In their first opportunity to clinch a Section 2 title on Tuesday, the Crescenta Valley 10-11 All-Stars never had much of a chance to do so after falling far behind Sherman Oaks early. In Wednesday's "if necessary" game, Crescenta Valley rallied in the final two innings and certainly gave itself that chance, but lost to Sherman Oaks for the second time in as many days, 10-8. "We came out today and we did exactly what we wanted to do," Crescenta Valley Coach Mike Klein said.

NORTHRIDGE -- About the only thing more impressive than the offensive production enjoyed by Crescenta Valley 9-10 baseball all-star Zach Feehan was the near-mammoth rally made by his team's opponent - Sherman Oaks - in Saturday morning's opening round of the Section 2 tournament.   While Feehan's four-for-four day was a triple short of a cycle, his team didn't miss a chance to continue its winning ways after taking an eight-run lead and eventually holding on for an 8-6 victory.

MONTROSE — Claiming a Section 2 title will have to wait at least one more day for the Crescenta Valley 10-11 All-Stars. Coach Mike Klein is just hoping his baseball team doesn't wait as long to get started as it did on Tuesday evening. Behind an 11-run outburst over the first two innings, Sherman Oaks defeated Crescenta Valley, 13-6, at Montrose Park, forcing an "if-necessary" final today at 6 p.m. Klein said he knew Sherman Oaks would have to come out fired up if it had any chances of winning two straight games.

Erik Boal Just 10 pitches and three mighty swings into Sunday's winner's-bracket final of the Little League Section 2 Tournament, the Crescenta Valley 11-year-old All-Star baseball team had already surpassed Friday's run total, and appeared primed for more. But even with the early lead, CV Coach Jeff Ward said he never felt comfortable against Sherman Oaks, and the District 40 champion eventually showed why. After the rough start, pitcher Marti Sementelli regrouped in fine fashion, her defense performed flawlessly and the offense took care of the rest, as Sherman Oaks posted an impressive 13-3 five-inning mercy-rule victory at Encino Little League Complex.

SHERMAN OAKS - With the playoffs set to begin next week, the members of the St. Francis High basketball team are still scrambling to get back on track. St. Francis figured it could begin its path to right the ship when it faced host Sherman Oaks Notre Dame on Monday in a Mission League game. Notre Dame had yet to win a league game. Notre Dame must have forgotten it hadn't won in a long time, and promptly caught St. Francis off guard to post a 48-44 victory. Slumping St. Francis, ranked third in the latest CIF Southern Section Division III-A poll, dipped to 15-10, 4-7 in league.

Los Angeles recorded another large drop in homicides in 2013, and nowhere has the trend been more pronounced than in the San Fernando Valley. The Valley had 40 homicides this year, dropping 35% from 2012 - the biggest decline of any region in the city. As recently as 2006, the region recorded 87 homicides, the Los Angeles Times reports . When it comes to falling crime, much of the focus has been on traditionally high-crime areas like South L.A. and the Eastside. But police officials and community leaders say the decline in violence in tough parts of the Valley, notably Pacoima, Lakeview Terrace, Sun Valley and Sylmar, has also been striking.

Deep down below a bustling street in Glendale, there exists a cellar beyond the wildest dreams of any oenophiliac, or for those of you not versed in Greek root words, lover of wine. Part I: Booze goes underground in Glendale Calling it a storage facility is doing it a disservice and, frankly, insulting. Its utterly charming, dark and cold quarters are where a select group of Angelenos store the finest of wines, escaping their busy lives up above, retreating underground and transporting themselves to a long-forgotten era with just a knock on a wooden door.

NORTHRIDGE — For weeks of tournament play, it had been aggressive at the plate, efficient on the mound and sound on defense. The Crescenta Valley 9- and 10-year-old All-Star squad needed to continue the same style of play for one more day to advance to the championship game of the Section 2 Tournament. Unfortunately for the locals, its approach, especially at the plate, did not produce a win Monday. Crescenta Valley managed six hits, only two of which came after the first inning, in a 6-2 loss to Sherman Oaks, ending its season with a second-chance bracket loss at Northridge Little League Fields.
