The Angels sent ailing pitcher Ramon Ortiz to Los Angeles to be examined by their team physician Tuesday but issued no medical report, no update Tuesday night. No news was definitely not good news. The team revealed Wednesday that a slight tear had been discovered in Ortiz's right labrum, the thick, fibrous tissue found in the shoulder joint. The Angels are optimistic that through rest and rehabilitation, Ortiz will return in a week to 10 days and be sound enough to open the season.

The Montclair Prep baseball team sent an early message to Village Christian High, its Alpha League rival and the team that was supposed to replace the Mounties at the top of the league heap. Mounties' shortstop Keyaan Cook barreled into Village Christian catcher Greg Lloyd to end the top of the first inning Friday night, leaving Lloyd obviously shaken and causing Cook to be ejected from the game. But Cook's hit--combined with 10 of the more traditional kind, a pair of five-run innings and a 13-3 victory at Bluebird Field in Sun Valley--definitely served notice that Montclair Prep was not about to step aside quietly.

Walks, errors, hit batsmen--you name it, you had it in Tuesday's Alpha League baseball showdown between Village Christian and Montclair Prep. Emerging from the pileup relatively unscathed was Montclair Prep with a 16-11 victory that raised its league record to 4-0 and its overall mark to 16-2. For the record, host Village Christian (12-2, 3-1) committed six errors, walked 14 Mounties and hit two batters. Montclair Prep pitchers walked nine and the team committed one error.

Kevin Grant struck out a career-high 19 batters and surrendered just one hit--an infield single--as Montclair Prep routed L. A. Baptist, 16-1, Friday in an Alpha League game at L. A. Baptist. Grant (5-1), a senior right-hander, frustrated the Knights by mixing his fastball and knuckle curve. Twice, he struck out the side in order. Brad Imbler spoiled Grant's bid for a no-hitter with none out in the fifth when he beat out a grounder to shortstop Keyaan Cook.

Russell Ortiz is, apparently, a quick study. Hit hard Wednesday in his first American Legion game, he bounced back to throw a no-hitter and lead Panorama City to a 6-1 victory over visiting Las Virgenes in a District 20 game Saturday afternoon. Ortiz struck out 10, walked four and allowed an unearned run. Josh Smith had two triples for Panorama City (4-2).

A trio of area high school athletes will continue their baseball careers at NCAA Division I schools next season. Two are pitchers--Westlake's John Snyder and Montclair Prep's Russell Ortiz--and the other is a catcher--Sam Voita of Granada Hills. Snyder (6-foot-2, 170 pounds), a right-hander whose fastball has been clocked at 87 m.p.h., has signed a letter of intent to play at Cal State Long Beach, Westlake Coach Rich Herrera said Thursday.

Steve Cain isn't the best pitcher on the Sepulveda American Legion baseball team. And he wasn't the top gun at Montclair Prep High last spring, either. Yet the left-hander once again proved that he is as stubborn as they come when it counts, allowing one earned run over six innings to lead Sepulveda to a 12-3 victory over Woodland Hills West in the District 20 championship game Sunday at Birmingham High. Especially the big ones.
