Baseball Babe Ruth Phillies 10, Cubs 8 The Cubs battled to the final at-bat but came up short against the tough Phillies. Kevin Stoner?s inside-the-park home run?a deep shot to dead center field that culminated in a thrilling dash home to barely beat the relay?was the offensive highlight. Scott Moulin?s bases-loaded double in the 7th almost brought the Cubs even. Stoner scored three times to lead the Cubs in scoring, while Russell Mansjur scored twice and had two stolen bases.

It was an easy walk in the park for Loyola High?s baseball team on Monday afternoon, as the Cubs took advantage of shaky pitching from the visiting St. Francis Golden Knights (15-10, 5-4) to an 8-3 victory in a key Mission League contest here at Hank Hernandez Memorial Field. Loyola (12-11-1, 3-4) did not have to do too much with its bats, not when St. Francis? pitchers allowed 10 Cubs batters to reach on bases on balls and two more to reach on hit by pitch. In all, each Loyola starter reached base at least once by the fourth inning, with a total of 26 base runners keeping the St. Francis defense busy.

The cub scouts were working on a Go See It badge, which was to be presented to them at the end of their visit. Five scouts participated in the trip. They were: Drake DiPaolo, Mikey Lauenstein, Mikey Lerian, Sheldon Watanabe and Ryan Tsang.

Sometimes it seemed as if goalkeeper Justin Stahl faced the entire Loyola team himself, as the Golden Knights struggled to keep up with the Cubs in a 3-1 loss on Friday. It was the first league road loss of the season for St. Francis. ?We had enough moments, where if we had done some things better, it could have made a difference,? said St. Francis Head Coach Glen Appels. ?But they were definitely the more aggressive team.? The Cubs forced the issue on offense, attacking their own zone and keeping the Golden Knight defense on its heels all game and finding ways to challenge Stahl throughout the contest.

Paradise Canyon Elementary Den 5 Tiger Cubs made a surprise visit to a varsity-wrestling match at La Cañada High School on Jan. 8. The surprise wasn?t from the wrestlers but from the Tiger Cubs. ?We thought there was going to be an eighth grade basketball game,? said den mom/leader Kim Hershman. But they discovered it was not a basketball game but a wrestling meet. At first Hershman was a little concerned about taking very energetic 6- and 7-year-old boys to a wrestling match.

Two dens of Tiger Cub Scouts from Paradise Canyon Elementary School visited the offices of the La Cañada Valley Sun on Friday, Nov. 7. The group consisted of 16 boys and seven adults. “I learned that paper is made out of wood,” said Justin Hershman. “First we played soccer, before going to the Valley Sun,” said Adam Burstine. The cubs also had lunch and walked from Memorial Park to the Valley Sun offices. The visit lasted just a short time because the cubs were eager to get on with their weekend fun. “We had fun visiting the Valley Sun,” said Aaron Smernoff.

Babe Ruth Cardinals 8, Dodgers 7 The Cardinals needed a little luck and some clutch pitching to hold off a tenacious Dodger team. Zane Bodmer singled and scored three runs for the Cards. Justin Higa, Derek Georgino and Nick Kern all hit RBI singles. Anthony Perasso reached base three times in three plate appearances and hurled five strong innings, allowing just two runs. Tommy Bartholetti and Will Orr each singled. Erick Lankey reached base and JC Cooper continues to hit the ball well notching another RBI. We look forward to the 3rd round.
