Monday's Mission League showdown between Loyola and Harvard-Westlake lived up to the hype--and then some. The only thing it lacked was a winner. The game was called because of darkness moments after Quinn Brodey scored on Cole Malloy's fielder's choice to give Loyola a 4-3 lead with two outs in the top of the 11th inning. The count was 1-0 to the next batter, Angelo Armenta, when the plate umpire suspended play. Games ended by darkness during an inning revert back to the score at the end of the preceding inning, thus the outcome was a 3-3 tie at O'Malley Family Field in Encino.

 Right now, it's smart to have a son of a former Granada Hills Kennedy player on your roster. They usually turn out pretty good. At Harvard-Westlake, Tyler Urbach is a starter and the son of former Kennedy player Doug Urbach. At North Hollywood, Tyson Turner is the standout outifelder with 20 stolen bases for the first-place Huskies in the East Valley League and the son of former Kennedy outfielder Dain Turner. He's six steals away from the school record. His father was a quick leadoff hitter in his playing days in the 1980s at Kennedy.

"I think the umpire at home plate should not call balls and strikes. I think they should have a force field over home plate and if the pitcher throws and the ball touches the force field a little bell goes off and it's a strike. " Mike Schmidt , Hall of Fame slugger, when asked during a radio interview what he would change about baseball. "And they should let us have a shot to kick them with our metal spikes on, because it's stupid. " Adam Jones , Baltimore outfielder, after saying he wished police had tased two people who ran on the field at Yankee Stadium while the Orioles were on defense.
