In other Division II games: Brea Olinda 1, Perris 0--Brea Olinda (17-9) got only two hits, but John Stoddard's two-out home run in the first inning was enough for Aaron Hough, who gave up four hits and struck out three. Magnolia 1, San Gabriel 0--Josh Reding struck out 10, gave up only one hit and also doubled to drive in Ryan Hieman from second for the game's only run. Magnolia is 15-7.
Brea-Olinda pitcher Josh Egan's speedy recovery after undergoing his second arthroscopic knee surgery three weeks ago is just what the Wildcats needed. Egan (3-0) gave up seven hits, retiring the final eight batters as Brea-Olinda defeat Western, 5-4, in an Orange League game Friday at Brookhurst Park. "It's three weeks ago to the day that he had the last surgery on his left knee," Brea-Olinda Coach Steve Hiskey said. "Now that's a competitor."

The Wilshire Grand Hotel and its 17 unionized laundry workers agreed to a contract Friday, ending a three-month lockout that fueled tensions in a larger hotel labor dispute. The six-year contract raises wages by 25%, or $2.55 an hour, and more than doubles the hotel's pension contribution. It prevents the hotel from contracting out work. And there's a bonus for the largely immigrant workforce: a full day's pay for any worker sworn in as a U.S. citizen.

The case of 17 locked-out laundry workers was pressed Friday in a complaint to the National Labor Relations Board and on the steps of their former employer, the Wilshire Grand hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Separately, hotel workers in Washington were to attend picket-captain training sessions today in preparation for a strike. The hotel workers union, Unite Here, is pushing for a new, two-year contract for thousands of hotel employees in Los Angeles, Washington and San Francisco.

Valencia's season has been characterized by peaks and valleys. Thanks to the relief pitching of James Nagel, the Tigers were able to battle back from a seven-run deficit to beat Savanna, 12-7, in an Orange League game Wednesday night at Brookhurst Park. The victory clinched a playoff spot for Valencia. Josiah Hensen's RBI single and Rick Barsh's sacrifice fly gave Savanna an early lead. The Rebels (8-15, 6-8 in league) scored again in the second on Matt Crockwell's two-run triple.

The hotel workers union staged a rowdy all-day protest Thursday outside the Wilshire Grand in downtown Los Angeles, injecting some drama into a long-running dispute with nine luxury hotels and prompting clusters of conference guests to walk out in support. Conner Everts, executive director of the Southern California Watershed Alliance, lost a few panelists and scores of attendees at his long-planned conference on water policies.

One martini was all it took. Slipped into a $300,000 bill from a public relations firm with close ties to Mayor James K. Hahn, the cocktail, imbibed by Hahn deputy Troy Edwards, didn't pass Department of Water and Power employee Randy S. Howard's smell test, he testified Friday. He refused to approve paying for the drink, and was moved out of his job as DWP director of corporate communications.
