BASEBALL: Rutherford calms Tornadoes

Arcadia junior pitcher Bryce Rutherford (4-1) struck out 14 batters and added a double to lead the Apaches to a 4-0 road victory over Hoover on Tuesday. Rutherford has now won four straight decisions since an opening-day loss at Alhambra.

Question: How good is this guy and how much better can he get? I know he was impressive when I saw him against Alhambra.
