GLENDALE — In a game that La Crescenta Coach Rick Marquis basically characterized as a knockdown, drag out fight, it was the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars that were the last team standing. “It was a battle, it was fantastic pitching for both sides,” said Marquis just after La Crescenta defeated host Eureka, 4-2, in the opening round of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Pacific Southwest Regional late Thursday night at Babe Ruth Field in Eureka. La Crescenta will now play Tri-Valley, the Northern California champions, at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

"Birds eat plastic, and it chokes them," Cristina said. "Dolphins and sea lions are really cute, and they do not deserve to be killed by us. Same with birds."
