GLENDALE — The members of the San Gabriel Valley 16-18 Babe Ruth haven’t been accustomed to losing during the past five weeks. On Wednesday night, the squad, featuring nine local athletes, dropped a 9-2 decision to host Columbia Basin, Wash., in a final American Division pool-play contest of the Babe Ruth World Series in Moses Lake, Wash. All isn’t completely lost though for San Gabriel Valley, which finished second in its pool. San Gabriel Valley, which captured the Southern California and Pacific Southwest Regional championships to advance to the World Series, will begin competing in the single-elimination portion of the tournament at 8 p.m. today against Cape Cod, Mass.

GLENDALE ? After 10 long days and five hard-fought games, the San Gabriel Valley All-Star team has positioned itself right where it wants to be. Where it wants to be is in the championship game of the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series with hopes of reclaiming its title. The squad reached the finals following its fifth victory in as many tries, this time a 4-2 win over Columbia Basin, Wash. on Thursday in Newark, Ohio during the tournament?s semifinals. Next comes a meeting with Denham Springs, La., today at 4 p.m. PST for all the marbles.

GLENDALE — Midway through the fifth batter of the game, San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth 16-18 All-Star Coach Phil Torres had to make a difficult decision in removing starting pitcher Gary Acuna. The usually reliable Acuna struggled early with his command, walking the first four batters of the game before being removed after tossing two balls to the fifth batter. "Acuna is a real good pitcher and he wanted to pitch well, but we had to give ourselves a chance," Torres said after San Gabriel Valley was handed a 4-0 loss against Ottumwa, Iowa, on Monday night in an American Division pool-play game of the World Series at Ephrata High in Ephrata, Wash.

GLENDALE ? Here?s something worth noting with respect to many of the nine area athletes competing on the San Gabriel Valley 16-18 Babe Ruth All-Star team: They are quite capable of changing a game quickly. A perfect example came Wednesday night. Troy Mulcahey, Troy Prasertsit and Nate Rousey of Crescenta Valley High each had two hits to help lead San Gabriel Valley to an 11-4 victory against Long Island in an American Division pool-play game of the Babe Ruth World Series in Moses Lake, Wash.

GLENDALE ? The San Gabriel Valley All-Star baseball team's mercy-rule win over Muskingum Valley Saturday in the second round of pool play at the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series in Newark, Ohio wasn't so much an all-out offensive assault as it was a victory by attrition. As pitchers Maverick Olivares, Nick Kennedy and Chris Eusebio combined to keep Muskingum Valley off the scoreboard on just two hits allowed, the offense steadily added to the team's lead inning-by-inning in small bunches before Max Valerio's run-scoring hit in the bottom of the sixth made the final score 10-0 and the seventh inning unnecessary.

GLENDALE — Joey Sedano saw no point wasting time. Instead, Sedano wanted to drive a pitch he could handle and put the San Gabriel Valley 16-18 Babe Ruth All-Star team in position to stay close and possibly win. He accomplished that goal. Sedano had a key run-scoring double in the top of the third inning to help San Gabriel Valley rally for a 4-3 victory against Lake Minnetonka of Minnesota on Monday afternoon in an American Division pool-play contest of the Babe Ruth World Series in Moses Lake, Wash.

GLENDALE — None of the teams that have faced the San Gabriel Valley All-Star baseball team so far in the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series have had much luck against a deep and quality pitching staff. Hits have been scarce and runs have been nonexistent. San Gabriel Valley got a stellar performance from pitcher Chris Eusebio and a key two-run double from Dustin Emmons on Monday afternoon to spark a 5-0 victory against Columbia Basin, Wash. in an American Division pool-play contest at the Babe Ruth National Complex at Don Edwards Park in Newark, Ohio.

GLENDALE — Things are really coming together for the San Gabriel Valley 16-18 Babe Ruth All-Stars, both on the field and off. Set to open play in the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series in Moses Lake, Wash. against Baxter (Tenn.) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, San Gabriel Valley is playing solid baseball and becoming more of a team and less of a collection of players cobbled together with little more in common than their talent. “After the [Southern California] tournament, we had only had two practices and three games together,” said All-Stars’ catcher and Crescenta Valley High senior Joe Sedano, one of nine Falcons on San Gabriel Valley’s World Series roster.
