SAN MARINO >> Zech Jarrard was peering onto the San Marino High School baseball field with a Yogi Berra-like grin.
The Temple City center fielder did not bring up Berra’s famous line, “It’s not over until it’s over.” But he was definitely believing, and smiling, about it.
The junior drove in the winning run with a squeeze bunt in the seventh inning to help the visiting Rams to a 4-1 victory over San Marino in a Rio Hondo League opener Friday afternoon.
