Temple City (5-1) scored all three runs in the sixth inning and the Rams’ Christian Cano got things started. He walked to lead off the inning and Brenden Pultz got on after getting hit by the pitcher. San Marino was keeping Cano on check at second and Chris Warren overthrew to second, moving Cano to third and Pultz to second. Ruben Jara doubled to bring hom Cano and Pultz to make it 2-0 and Morgan Hatch’s triple brought home Jara from second to make it 3-0. The Titans (5-2) threatened in the seventh but to no avail as Stevie Yortsos’ check swing was called a strike to record San Marino’s third and final out. More on this game by staff writer Miguel A. Melendez. That would be me.
Monrovia (5-2) recorded seven runs off La Caada pitcher Jeff Oechsec to jump to a 7-0 lead in the opening inning. Chris Calver hit a two-run homer to cap a 3-run fifth inning and increase Monrovia’s lead to 10-0 at that point. The Wildcats scored again twice in the seventh to extend their three-game winning streak and hand the Spartans (6-1) their first loss. Ironically, Monrovia recorded just one strikeout while La Caada struck out eight. More on this game in tomorrow’s sports section by correspondent Mario Aguirre.

Well, so much for thinking President Obama knows what he’s talking about. I’m almost certain the Secret Service, CIA and FBI will come for me moments after this publishes for sticking it to our beloved president. But the truth of the matter is Mr. Obama was wrong as were the many pundits who picked UCLA to lose in the first round. Let it be known: Mr. Obama went 11-5 in his first round predictions and I went 14-2. Don’t believe me? Click here to check out my bracket on ESPN.com … Maybe I should get offered a Cabinet post. Hey, I pay my taxes! Now, all we need is for USC to lose and I’m all set. It’s not too late for yall to jump on the Bruins bandwagon and ride them all the way to the Final Four. Go Bruins!
