Edgar Melik-Stepanyan Jesse Meaux had long ago established himself as a dominating pitcher. On Tuesday night against Crescenta Valley, Meaux cemented his place amongst the best 12-year-olds around. The Foothill Little League District 16 Major Baseball hurler simply overpowered his opposition and appeared untouchable at times, striking out 10 in a 3-1 second-chance bracket final victory at Babe Herman Field. "He's a very strong kid," said Foothill Coach Richard Robbins of Meaux, who struck out the first batter in five of the six innings.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? To say Hoover High's baseball team has had a bad experience at the 41st Babe Herman Tournament would be an understatement. On Tuesday, the Tornadoes lost their third tournament game in as many tries, getting shut out for a second straight contest as they fell to Glendora, 9-0, at Stengel Field. "I don't think we came ready to play," said Hoover Coach Jim Delzell, whose team fell to 9-5. "I don't want to take anything away from Glendora, they're a good team, but we didn't play like we're capable of playing."

Saro Sarkisian NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- When 15 errors are committed in a softball game, it is not a pretty sight. But when the Virgil's Hardware Fireball's 10- through 12-year old Major Softball team committed 10 of those errors, it spelled disaster. The Fireballs fell to Photography As An Art, 12-5, in a Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Major Softball winner's- bracket quarterfinal game Friday at Scholl Canyon Park. Photography (20-1) will play the winner of Parkview/ Monterey Tow at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Scholl Canyon.

LA CRESCENTA — Landing the first shot against an imposing, revved-up opponent set a great tone early. Even when down late in a close game, one jaw-dropping defensive play after another, one clutch delivery from the circle after the next kept the home team’s drive alive. But on Tuesday, the Crescenta Valley High softball team came just a few timely hits away from carrying on with a season that had previously known no heartbreak, only triumph, falling to visiting La Serna, 3-2, in the semifinal round and finishing with a school-record-tying 29 wins to just one tough loss.

Grant Gordon When inquiring about Flintridge Prep's Jenna Schachtner, chances are your answers will come in the form of cliches. The senior softball hurler gives the proverbial 110% every time she's on the field. She always gives it her all. She works as hards as anybody. She's the first one to arrive at practice and the last one to leave. Says Rebels' Coach Anne Konrad: "Her performance is always at the highest level. You never have to tell her to pick it up, she's always ready."

Hamlet Nalbandyan PASADENA -- The Glendale High baseball team had plenty of reasons for its lackluster performance in a 9-1 loss against St. Francis High at Pasadena's Brookside Park. After all, it's not easy playing five games in four days -- including two on Thursday -- and being short-handed on the mound. But judging from the way the Golden Knights performed Thursday, it really wouldn't have made much of a difference had the situations been ideal for the Nitros.

High expectations heading into the upcoming season for the Glendale Community College baseball team were accompanied with even higher praise from the California Community College Baseball Coaches Assn.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — When Crescenta Valley High pitcher Heather Bacon took to the circle on Thursday afternoon, it’s a relatively secure assumption that the All-Area hurler didn’t have all that much pressure upon her shoulders. As reliable as Falcons offensive dominance has become this Pacific League season and the last, Crescenta Valley’s 11-run first-inning explosion was still surprisingly spectacular. The offensive barrage keyed a 17-0 five-inning league win for the Falcons against host Glendale, in which Bacon combined with Erin Ashby for a no-hitter and Crescenta Valley rolled to its seventh straight win. “We came out and placed the ball where we needed to place the ball,” said Falcons senior shortstop Baillie Kirker, who went three for three with a walk, three runs scored and three runs batted in. “Our whole lineup battled through.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Over the first three innings of Tuesday afternoon's gusty Pacific League softball game at Glendale High, the host Nitros matched the visiting Burbank Bulldogs inning for inning, play for play. Then the wheels came off for the Nitros, as the Bulldogs ran off four runs in the fourth inning en route to an 11-0 victory at Dalton Field, highlighted by the 16-strikeout, shutout performance of Burbank hurler Kristin Peraza. "The first three innings, it was a tight ballgame," said first-year Burbank Coach Kris Jones, whose team improved to 10-7 overall and 6-1 in league.

GLENDALE - Just four games into the 2014 season, Crescenta Valley High junior pitcher Brian Gadsby has looked every bit the Falcons ace and the highly-touted standout he's quickly become. On Wednesday night in a Dick's Tournament game against Fullerton High, Gadsby again looked the part. The junior right-hander tossed a complete game to key the Falcons to a 2-1 victory over the Indians at Stengel Field. It marked the second straight win for Crescenta Valley (3-1). “It wasn't his best stuff,” Falcons Coach Phil Torres said, “but he competed, which he always does.

One moment Marco Estrada was on top of the world, enjoying a mountain of first-inning run support Wednesday afternoon and even driving in the last two runs of the six-run explosion himself with a rare feat for a starting pitcher - a two-out double. The next instant, the Milwaukee Brewers right-hander, who once played at Glendale Community College, was pulling up lame rounding first base, on his way out of the game and ultimately to the 15-day disabled list. Estrada was placed on the DL Thursday with a right quadriceps strain suffered while running the bases, according to a press release issued by the Brewers, who won Wednesday's home game over the San Francisco Giants, 8-5. "I almost wish I would have struck out on that," Estrada told mlb.com of his fateful hit after leaving the game in the first inning.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Despite a 2-0 loss to Antelope Valley College at the Glendale Sports Complex on Wednesday, the Glendale Community College softball team had a brighter outlook on the bulk of the season that still lies ahead. The Vaqueros' optimism came from the solid outing turned in by No. 1 starting pitcher Jennifer Meza, who limited an Antelope Valley lineup averaging better than eight runs a game to just one earned run on four hits in seven innings and acknowledged she's on her way to reestablishing the form that made her an All-Western State Conference pick as a freshman.

Santa Barbara hit the road early after its first game of the season — dispatching host Glendale in five innings. The easy victory came behind a stellar pitching performance from Kailey Snyder, leaving Santa Barbara's Coach Paula Congleton with little to critique.
