Let’s just say you had to see this one to believe it.
South Pasadena raced out to a 7-1 lead after two, but Nichole Parada was pulled after two innings. Temple City took advantage and scored eight runs on just one hit and six walks to take a 9-7 lead after three. The Tigers tied it with a pair of runs in the fourth, and took the lead for good in the fifth on a pair of two-run homers by Michelle Mun and Amanda Castro.
Temple City is still in the driver’s seat for the league championship, but the Tigers remained just one game back behind La Canada, a 2-1 winner in eight innings over Monrovia, for second.
