Erik Boal It was easily the most important game of the Glendale High baseball team's season and perhaps the most important start of Gerald Martinez's career. All of this pressure for a senior, and his 15 teammates, who were supposed to be enjoying their Spring Break. But after Jay Chadwick watched his team hit rock bottom with Monday's 12-run loss to Alta Loma -- a game in which the Nitros managed just one hit -- in the 40th annual Babe Herman Tournament, he needed Martinez to step up and deliver Tuesday at home against Ojai Nordhoff.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? With five people situated deep in the goal box, G.P. Martinez figured he stood a chance. It took some creativity and good eye coordination.

The Golden Knights (4-0) will meet El Camino Real in a tournament semifinal match at 2:30 p.m. today at Occidental College.

Less than 24 hours removed from a heartbreaking 7-6 loss that saw it give up a six-run lead, the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth squad bounced back to the tune of a 14-0 mercy-rule win against Simi Valley in five innings on Saturday afternoon at Stengel Field in a loser's bracket elimination game of the Babe Ruth 14-year-old Southern California Tournament. "I guess it's safe to say that pretty bad loss is far behind us," La Crescenta Coach Marcel Martinez said. Jonny Psaltis twirled five innings of two-hit, shutout ball, striking out four and not allowing a Simi Valley runner to get past second base.

It appears Alhambra resident H.G. Martinez is still "outraged" over the speeding ticket received for doing 39 mph in a school zone. It is clear from Martinez's position that the children of Glendale don't count when he hits the gas pedal while rocketing through Glendale.

When the Rossmoyne/Mountain Homeowners Assn.
