Maybe we don’t pay enough attention to the Montview League. Check this out, Sierra Vista High School’s Christian Huerta has been one of the most dominant pitchers in the area the past few weeks. Thursday, he showed how dominant, throwing the school’s first no-hitter in more than a decade in a 7-0 victory over Workman. Huerta, who just missed throwing a no-hitter lat week against Duarte, also STRUCK OUT 18 to improve to 4-2. He walked two batters. Sierra Vista improved to 10-4 and 5-1. Huerta becomes the first Dons pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Pete Flores in 1995. Flores threw five consecutive shutouts that season. “He should have two in a row,” Dons coach Brett Stevens said of Huerta. “He had one going last week when they bunted with us leading 24-0. He had 10 strikeouts in that game.” Question: At 10-4, should Sierra Vista crack the top ten rankings.
Correspondent John Honell called to thank me (sarcastically) for sending him to Thursday’s Chino Hills-Damien marathon. Chino Hills won 16-8 as Damien walked 11 in the first three innings alone.
