It was a case of too much pitching. On one side was Woodland Hills West, whose pitcher, Lance Gibson, recorded his first complete game since February. On the other was Woodland Hills East, which entered the game without two of its top pitchers: Eric Rothman injured his left hand last Saturday and Chris Brown left for Italy on a family vacation Tuesday morning . So it was no surprise that Gibson led West to a 10-4 rout Wednesday night at Taft High. In going the distance, Gibson improved his record to 5-0. "Lance pitched a good game," said West Coach Gary Gibson, Lance's father.

Allen Klevens and Jason Shapiro don't spin vinyl at parties or nightclubs, but they might just be the ultimate DJs. If you've checked into a Marriott recently, eaten at Wolfgang Puck's Cut or gotten a facial at Spa Nordstrom, you've probably heard their mixes. It's a science, said Klevens, a former musician who started his Woodland Hills-based Prescriptive Music business by compiling and peddling soothing CDs for surgeons to play in operating rooms.

Taft High hitters found a good way to spend small change, choosing to play out their Field of Dreams instead of watching someone else's at the movies. Jason Shapiro, Brett Reisner, Glenn Nahmias, Adam Zutler and Mike Kimelman spent a handful of quarters at a batting cage Thursday and their small investment paid huge dividends in the first round of the City Section 4-A Division playoffs at Taft. The five players combined for nine hits and drove in six runs to help the Toreadors defeat Van Nuys, 9-1, Friday.

Brett Reisner came through in the fifth with his glove, and then with his bat. And thanks to his efforts, his Woodland Hills East teammates are alive to play another day in the District 20 playoffs. Reisner made an over-the-shoulder catch in left field to save at least two runs and then lined a two-run single in the bottom of the inning to lead East to a 5-1 win Friday over Encino-Crespi in a third-round consolation-bracket at Pierce College.

For the City Section All-Star baseball team, the humor in Thursday night's game against the Orange County All-Stars could not have been accurately measured by a laugh-o-meter. The number of errors committed gave a much more precise gauge. The City team made six miscues in an 8-2 loss to Orange County at USC's Dedeaux Field. All the Orange County runs were unearned. "Does that say six or eight?," City 4-A Player of the Year Gino Tagliaferri of Kennedy High said as he looked at the right-field score board.

Chatsworth High won a duel in the sun Tuesday with visiting Taft, as the Chancellors recorded a 5-4 victory to move into sole possession of first place in the West Valley League. For Chatsworth senior right fielder Nick Schultz, however, it was more of a duel with the sun. Schultz, black shoe polish smeared heavily beneath his eyes, smiled broadly after squeezing Brett Reisner's lazy fly ball to end the game and douse Taft's four-run rally. "Brutal," he said.

In other baseball games: Monroe 6, Reseda 6 (forfeit)--Reseda forfeited the game when pitcher Tony Valdez faked an injury in the bottom of the eighth inning of the Mid-Valley League contest at Monroe. According to Monroe Coach Kevin Campbell, Reseda Coach Steve Stone did not want Valdez to pitch in the eighth inning, but Valdez had taken his warm-up pitches and was therefore required to pitch to at least one batter.
