Jumping in here for FredJ … Here’s the box score from the Del Rey League series finale between La Salle and Bishop Amat. It pretty much tells the story, but I’ll write one anyway. Just as an FYI, the story will not appear in the paper because of space issues. Think of it as a blog exclusive from yours truly.

PASADENA — It was over before it ever began.
Bishop Amat pounded La Salle with four home runs and a 14-run lead in just three innings, completing the Del Rey Leauge series sweep with a 14-1 win in five innings Friday afternoon at La Salle.
La Salle (10-6, 5-3) will have to wait until next season for a chance to earn its first ever win over Bishop Amat (14-2, 8-0) in league history. That La Salle was going to have to wait until then was made very clear from the beginning.
Bishop Amat loaded the bases in the first and Jay Anderson jumped on the first pitch for a grand slam to start the offensive explosion. Fellow senior Rio Ruiz connected for a two-run double in the second and followed it up with a three-run home run in the third to make it a rout. Ryan Serrato and Bernardo Zavala also homered for Bishop Amat.
La salle coach Harry Agajanian was clearly upset with La Salle’s inability to get up for a game despite taking Bishop Amat to nine innings before losing 3-2 earlier this week.
“It was miserable,” he said. “It was disgusting and I’m embarrassed for our team and I’m embarrassed for myself and the school on our performance today.”
Bishop Amat coach Andy Nieto said that the field dimensions paved the way for home runs.
“Maybe a couple of them hit the gap, but a few of them are definitely caught (at Bishop Amat),” he said. “It’s one of those games you hope you never get to at this park when you deal with those kind of parameters.”
