South Hills’ 5-4 victory over Glendora sets the stage for Thursday’s winner-take-all at Glendora

shills
By Fred Robledo
South Hills has struggled so much to score runs to complement its dominant pitching staff that coach Darren Murphy couldn’t care less how it pushes runs across.
It took four walks and three Glendora errors for the Huskies to score four runs in the third inning on Tuesday, and that was the difference in a crucial 5-4 victory for South Hills to move it a half-game ahead of Glendora for first in the Palomares League with one to play.
“You can’t be picky,” said Murphy, whose Huskies had only three hits. “We’re not really looking for style runs, we’re looking for just runs. There’s been some big scores, some low scores, but it’s the team that bounces back and does what it has to do that’s going to win this thing.”
South Hills (19-7-1, 9-4-1) knew going into the final week before the playoffs it would need a sweep over Glendora (21-7, 9-5) to win the league title.The Huskies’ victory sets the stage for Thursday, when they meet the Tartans again at Glendora for the outright league title.

San Dimas, ranked No. 1 in the country by USA Today, improved to 27-0 with 13-0 win over Wilson

Monday Update: San Dimas moved to 27-0 with a 13-0 victory over Wilson on Monday to match Bishop Amat’s San Gabriel Valley record of 27 consecutive victories set in 1993. San Dimas can break the record and head to the Division 3 playoffs undefeated with another victory over Wilson on Wednesday at home with Peter Lambert on the bump.

USA TODAY NO. 1: baserecordSan Dimas baseball’s historic season has it ranked No. 1 in the country by USA Today’s Top 25 National rankings that was updated May 6. San Dimas is 26-0 following a 9-0 win over Rowland on Thursday, leaving it one game shy of matching Bishop Amat’s 1993 San Gabriel Valley record for consecutive baseball victories with 27. Bishop Amat didn’t win the championship that year, but its 27 straight wins is eighth all-time in the CIF record books. Lompoc owns the CIF record for consecutive wins with 36 set in the 1970-71 season.
Assuming San Dimas can win its next two games, which includes a pair next week against Wilson with a chance to close out the Valle Vista League undefeated, San Dimas would head to the CIF-SS Division 3 playoffs with a perfect record and not just a chance to win a D-3 crown, but an opportunity to win a USA Today National title.
