Upland edges Rancho Cucamonga 3-2 in battle finale

The Upland Highlanders pushed across three runs in the fourth and that held up for a 3-2 win over Rancho Cucamonga in the final game of the Battle of the Baseline Saturday night at LoanMart Field.

The win means the Higlanders (15-9, 7-6) head into the last week of play tied for third with Los Osos but just one game behind leaders Chino Hills and Etiwanda.

Senior right-hander Jeff Kross went the distance on the mound, giving up just four hits and striking out five. Both the runs he allowed in the sixth were unearned.

Kross and Grant Ponder singled to start the fourth. Junior Fregoso then hit a sacrifice fly scoring Kross. Another sacrifice fly, this one by Ryan Almondinger, drove home Ponder. The third run of the contest came home on a single by Ryan Rodriguez.

Upland wraps up the season with two games against Etiwanda so it controls its own fate.

Rancho Cucamonga’s last two games are against Damien which is fighting for a playoff berth as well.

Bailey Falter leads Chino Hills to a 4-3 win over Etiwanda

VIDEO: Baily Falter talks about his outing vs. Etiwanda

Bailey Falter returned from a nearly one-month layoff and pitched the Chino Hills Huskies to a 4-3 win over Etiwanda on Saturday in the second game of the Battle of the Baseline at LoanMart Field.

The win moved Chino Hills (15-8, 8-5) into a first-place tie with Etiwanda (16-6, 8-5), whom it beat for the second time in as many tries.

The three games between the teams this season were decided by a total of four runs.

Falter went the distance on the mound and struck out nine, including the side in the seventh. He gave up four hits, two of those coming in the third when Etiwanda manufactured two of its three runs.

Chino Hills went ahead for the first time with three in the bottom of that inning. Justin Bardwell doubled home a run and Elijah Greene got home another
with a sacrifice fly.

Jason Wallace stroked a towering home run to left for Etiwanda to tie it again in the sixth.

That tie was short-lived as Chino Hills got the decisive run in the bottom of the frame on a bunt single by Just Chavez.

Los Osos downs Damien 4-1 in Battle of Baseline opener

Kyle Robenial of Los Osos talks about his outing

VIDEO: Zach Cooper of Los Osos talks about win

Los Osos got another stellar pitching performance from senior Kyle Robeniol and rode that to a 4-1 win over Damien Saturday morning in the first game of the Battle of the Baseline at LoanMart Field.

Robeniol, a University of Oregon commit, went the distance allowing just two hits and striking out seven.

He had a shutout until the seventh when Damien got its lone run.

“We feel good any time he’s out there. We know he’s going to give us a chance to win,” Los Osos coach Chris Romero said. “He did what we needed him to do today because we needed this game.”

The Grizzlies (10-13, 7-6) collected six hits. Zach Cooper had a pair of run-scoring singles, the first pushing home the first run of the game. His other one came in the seventh and rounded out the scoring.

Davis Moore had a two-run single in the seventh for his teams third and fourth runs.

Damien (8-14, 6-7) managed just two hits. It’s lone run came in the seventh when Andrew Garcia doubled and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Grant Woodward.

The Spartans got off to a 3-11 start after three key injuries to the pitching staff. They had won five of their last seven coming in to put themselves in contention for a playoff berth.

“We still feel good about where we’re at,” first-year coach Andy Nieto said. “We control our destiny. Out guys didn’t get down when everything was working against us early. They kept battling.”

Battle of Baseline baseball games loom huge

Displaying 0507_SPO_IDB-L-BaselineBB-3.jpg

It is once again it is time for the big Battle of the Baseline League with all six teams playing on the same day in the same venue – LoanMart Field in Rancho Cucamonga.

It is always a memorable experience for the players involved but the fact that these games are so important in the league race will make for an even better day.

Here’s the schedule and a look at each game:

Damien (8-13, 6-6) vs. Los Osos (9-13, 6-6), 11 a.m.
These two teams are currently part of a three-way tie for third. Few probably expected Damien to be in this position after the Spartans got off to a 3-11 start on the season but the Spartans have won five of the last seven games to surge into contention.

Sophomore right-hander Isaiah Paige will be on the mound for Damien which has wins this season over Los Osos by scores of 3-1 and 1-0.

The Spartans have also gotten steady production from sophomore third baseman Harrison Spohn, senior catcher Andrew Garcia and junior outfielder Daniel Benedict.

Senior Kyle Robeniol (.440) has been the top hitter and pitcher for Los Osos and will be on the mound. Senior third baseman Niko Navarro (.323) is the other big contributor.

Etiwanda (16-5, 8-4) vs. Chino Hills (14-8, 7-5), 2 p.m.

The Eagles are in first place, one game ahead of the Huskies so this one will either give Etiwanda a two-game lead or allow Chino Hills to pull even with two games left.

Chino Hills will have ace Bailey Falter (4-1, 0.93) on the mound for the first time since April 15. He has been away from the team for disciplinary reasons.

Senior right fielder Chris Ceballos (.379, 14 RBI, 6 HR) and senior designated hitter Konnor Zickefoos (.500, 6 HR, 21 RB) have been the catalysts of the offense.

Etiwanda will have Aaron Sheridan (3-2, 4.14) on the mound. Sophomore Tyler Freeman (.400) and senior Kyle Isbel (.381, 24 RBI).

Chino Hills beat Etiwanda 6-4 in eight innings on Wednesday while Etiwanda won the first game between the teams 10-9.

Upland (14-9, 6-6) vs. Rancho Cucamonga  (13-11, 3-9), 5 p.m.
Upland is the third team in the three-way tie for third while Rancho is the only team not playing for anything but pride. The Cougars did pull the 6-4 upset on Wednesday while Upland won the first game between the two 1-0.

The biggest problem for the Cougars has been offense. Junior Tyler Lawson (4-5, 2.29) will be on the mound though and he doesn’t need much when he is on.

Upland will also have its top pitcher on the mound in senior Jeff Kross (4-4, 3.76). Connor Shepherd (.468, 17 RBI) and junior Skyler De Los Reyes (.358) are catalysts of the offense.
