Baseball: Sierra Vista and La Puente headed for an old-fashioned showdown in May

Sierra Vista did everything they could to interrupt my Lakers plans on Wednesday, using almost four hours to rally from a 5-2 deficit in the seventh inning to tie it 5-5, sending it into extra innings, like I needed more of that blistering sun. But it was worth it, the Dons completed the thrilling comeback with a 6-5 victory in 11 innings when Christian Huerta’s game-winning double brought home Michael Lomeli for the game-winner. With La Puente’s 15-5 win over Workman, the Montview League is beginning two shape into a two-team race. La Puente (10-5, 6-1) and Sierra Vista (12-5, 6-1) are tied for first and will meet in a home and home on May 5 and 7, which could very well determine the league champion.
