UPDATE: I left the game in the fifth inning but I was informed Arcadia had five runners left on base in the last two innings, losing, 5-4, to Beverly Hills on Monday night in round-robyn play in the Apache Invitational. In the bottom of the seventh, Smoley was up with two runners on first and second, but he flied out to end the inning. This is the Apaches’ first loss of the season, this after moving up a few spots in the latest Los Angeles Times’ Top 25 Baseball Poll. This probably means we won’t have an area team playing for the championship game Wednesday night.
Kyle Schneider is pitching for Arcadia. Beverly Hills is leading, 4-3, as we head into the top of the fifth. Some questionable calls but the Apaches shoulder some blame, too. I think that’s it for me tonight guys. I wrote a big story that will run in A1 tomorrow. Just filed my St. Francis-Nogales gamer that will be in the sports section tomorrow. Talk to yall tomorrow.
A missed double-play led to a three-run home run by Beverly Hills, taking a 3-0 lead against Arcadia and we’re only in the top of the first.
St. Francis loaded the bases three times and got stung twice, losing, 7-6, to Nogales in round-robyn play Monday night in the Arcadia Invitational at Arcadia High. Nogales scored four runs on four hits in the third inning and added two more in the sixth to tie and take the lead for good. It’s too bad for the Golden Knights. They are now on a five-game losing streak, this after getting off to a 2-0 lead here early in the game. The game was running late because of a thriller pitting Glendora vs. San Dimas, Glendora winning, 8-7, in the bottom of the 10th on a Cody Regis double. It’s 8 p.m. and the Arcadia game is about to get underway. They’re putting away the hoses and getting ready to look at tonight’s lineups. Not meeting the Nurse tonight so I might stick around for the Arcadia game. Keyword: might….
