Baseball: Hill, Derby lead La Salle to 3-2 win over Covina


La Salle’s Brian Hill pitched six solid innings and Bowdien Derby scored two runs and recorded the save in the seventh to lead the Lancers to a 3-2 win over Covina in the wild-card round of the CIF-Southern Section Division 4 playoffs Tuesday afternoon. Johnny Auer sent 2 for 4 with two RBIs to lead La Salle (14-12), which moves on to Friday’s first-round game against five-time defending Rio Hondo League champion Monrovia. Derby, a sophomore, was hit by a pitch in the first, scored a run in that inning, singled and scored in the fourth, drew a walk in the fifth to load the bases and was intentionally walked in the seventh. He struck out the first batter in the seventh on three pitches and got the next two batters to fly out to record his third save of the season.


PALOS VERDES 11, PASADENA 1: The Bulldogs gave up six runs with two outs in the first inning and another three runs with one out in the second to all but end Pasadena’s season.

LA CAADA 20, COSTA MESA 2: The Spartans scored 10 runs in the first inning and junior pitcher Brendon Shoemake pitched only the first inning. He’ll rest his arm and go again Friday when the Spartans visit St. Paul in Division 4 first-round action.
