Sergei Aftandelian La Crescenta's Brian King stepped to the plate with two outs, representing the tying run in the bottom of the seventh inning Saturday night. His team had just squandered a three-run lead and was hoping for a comeback of its own. King pounded a 1-0 pitch to the deepest part of Dunsmore Park, only to have it caught at the base of the center-field fence, giving Torrance a 7-5 victory in an opening-round game of the Babe Ruth 14-year-old Southern California State Tournament.

Sergei Aftandelian La Canada starting pitcher Brian Clark and Torrance starter Ryan Wheeler were a study in contrast in a Babe Ruth 14-year-old Southern California State Tournament game at Dunsmore Park. Clark did not overpower hitters, instead relying on precise pitch locations in keeping batters off-balanced, while Wheeler threw blistering fastballs at La Canada batters, mixed in with a knee-bending curve. For three innings, both pitchers were on top of their games, as the teams were deadlocked in a scoreless battle.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — La Crescenta’s four-game run in the Babe Ruth 13-15-year old State All-Star Tournament began with a shutout loss to Torrance on Saturday and ended the same way in the semifinal round on Tuesday evening. For the second time in four days, Torrance ace Ralph Ramirez kept La Crescenta’s batters anxious and off-balance at the plate, turning in a three-hit complete game effort to pace a 9-0 win Tuesday at Stengel Field in the wake of an equally impressive 7-0 blanking on Saturday at Stengel.

For nearly the first half of its game Tuesday night, the members of the La Crescenta 15-year-old Babe Ruth team appeared to have things in order. Unfortunately for La Crescenta, it lost its traction and saw its season come to a close with a 15-5 loss against Westchester in an elimination contest of the Babe Ruth Southern California State Tournament at Kendall Field in Torrance. The game was called in the bottom of the sixth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. “We got off to a great start and we were able to hang in there,” La Crescenta Coach Glenn Pawlik said.

GLENDALE — Just a day removed from staving off elimination to the tune of a 15-run offensive, it was the La Crescenta 15-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star squad that was on the wrong end of an offensive onslaught. La Crescenta gave its best in rallying from an early double-digit deficit, but it wasn’t enough to stay alive, as Torrance prevailed, 13-7, to eliminate the locals in Friday night’s Babe Ruth 15-year-old Southern California All-Star Tournament at Stevenson Field in El Segundo.

GLENDALE — Their stellar high school careers came to an end. For the second consecutive year, Sarah Salvo and Christine Cho saw their bid to compete in the WSCGA-CIF State Championship fall just short. Salvo fired a four-over-par 76 and Cho carded an 80 on Monday at the CIF-Women’s Southern California Golf Assn. Championship at The SCGA Golf Course in Murrieta. The top six scores from non-qualifying teams from Monday’s 18-hole round qualified for the state championship, which will take place at 8 a.m. Thursday at Poppy Hills Country Club in Pebble Beach.

They ran themselves out of a number of innings and they almost ran out of pitching, but they never ran out of heart, determination and most important, ways to win. For the third time in as many games, the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 14-year-old All-Stars battled back from an early deficit to force extra innings, relying on gutty efforts from their pitchers, timely contact from their hitters and a never-say-die attitude....

BURBANK - The Glendale High girls' water polo squad took a double dip into the pool of competition at the fifth annual Burbank Tournament to open its season and ended up with a perfect day in Pool D play. On Friday, Glendale first took to the pool to face fellow Pacific League member Arcadia in a pre-league engagement that ended in a 7-2 Nitros win. “It was a great way to start the season,” Glendale Coach Forest Holbrook said of the victory against the Apaches. “Our girls have been working since August and it's nice to see them being rewarded with a win to start off the season.” Next up was West High of Torrance, which also defeated the Apaches, as the Nitros looked to go for the win in the three-team Pool D Friday evening.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Marcel Martinez can spot a quality pitching performance. Martinez, the coach of the La Crescenta 15-year-old All-Star baseball team, got right to the point Tuesday night after watching Torrance pitcher Shane Smith repeatedly tie up his players' bats in knots and end their season. "Shane threw a great game," said Martinez, whose team suffered a 4-0 loss to Torrance in the if-necessary championship contest at Stengel Field. "He just kept us off-balance.

GLENDALE — With a history of playoff triumph and ascension, it seems as though nothing is impossible for the St. Francis soccer team once it enters the postseason. The Golden Knights, having finished fourth for a second straight season in the Mission League and having entered the postseason with a losing record, once more proved the aforementioned theory on Thursday afternoon. On the strength of a match-tying penalty kick from Max Cadena with less than two minutes remaining in regulation and a game-winning score in the sixth round of penalty kicks by Sean Fitzpatrick, St. Francis emerged with a 1-1 (5-4)
