Hamlet Nalbandyan Much to the displeasure of those who were hoping for a quick one at Montrose Park on Friday, the Burbank Major Baseball All-Star team avoided the mercy rule in its second-chance bracket game against Vaquero. Down by 11 runs with two outs in the bottom of the fifth, the 11- and 12-year-olds staved off elimination for at least another inning, thanks to a two-run home run by Austin Holgate. But all that did was delay the inevitable, because there would be no stopping Vaquero on this day. Jim De La Torre's squad collected 12 hits and benefited from eight errors to post a 12-5 victory.

Stephanie Ziemann had a home run with five RBIs. In the second game, Crescenta Valley repeated the mercy rule behind Kali Cancelosi?s strong pitching. Delaney Gay went 2-for-3 with a home run. The Falcons are now 11-1 on the season, 2-0 in league; their lone loss came last week to Fullerton, 3-2, in the High Desert Classic.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE — Right now, it's hard to fathom that the Crescenta Valley High baseball team has actually lost a Pacific League game this season. But the Falcons did — way back on March 23. Since then, they've been unbeatable to the tune of 14 straight victories overall and eight in a row in league after Friday afternoon's lopsided 11-1 triumph against host Hoover that ended after five innings due to the mercy-rule. "It starts in practice, we work hard in practice and it's starting to show in games," said Falcons shortstop Kris Kauppila, who went two for four with two runs batted in and a triple on Friday.

Peter Samore GLENDALE -- Though a 10-0 loss to Tualatin City, Ore., brought the Foothill-Tujunga major softball all-stars' season to an end Wednesday at Alderwood Park in Alderwood Manor, Wash., the team can reflect on the success it enjoyed this summer. For the third straight year, Foothill-Tujunga emerged as the State champion and, this year, came within one game of the World Series in Portland, Ore. The 11- and 12-year-old all-stars from Tualatin City ended the Western Regionals Tournament in Alderwood Manor, Wash.

PASADENA - Regional play has become an annual summer feast for the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team. That trend continued when the Saints competed in the PONY SoCal Palomino Regional Playoffs at Jackie Robinson Field against Hart in the second of two games to complete pool play. “This is how the region has been the last three or four years… it's a little lopsided in pool play,” Saints Coach Aaron Milam said. PHOTOS: Arroyo Seco Saints vs. Hart Palomino in Pony League Baseball The Saints had no trouble dispatching their opponents from Santa Clarita, dominating every facet of the contest to claim a 12-0 victory over Hart in a game shortened to five innings via the mercy rule.

GLENDALE - It was just one of those baseball games where the Crescenta Valley 10-11 All-Star team could do no wrong, and the Foothill-Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans squad couldn't catch a break. “Our team is from top to bottom capable,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Dean Baker. “All 12, 13 kids can definitely hit the ball. We look for them to put up good numbers all through out.” And they certainly put up good numbers, as Crescenta Valley defeated Foothill, 24-0, in the opening round of the District 16 tournament at Montrose Park on Friday.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - A pair of Crescenta Valley 10- and 11-year-old softball players mentioned after Saturday's Little League contest that they couldn't wait to smack the ball against the pitchers from the Vaquero/Jewel City-Jewish War Veterans squad. Peyton Marshall said she was impatient, and described teammate Brianna McReynolds as "feisty," at the plate and in the circle. But Marshall and McReynolds didn't get many opportunities to hit because they had to remain patient against two struggling pitchers.

Crescenta Valley thwarted Quartz Hills' perfect-game bid, though it suffered a 13-0 loss in a game called after four innings because of the 10-run mercy rule at Canyon Country Little League Field.
