Baseball: It’s over, Nogales scores on a sac fly in the bottom of the eighth to beat San Dimas 1-0 and win the Valle Vista League title.

A pitcher’s duel is the last thing anybody who saw Wednesday’s slugfest between Nogales and San Dimas high schools expected in a showdown for the Valle Vista League championship.

But that’s exactly what San Dimas’ Shawn Kennedy and Nogales’ Caleb Rodusky staged Friday. With neither starter willing to budge, the game fittingly was decided on a sacrifice fly by Jorge Manzo that scored Adrian Guzman and gave Nogales a 1-0 win in eight innings and outright ownership of the league title.

As usual, the Montview League baseball race wasn’t decided until the final day of the regular season.

Duarte High School knocked off first-place Sierra Vista 6-5 on Friday with a game-winning single in the bottom of the seventh inning by sophomore Sergio Garcia.

    DeHorta pitched great game, finished by Ty France. Chapman threw a four hitter and De Horta – France combined for a two-hitter. SH scored in first, Sheehan walk, CJ bloop single, France bomb to straight away CF, kid made great catch Sheehan tagged to third. Dlugos hard top spin grounder to second, off his glove, Sheehan scores, Saylor thrown out at 3B. In fifth, CJ hits smash by 3B, France blasts a 3-2 shot by SS, CJ moving on pitch is able to score.

    Take your talk about the other teams somewhere else.. This posting is about the Nogales Nobles and their hard earned Valle Vista Title. Either congratulate these boys for a title well deserved, or take your childish banter somewhere else.

    Ease up on the ‘childish’ rap.

    VVL is weak. Nobles also weak.

    Congrats on climbing to the top of your trash heap.

    Congrats to NOGALES, Coach Romano is one of the Truly CLASS ACTS in the valley and a great baseball man. He deserves all of this as do his players !!!!!

    OK, been a great HS season, have not seen any of it unfortunately this year…. but I just have one question and it goes to 2 different HS coaches…

    Do the local HS teams teach their players how to BUNT ??? Have you heard of a SQUEEZE play, or safety SQUEEZE to WIN A BALL GAME….

    “””San Dimas’ best chance came in the eighth with runners on second and third and one out. Daniel Millwee hit a grounder to short and Guzman threw out Kennedy at the plate. The next hitter flew out to shallow right.””””

    Same thing happened last week for South Hills, Smitty could have won a game and the league championship an inning or so earlier if they impart the most basic of all baseball plays.

    I’m just wondering, last week, ok, and it ended up not biting the team in the rear, but this one possibly cost a team the league Championship.

    Let the bashing begin…(of me that is).
