COMPTON - For the first time all tournament long, the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team appeared vulnerable and perhaps even beatable. Yet, that didn't matter. The Saints proved themselves untouchable and clinched a berth in Thursday's opening round of the Palomino League World Series by topping the San Jose Giants, 5-2, in Tuesday evening's West Zone championship at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy. The victory was the first for Arroyo Seco (32-4-1) in the West Zone finals since 2004 and proved especially satisfying since the Saints were turned away in back-to-back West Zone Finals the last two years.

According to a report on mlbtraderumors.com, the Giants also offered their starting second baseman an option with buyout language for 2013, which he declined.
