Littlerock Finishes Sweep of Palmdale

May 13, 2000|From Staff Reports

Last-place Littlerock High didn't figure to beat Golden League champion Palmdale for the second time in three days Friday.

Especially with Falcon ace Matt Harrington, perhaps the region's best pitcher, starting.

But Littlerock completed a two-game sweep when Delwyn Young was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the seventh inning, giving the host Lobos a 3-2 victory.

Joe Masiello pitched a five-hitter for Littlerock (5-23, 2-13 in league play), striking out five and walking none.

Harrington pitched five innings, striking out 11. The score was tied, 2-2, when he left.

Palmdale is 18-4, 12-3.

Lancaster 2, Quartz Hill 1--Doug Lee (3-0) pitched a four-hitter with six strikeouts in a Golden League game to deny visiting Quartz Hill (11-12, 6-9) a chance for a .500 record and an at-large playoff berth.

Kevin Finch singled in Josh Pratt in the second and fourth innings for the Eagles (15-10, 9-6).

Highland 11, Antelope Valley 2--Jason Kubel hit two home runs and the Bulldogs (19-6, 11-4) won a Golden League game at Highland.

Kubel has hit seven home runs and driven in 20 runs in the last four games.

Canyon 4, Valencia 3--Chris Seddon threw a four-hitter with 11 strikeouts and the host Cowboys (13-7-1, 9-5-1) won a Foothill League game.

Canyon scored three runs on wild pitches.

Oak Park 5, St. Bonaventure 4--Mike Wasserman's sacrifice fly drove in the go-ahead run in a four-run sixth inning for the Eagles (8-14, 6-6) in a Tri-Valley game at Oak Park.

St. Bonaventure (17-4-1, 10-2) had two errors in the sixth and left the bases loaded five times.

Santa Paula 8, Carpinteria 3--David Garcia and Aaron Segovia each homered for the host Cardinals (10-12) in a nonleague victory.

Viewpoint 6, Windward 4--Nick McKay had two hits and three runs batted in, and Nick Fries pitched a five-hitter to help Viewpoint (12-6, 7-3) clinch its sixth consecutive Liberty League title at Windward.
