7 decision to Burbank in a winner's-bracket semifinal game at Dunsmore Park. Burbank will meet the Tujunga Giants in the title game at 4 p.m. today at Tujunga Field.

Finishing games early has apparently become a habit for this year’s Falcon softball squad. For the eleventh time this season, Crescenta Valley claimed a victory via called-game, as the Falcons defeated Pasadena, 10-0, in a five inning Pacific Division match-up on Tuesday afternoon. It was also the thirteenth time the Falcons (21-1, 11-0) won by shutout. It was also one of the rare occasions the Falcons won without scoring big in at least one inning — Crescenta Valley never scored more than three runs in the home frame against the Bulldogs (4-13, 1-9)
