 To say that Long Beach Wilson has pitching depth might be an understatement. On Saturday, the Bruins defeated Agoura, 1-0, in 12 innings. On Tuesday night in a Moore League opener against Long Beach Jordan, Wilson won, 4-3, in 15 innings. The Bruins were so exhausted after getting the winning run in the 15th inning that players walked out of the dugout to celebrate. Tyler Radcliffe, who was supposed to start Friday against Lakewood, threw nine shutout innings of relief with 10 strikeouts.

Riccio, 46, replaces Bill Sanchez, who resigned in March, saying he was frustrated with a lack of administrative support for the program.

Agoura High Coach Frank Greminger was sure his team would have to pass the ball to beat Newbury Park on Friday night, which meant he needed a big game from quarterback Scott Heflin. But, when Heflin injured the thumb on his throwing hand, Greminger turned in desperation to his defense. "I just didn't know what we were going to do," he said.
