Erik Boal As Glendale Senior Softball co-coaches Dave Miller and Dave Stauffer both said, never in Meghann Muirhead's entire Little League career did she have the opportunity to pitch in a championship game. That was until her coaches handed her the ball Wednesday in the second game in the best-of-three championship series in the Little League Western Regional Tournament at Jim Scown Field at the Northwest Little League Complex. And in the most pressure-packed situation of Glendale's entire summer, Muirhead stepped to the challenge against a quality South Everett (Wash.

Peter Fuertes STENGEL FIELD -- Ask Glendale Community College baseball Coach Chris Zavatsky, and he'll tell you the team has been plagued by inconsistency. That almost cost the Vaqueros against San Diego Mesa College in the Vaquero Classic 2000 Baseball Tournament. However, the bats of John Manuel and Jason Botts saved GCC. Both had home runs in the bottom of the seventh inning -- Manuel's solo shot the game winner -- to lift the Vaqueros to a 6-3 victory at Stengel Field.

Saro Sarkisian SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- Despite striking out nine batters and allowing only three hits, Glendale High baseball pitcher Carlos Cabrera didn't get much help from his team, as the Nitros produced just one run and were tied with Van Nuys after 6 1/2 innings. But in the bottom of the seventh, Kevin Hickcox blasted a two-run homer over the left-center field wall to lift Glendale to the 3-1 win the San Fernando Valley Tournament game Saturday at home.

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.

Erik Boal The late-game heroics that the Glendale Senior Softball All-Stars had become so accustomed to during the first round of pool play in the Little League Western Regional Tournament unfortunately belonged to East Redding on Monday. After spotting the Division 2 champion a three-run lead in the top of the first inning, Glendale eventually rallied to tie it in the fifth and seemed primed to record another come-from-behind victory. But East Redding pinch-hitter Randi Darrah hit a two-out flare into short left field in the top of the eighth that was bobbled and eventually dropped, which led to a pair of unearned runs and a 6-3 victory at Jim Scown Field at the Northwest Little League Complex.

Peter Samore STENGEL FIELD -- La Canada Spartan Coach John Gabrielson offered a concise answer in his team's loss Friday night at Stengel Field. "It's real simple," he said. "We're a little rusty. We need to work on our hitting. "Give us a couple more games and we should be competitive." Also, the Reds could not take advantage of six hits and 11 walks from Magic pitcher Dustin Bowers in their 12-3 Connie Mack summer baseball league defeat.

SOUTHWEST GLENDALE ? With Jack Porras in a zone on the mound, everything seemed to click for the 9- and 10-year-old Foothill All-Star Baseball squad. Porras, a right-hander, had a vast array of pitches to confuse Tujunga. He struck out 12 and delivered a key two-run double in the third inning to help Foothill breeze to an 8-0 victory against Tujunga on Tuesday night in a Tri-Cities Little League District 16 All-Star Tournament contest at Pacific Park. Foothill, which opened the tournament Monday night with a lopsided 16-4 win against Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans at Pacific Park, will next face Crescenta Valley or Burbank in a winner?

SANTA MONICA — One week into the 2008 CIF Southern Section Division III softball playoffs, the games are getting tighter, the competition tougher and, of course, the stakes ever higher. None of it has seemed to affect the Crescenta Valley High softball team, which handled its biggest postseason challenge yet with textbook precision on Thursday and emerged unscathed from a quarterfinal showdown at Santa Monica to reach the semifinal round for the first time since 2000. Crescenta Valley’s 3-0 win over the Vikings started with the Falcons seizing an immediate upper hand — in the form of a two-run first inning — and ended with seven shutout innings pitched by Kali Cancelosi.
