Edgar Melik-Stepanyan NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Don't call it a comeback. Just call it one team absolutely walking over its opponent. The Virgil's Hardware Fireballs Little League District 16 Major Softball team trailed by one run following four innings of play Saturday in a Tri-Cities Tournament second-chance bracket game. But once the fifth inning began, it was lights out for the Red Hots, the Crescenta Valley League representative.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan It's become a routine that's so minimal, but yet so vital. Every time Ciri Bryan steps into the batter's box, she glances toward Brock Turner's direction, and the La Canada High softball coach always has a simple unspoken message for her. Turner takes a deep breath and drops his shoulders, advising his hitter to stay relaxed at the plate. There's a little history behind Turner's message to Bryan. In the past, the first-year coach would watch Bryan overstride on pitches, striving for that big hit in every plate appearance.

GLENDALE — Freddy Sanchez was unable to keep his six-game postseason hitting streak going on Thursday night, but with his San Francisco Giants teammates feasting on an implosion by the Texas Rangers bullpen for seven runs in the bottom of the eighth inning, it hardly mattered. One night after going four for five in Game One with a major league-record three doubles in his first three World Series plate appearances, the former Burbank High and Glendale Community College standout went hitless in five at bats in Game Two, which the Giants won, 9-0, to take a 2-0 series lead.

Plate appearances have been hard to come by for the Glendale Community College baseball player throughout the season, but he hasn’t let it deter him from making the most of any opportunity handed to him by Coach Chris Cicuto. Fujisaku enjoyed his biggest moment of the season Thursday afternoon, as he hit a pair of three-run home runs and drove in seven runs to carry Glendale college to a 13-6 Western State Conference victory against rival College of the Canyons at Stengel Field.
