Arcadia beats Glendale 14-3 to go 13-0 in the Pacific League heading into the league finale on the road at rival Crescenta Valley. I was supposed to have Friday off because of a hectic schedule this week, but I adjusted my schedule a bit to make sure our presence is there and capture history in the making. I really hope, though, we’re not a bad omen by writing so much about it this week. I hear it’s taco night at CV, true? Anyway, I’m waiting to see on MaxPreps whether Alhambra also clinched its sixth straight Almont League title, but no result just yet as I write this at 12:08 a.m.
After a rough start to the season, getting battered around and run up on, Gabrielino gets back into form just in time to win its fourth straight Mission Valley League title with a 6-1 win over El Monte. Sophomore pitching sensation Angel Acosta broke the single-season school record with his ninth win of the season. He threw six innings and struck out 11 while giving up only three hits. Acosta also broke the single-season hits mark with 33. Catcher Keith Clapp broke the school RBI mark with 25 after going 2 for 3 with three RBIs, which included an RBI double, a squeeze and an RBI single.
