Saro Sarkisian NORTH HILLS -- For five innings, the Flintridge Prep baseball team played an outstanding game both offensively and defensively against Brethren Christian on Saturday at L.A. Baptist High school. The Rebels scored three runs and allowed one going into the final two innings. Unfortunately, Flintridge Prep gave up eight runs from then on, including a grand slam in the bottom of the seventh inning and left five runners on base, as it fell to the Lancers, 9-5. "I thought we played well, but when we had runners on base, we couldn't get them in," Rebel Coach Robert Cook said.

GLENDALE - The Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Stars softball team has a special situational cheer that starts with “She's a grand slam hitter.” With the bases loaded against Canyon Country on Sunday and Aidyn Kehrli at the plate, the CV team went into that specific cheer. Kehrli responded with a hit to the deepest part of center field, raced around the bases and beat the throw home for, yes, a grand slam. “In my head I said 'I want to hit a grand slam,'” Kehrli said. Propelled by the grand slam, Crescenta Valley defeated Canyon Country, 12-2, after four innings in the second round of the Section 2 Tournament at Scholl Canyon.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The Burbank Diamondbacks had a chance to make history, and they seized the opportunity. Burbank shook off a shaky first inning and came up with some fine pitching and a solid defensive effort Friday to post a 6-1 win in the Tri-Cities District 16 Major Baseball Tournament of Champions Little League title game against Crescenta Valley Gangi Builders at Babe Herman Field. It was Burbank’s first Major championship in the program’s history.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Before he stepped into the batter's box, David Piedra realized that his team had yet to record a hit against the Burbank Angels. With one big swing from the catcher on the Vaquero Cougars Major Baseball team, Piedra greatly changed things. Piedra hit a grand slam and scored two runs Wednesday night to lift Vaquero to a 12-3 victory against Burbank in the title game of the Tri-Cities District 16 Tournament of Champions at Babe Herman Field. With Burbank clinging to a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third, Piedra hit a 2-0 pitch over the left-field fence to give Vaquero a 6-3 lead.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE - In a nutshell, the Crescenta Valley Hollywood Studio Galley Tri-Cities Minor softball team had every component working for it throughout the season.

The game was called after four innings because of the 10-run mercy rule.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A well-placed single with the bases loaded by Sako Chapjian might have been all the Glendale Angelenos needed to score two runs and win Friday night's California Collegiate League game against the Conejo Oaks at Stengel Field. Instead, the Angelenos got a towering, walk-off grand slam from their right fielder out of Glendale Community College by way of Hoover High that won the game, 10-7, and could just be the rallying point the first-year CCL club needed to spark its slow-starting season.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Chris Cictuo looked for a walk-off suicide squeeze bunt to win the game for his Glendale Community College baseball team Saturday. Instead, the Vaqueros got a game-ending grand slam from Julian Jarrard in the bottom of the 10th inning of a 5-3 victory over San Diego Mesa in the first game of the best-of-three first-round series of the Southern California Regional Saturday at Stengel Field. "His first one came at a great time," said Cicuto of Jarrard's first home run of the season, which silenced teammates who had been poking fun at him for being the only Vaquero in the starting lineup without a bomb.

LA CRESCENTA - When her first-inning drive to deep left-center field hit off the top of the outfield fence for a double, Crescenta Valley High center fielder Hannah Cookson missed a three-run home run by mere inches. By the end of the Falcons' five-inning 18-7 Pacific League win over Arcadia, that near home run was the only thing the Falcons No. 3 hitter had missed. Crescenta Valley's 17-hit offensive explosion was keyed by an absolute monster day from Cookson, who hit two grand slams in the 12-run third inning to cap a three-for-three performance that included 10 runs batted in, three runs scored and 11 total bases.
