Cornerstone Christian (2010) and Santa Maria St. Joseph (1997-98) also won 30 straight. Lompoc and Rio Mesa share the all-time record with 36 consecutive wins. Saints junior Jacob Castillo struck out 13 Argonauts and threw a no-hitter to pick up his 11th win of the season. Walnut, the hottest team other than San Dimas, won its 16th straight scoring three runs in the bottom of the sixth to pull it out. Bishop Amat trailed 3-0 early, then exploded to win easily. Bonita, which finished third in the Palomares league, shocked San Gabriel Valley league champion Gahr, 7-2, and now will get top-seed San Clemente, a 10-1 winner over Dos Pueblos. Damien, the Cinderella story after knocking off Glendora in a thriller last Friday, watched its season end in a 7-1 loss to Royal.
