GLENDALE - No hit for the game's first three innings, the Glendale Angelenos certainly made up for lost time in collegiate summer league wood bat action Thursday evening. After the visiting Montebello Stars removed starting pitcher Nick Brown before the top of the fourth, the Angelenos responded by scoring at least one run in each of their five final innings in picking up a 10-3 victory at Stengel Field. “It was good to get out here, play some small ball and win,” Angelenos skipper Tony Riviera said.

CITY OF COMMERCE ? Trying to disregard 2005 might be impossible for the members of the La Cañada High boys' water polo team. The Spartans toppled Montebello last November to capture the CIF Southern Section Division III championship. Ironically, La Cañada found itself beginning defense of its championship against the Oilers. In turn, La Cañada showed Montebello it might be more difficult to beat this season. Junior driver Max Scott scored a career-high eight goals and the Spartans got a strong second-half defensive effort to earn a 15-7 nonleague victory against Montebello on Wednesday at the City of Commerce Aquatorium.

GLENDALE - Sam Frakes is all for showing his versatility on the mound for the Glendale Angelenos. The right-hander spent the first half of the season as a relief pitcher before making the switch to starter. Frakes provided a quality start Friday night, as he struck out seven and scattered three hits over six innings to spark host Glendale to a 13-2 victory against the Montebello Stars in a California Collegiate Summer League contest at Stengel Field. “I was looking to get one more quality start before heading into the playoffs,” said Frakes, who helped the Angelenos recently win the league's North Division championship and wrap up a berth in the league's postseason.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — One minute the Glendale High girls' volleyball team was celebrating a comeback rally in the first game of its nonleague home match with Montebello on Tuesday and looking to carry its momentum into the second game. The next, it was anxiously surrounding its starting middle blocker/outside hitter April Reed as she lay on the court wincing in pain with an ankle injury. Reed never returned and neither did the Nitros first-game moxie, as the Oilers assumed and retained control for a 24-26, 25-13, 25-12, 25-21 victory.
