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.

Ever since the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament schedule was unveiled, it was Wednesday's game that loomed largest for the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 14-year-old baseball team. La Crescenta was a late addition to the regional lineup, following another team dropping out, after the locals lost a pair of games to Westchester to finish runner-up in the Southern California State All-Star Tournament. The locals got one more shot at Westchester in their final pool-play game of the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament at Surprise Stadium in Arizona.

GLENDALE — While never leaving La Mesa, the Crescenta Valley High Junior Softball All-Stars still managed to take one more big step eastward. Crescenta Valley moved one win away from advancing to the Regional Tournament in Tucson when it defeated Westchester, 8-3, in the semifinal game of the Junior Softball Southern California State Tournament on Tuesday. Overcoming errors that led to an early deficit, the Section 2 champions thrived on a strong six-inning performance from starting pitcher Olivia Thayer and a key three-run home run by Tiffany Briscoe to reach the state championship game at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — What appeared to be a victory quickly turned into a heart-breaking defeat Friday night. Now, the members of the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 14-year-old All-Star team will have no choice but to regroup quickly after they surrendered three runs in the top of the seventh inning in a 7-6 loss to Westchester in an opening-round contest of the Southern California All-Star Tournament at Stengel Field. La Crescenta, which will meet Simi Valley in an elimination game at 4 p.m. today at Stengel Field, squandered a 6-0 lead through four innings before Westchester awoke.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Moments after the season concluded for the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth All-Star team, Coach Manny Amit reflected briefly on the one inning that derailed his team. "Looking back on it, we had just that one bad inning," Amit said, referring to the second inning in which La Crescenta yielded eight runs en route to an 11-3 loss to Westchester on Monday night in the if-necessary championship game of the Babe Ruth State Tournament at Stengel Field. 'It's just one of those things and we just didn't have the pitching.

LA CRESCENTA - A day after scoring 31 runs on 22 hits, it figured the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team would come back to earth in championship bracket action of the State All-Star Tournament on Friday evening. Yet, La Crescenta's return to normalcy was more like a crash, as the home team was three-hit by a trio of pitchers in an 8-0 loss to District 2 champion Westchester at Dunsmore Park. The defeat cast District 4 champion La Crescenta into the consolation bracket in an elimination game versus Heartwell of Long Beach at Stengel Field on Saturday evening at 7. Westchester advanced to Sunday's 4 p.m. final at Stengel Field and will face the winner of Heartwell-La Crescenta.

The Crescenta Valley Junior Softball All-Stars committed two errors on the same play during their Wednesday sub-divisional game, allowing host Westchester to score the game's winning runs. Crescenta Valley fell, 3-1. "They haven't done anything like that, even in the regular season, too much," said Crescenta Valley Coach Dave Fox of the defensive letdown. "I don't know what that was." Against Westchester, Crescenta Valley put itself in a great position to come out victorious yet it could not recover from those two unearned runs.

Charles Rich With the number of outs dwindling, the Crescenta Valley Major Softball team didn't panic. With some intestinal fortitude, Crescenta Valley kept its season alive with a dominant late-inning offensive display. Crescenta Valley scored five runs in the top of the fifth inning to earn a come-from-behind 12-7 victory against Westchester in the if-necessary championship contest of the Division 3 Tournament at Central Little League Field on Wednesday night.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Four straight at-bats saw La Crescenta’s Ted Boeke only an out away from sending his team to Eureka and euphoria. Then he found himself just one strike away. That final strike came — and then got away. But Riley Sullivan tracked it down and promptly turned catastrophe into jubilance, as Sullivan’s long throw from the third-base side of home plate to first got there just in front of Westchester runner Hayden Boehle for the final out of the game, giving La Crescenta a 2-0 victory in the championship game of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Southern California All-Star Tournament at Stengel Field on Tuesday evening.

GLENDALE - Scoring runs throughout the postseason seemed to come natural for the members of the Crescenta Valley-Foothill All-Star Junior softball team. Crescenta Valley-Foothill, which also features players from Burbank, entered the Southern California Championship Division III Tournament red hot after scoring 65 runs in its first four games en route to winning the District 16 and Section 2 tournaments. While Crescenta Valley-Foothill carried that success over in the beginning of the division tournament, it ran into some quality pitching Tuesday and Wednesday.

One way or another, the road to Surprise, Ariz. would have to go through Westchester, but, despite two valiant efforts, the Southern California powerhouse was once again just too much for the Glendale 14-Year-Old Babe Ruth Baseball Team.

COLTON — On the doorstep of advancing to the Western Regional, the Foothill Major All-Star softball team appeared to have things in control. Throughout most of its playoff run, Foothill excelled in every facet of the game. In order to get to that next step, Foothill had to overcome an opponent that proved to be a worthy challenge. Unfortunately for Foothill, Westchester Del Ray came in as good as advertised and derailed its championship aspirations. Foothill saw its season conclude with a 12-0 loss to Westchester on Wednesday night in the if-necessary championship game of the Southern California State Championship at Ken Hubbs Little League Field.
