With a thunderous metal ping, senior and starting catcher Max Schaetzle sent a rocket of a home run into the clouded sky, over the left field fence to powerfully end a 14-run, two-inning streak that shot La Cañada past North Hollywood, 15-4, in the Southern California Invitational on Saturday. The North Hollywood victory followed their late-innings 5-4 win over LA Baptist on Friday, another SoCal Invitational game, and suddenly the Spartans are 2-0 to start the season. La Cañada flexed their muscles.

With Prep League play scheduled to begin next week, Flintridge Prep baseball Coach Buzz Cook would like to have some semblance of a starting pitching staff capable of throwing strikes and getting outs on a consistent basis.

It looked like an impossibility after San Gabriel Valley lost its first game in the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series in Newark, Ohio on Aug. 18. The team would have had to win seven straight games in order to capture the championship, but that's exactly what SGV did. SGV capped its amazing run to the title with a 7-4 win over the team from Licking County, Ohio. The contest ended in dramatic fashion as SGV's Bryan Longpre came to the mound as a reliever in the bottom of the seventh inning with the bases loaded and two outs.
