There's a competitiveness to La Quinta's Jim Livernois that borders on being vindictive when he pitches. Not such a bad thing, really. On the contrary, it has advantages. "Nobody likes to lose," Livernois said. "But I'll get mad if I miss one pitch. If I hang a curve or give up an 0-2 hit, it gets me very upset. I'm out there to win for the team." Livernois, The Times Orange County player of the year, has not let the Aztecs down.

La Quinta continues to lead the Garden Grove League baseball standings, but Friday's 9-1 victory over Bolsa Grande wasn't quite as easy as Coach Dave Demarest would have liked. All of the Aztecs' runs were unearned, and sophomore pitcher Joe Garcia (5-0) got off to a shaky start before four of Bolsa Grande's six errors opened the door in the fourth inning for the defending champion Aztecs (17-3, 8-0 in league) at Bolsa Grande. "We took advantage of their mistakes," Demarest said.

* Today's schedule: La Quinta vs. Tustin, Anaheim Stadium, 1 p.m. * Last year's final: Corona beat Norwalk, 6-3. * Outlook: This is the second championship game for both teams. Neither has won the title. La Quinta lost to Lompoc, 9-2, in 1979. Tustin lost to Whittier La Serna, 1-0, in 1990. . . . La Quinta has relied on Jim Livernois' pitching all season, but especially during the playoffs. He has pitched at least two innings in every playoff game. The Aztecs need one more strong game from him.

On a day when the La Quinta baseball field looked its best, the Aztecs staged an equally impressive rally to beat Woodbridge, 7-5, in a Southern Section Division III game Tuesday in Westminster. The parents of La Quinta's players helped the field's appearance by putting green dye on the infield grass early Tuesday to give it a uniform look.
