American Legion Baseball : Henson Finds the Groove in Panorama City Victory

June 15, 1989

Left-hander Sean Henson gave up two singles and a triple to the first three batters he faced but settled down to finish with a six-hitter as Panorama City defeated North Hollywood, 4-3, in a District 20 Eastern Division game at Monroe High on Wednesday.

Henson (2-1) gave up three runs in the first inning on a two-run triple by Duane Braxton and a sacrifice fly by Harry Marks but struck out six and walked two the rest of the way.

Dave Garcia scored the winning run for Panorama City (5-2) in the fourth when Joe Cascione's ground ball was booted for an error.
