In two days, it went from having an undefeated season to having its year come to an end. A day after falling to the second-chance bracket of the Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Major Baseball Tournament, Two Guys from Italy found itself needing a victory to keep its once perfect season alive. The Burbank League's Angels proved to be too much for the squad from the Foothill League, defeating Two Guys 7-3, on Friday at Montrose Park. "It was a tough loss," said Two Guys Coach Hutch Arzoumanian, whose team - which lost to Warren Printing, 11-1, on Thursday - ended its season at 26-2.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Neither Chris Stroh or Julian Jarrad are one of the 25 pitchers listed on the Glendale Angelenos roster, but they were both called upon by Angelenos Coach Tony Riviera to close out Friday's game. While the pair let one run slip through, Jarrad retired the final two batters of the game to pick up the save in the 4-3 victory over Long Beach Legend at Stengel Field. "Stroh has been fantasy pitching in the outfield the entire season and I got a little tired of seeing it so I thought I'd let him put his money where his mouth is," said Riviera, whose team improved to 19-6 with the win. "We try to do stuff differently all the time to make the team feel a little bit loose and confident.

NORTHWEST GLENDALE ? Two outs were all that separated the Hoover High baseball team from the first round of the CIF Southern Section Division I tournament. Two outs too many. Visiting Arlington of Riverside rallied for two runs with one out in the top of the seventh inning to edge past Hoover in a 4-3 nailbiter in a wild-card game Tuesday afternoon at Hoover High. "Our kids played with a lot of heart and a lot of desire. That's all I asked of them before the game, to come out, play with heart and play to their potential, and I got it," said Hoover Coach Jim Delzell, whose team ended its season at 14-10 after a third-place Pacific League finish.

Hamlet Nalbandyan Kirsten Slouber is the new girl on the team, but the 15-year-old just might be the person to take the Glendale Senior Softball team to its second consecutive World Series championship. The reigning title holders had no problem moving into the championship game of the Little League Section 2 Tournament, all thanks to Slouber's dominance in the circle and the stellar defense behind her. Glendale, the District 16 representative, beat District 17's San Marino, 2-0, Sunday at Montrose Park as Slouber tossed a no-hitter.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - A four-hour thriller saw the Glendale Angelenos trail, tie and then fall behind by as many as five runs in the seventh inning. But Glendale's summer collegiate baseball club made an improbable comeback when Ruben Padilla singled up the middle with two outs to score Matt Tellesco for the game-winning run. It capped a seven-run ninth inning, as the Angelenos defeated the SoCal Halos, 11-10, at Stengel Field. Glendale (7-2) trailed, 10-4, heading into the bottom of the ninth, as it got five hits, including four straight to close out the win. "Words can't describe how elated I am," Angelenos Coach Tony Riviera said.

MONTROSE — With their early lead, and even their starting pitcher, gone before the end of the top of the second inning, the tide seemed to be turning against the Foothill All-Stars in their District 16 9-10 Softball Tournament if-necessary championship contest with the Tujunga All-Stars on Tuesday. Alex Howard was able to right Foothill’s ship with 2 2/3 innings of one-hit ball in emergency relief of Jordan Lousararian and Tujunga’s control and fielding difficulties provided Foothill with ample scoring opportunities in a 13-3 mercy-rule shortened game at Montrose Park.

BURBANK — At this point, Crescenta Valley High pitcher Nate Rousey might be the last guy the Burbank baseball team wants to see on the mound. The sophomore right-hander beat the Bulldogs for the second time this season on Tuesday afternoon, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings to lead the Falcons to an 8-1 Pacific League victory at Burbank. “I was just trying to get ahead in the count and let the defense work for me,” said Rousey, who received plenty of run support from Troy Mulcahey and Elliott Surrey, who both went four for four with a combined seven runs batted in. The win was Crescenta Valley’s 12th in its last 13 league games since dropping its league opener to Burroughs on March 23. The Falcons’ only loss in that span came to Arcadia, which clinched the league title on Tuesday with its win over Glendale.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — It took a while for the Flintridge Prep softball team to get a feel for the timing of Providence starting pitcher Natalie Kasbarian. Once it did, the result was a five-run sixth inning, as the Rebels broke open a tie ballgame. That outburst was just enough to withstand a furious seventh-inning comeback attempt by the Pioneers, who fell one run short in the Rebels' 9-8 nonleague win on Friday afternoon at Flintridge Prep. "These girls have been working real hard, and what I like is that it was a total team effort," Rebels Coach Julie Jaime said.

TUJUNGA — After the bizarre ways in which several scoring opportunities were snuffed out early in Friday's District 16 9-10 Baseball All-Star Tournament game, anything seemed possible. Still, when the Vaquero All-Stars saw their best opportunity to overtake the Tujunga All-Stars abruptly ended by a triple play, the general reaction was one of stunned bewilderment in the moments following a 3-2 first-round loss at Tujunga Little League Fields. "That's never happened to us — not this year at least," said Vaquero Coach Hector Nuñez.

TUJUNGA — Crescenta Valley All-Stars pitcher Jonathan Tyler kept Thursday’s opening-round game of the District 16 10-11 Baseball All-Star Tournament moving at a remarkably efficient pace. The right-hander cruised through six innings on just 63 pitches to record a six-hit shutout and, as a result, his team is moving on to the second round of the winner’s bracket after controlling Tujunga, 6-0, at Tujunga Little League Fields. “I just wanted to get my team the win,” said Tyler, who struck out five, walked none and also went three for four with two runs batted in. “I felt great today and I just felt like I was in control of all of my pitches.

GLENDALE - Trailing by three runs to Burroughs High, the Hoover baseball team was looking for something to ignite it late in Friday's Pacific League game. That spark might just have come in the form of a defensive play. In the top of the sixth inning with Burroughs at bat, the Tornadoes got out of the frame on a double play that ended with an Indians runner being thrown out at home after a fly to right field. PHOTOS: Hoover comeback results in 4-3 victory over Burroughs Using the play as motivation, Hoover came back and tied the game in the bottom of the sixth and eventually won the contest on a walk-off suicide squeeze in the eighth inning to complete a 4-3 comeback against visiting Burroughs.

Presumably to avoid confusion, Sony has added the words "The Amazing" to the titles of its current Spider-Man series. What? He wasn't amazing the first time around? Was Tobey Maguire the Meh Spider-Man? This rebranding feels like a defensive gesture, given that the character (as played by Andrew Garfield in 2012) was no more amazing than his 2002 counterpart (Maguire). And the film was frankly somewhat less amazing. Is it any different this time? It would make sense to compare this second installment of Sony's reboot to its counterpart in the previous Spider-Man trilogy.

I am compelled to get the word out regarding a Senate bill that could adversely affect private preschools in California. The bill is labeled SB 837 or Kindergarten Readiness Act of 2014. This bill is written with good intentions, but the implementation is a problem. The bill written by state Sen. Darrell Steinberg is asking for approval to provide free preschool to all 4-year-olds - a noble idea. Because of how the author and co-authors have chosen to fund the bill, it places these 4-year-olds in our public school system.

Glendale Community College officials are hopeful the state will give them more than $1 million to pay for unexpected costs tied to the school's lab/college services building, which is under construction. When crews broke ground on the building last fall, they didn't anticipate finding an old drainage system, unstable soil and groundwater as they prepared to construct its foundation, said Ron Nakasone, executive vice president of administrative services. Although the college has $2.1 million set aside to pay for contingency costs, college trustees have approved spending about $850,000 on change orders due to the additional unexpected costs.

Union members turned out to support the editing team behind the NBC reality show “Last Comic Standing” on Tuesday and picketed outside the Hollywood Production Center in Glendale for the workers' right to unionize. Fifteen editors and assistant editors walked out of the cutting room on Monday in hopes of joining International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, Local 700. By signing a contract with a union, the crew would gain health and retirement benefits and guaranteed pay for overtime, said Rob Callahan, an organizer with the Motion Picture Editors Guild.

On a recent sunny weekend on the USC campus, more than 100,000 bookies gathered to read, attend author seminars, panels and lunch from ubiquitous food trucks. The Los Angeles Times 19th annual Festival of Books also featured author readings and screenings as well as musical and cooking demonstrations. It attracted Southland readers, many of them pushing strollers for the littlest of would-be wordsmiths.

After editing montage sequences at Warner Bros. during World War II, Don Siegel made his directing debut with two shorts, both of which won Oscars in the same year. Neat trick. After being promoted to making features, his output was of mixed quality until his eighth feature, "Riot in Cell Block 11. " Two years later, he solidified his reputation with the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" and went on to direct "Dirty Harry" and other major Clint Eastwood films. "Riot" was a Hollywood film, but didn't feel like one. This story - about a group of prisoners who rebel in protest of abusive conditions - had no female characters shoehorned into the plot by contrivance and no real stars.

Re: “ New Dodger TV deal bad for fans,” Mailbag, April 9 . Longtime Dodgers fan Robert Tarallo spoke for many of us in expressing his displeasure with the naked greed shown by the new owners of the Dodgers. They gave us hope for a fleeting season before showing their true, ugly, avaricious selves. But I have to differ with his call to stop supporting the team. I'll bleed Dodger blue till I die. I hate what the new owners have done to the fans, but I stand with the players and the team.
