Even Roger Salkeld, the architect of a no-hitter Thursday, needs a little help. Saugus High's celebrated right-handed pitcher defeated rival Canyon, 4-2, with the first no-hitter of his high school career in a Golden League game at Canyon. Salkeld managed the feat despite running a slight temperature--the effects of the flu--at game time. It wasn't, however, a typical no-hitter. Saugus rallied to score three runs in the top of the seventh and then held off the Cowboys in the bottom of the inning for the victory.

Hart High's Eric Spindt is accustomed to pressure. He thrives on it as the starting point guard for the Indians' basketball team. Saugus learned firsthand Tuesday afternoon that the same applies to baseball. Spindt, a junior left-handed reliever, struck out both batters he faced with the bases loaded in the seventh inning to earn his first save and secure Hart's 7-5 Foothill League victory over the Centurions in Newhall. "Yeah, I'm used to that stuff," Spindt said.

Talk about your high-powered batteries. The pitcher-catcher combination of Gerardo Sanchez and Javier Rojas was more than enough to energize visiting Central Union High of El Centro, which whipped Saugus, 5-1, Friday afternoon in a Southern Section 3-A Division quarterfinal. Offensively, Saugus (15-10) failed to turn its engine over, managing just three hits against Sanchez (10-0).

The Saugus High baseball team had better hurry up and win the Southern Section 3-A Division championship. Looks like Roger Salkeld is running out of gas. Salkeld, Saugus' ace right-hander, went the distance for the 12th time Tuesday--and for the second time in four playoff games--as Saugus defeated Ontario, 10-3, in a semifinal game at College of the Canyons. The Centurions (23-4-2) will play Kennedy of La Palma, a 7-2 winner over Tustin, for the championship Saturday at 1 p.m. at Dodger Stadium.

For the second time in as many Southern Section 3-A Division baseball playoff games, seniors Scott Warr and Roger Salkeld teamed to lead Saugus High to a shutout victory. Salkeld (11-0), a 6-foot-5 right-hander, fired a two-hitter and struck out 13 Tuesday and Warr delivered his second consecutive game-winning hit as the Centurions defeated Glenn, 3-0 in a second-round game at Glenn. Saugus (21-4-2), winner of seven in a row, will play Estancia in a quarterfinal game Friday at a site to be determined.

Introducing Roger Salkeld, the man with the golden arm--soon to be pitching in a major league ballpark near you. The memories are waiting--or so it assuredly seems. For Salkeld, Saugus High's 18-year-old, 6-foot-5 senior right-hander, deciding whether to attend college before signing a professional baseball contract, seemingly, is his only pressing concern. Who wouldn't give their right arm to have Salkeld's right arm? Life must be tough, eh, Rog? "What more can you ask for?

Seems like the game at Saugus High is never over until the last man has been struck out by Roger Salkeld. At least that was the case Friday. Salkeld, Saugus' ace right-hander-turned-ace-reliever, recorded a very special K with two out and the bases loaded in the seventh inning, hurling three comets past Hesperia's Sean Sers to preserve the Centurions' 2-0 victory in the opening round of the Southern Section 3-A Division baseball playoffs....

Saugus High didn't have any words to offer Golden League rival Canyon on Friday before the teams met for the third time this season. "We don't want to talk to them," Saugus assistant coach Bill Bolde said. "We just want to come in here and play like we own the place." The Centurions did, clobbering host Canyon, 9-1, to clinch at least a tie for first place and the league's top playoff spot with two games remaining.

'Twas the night before the baseball amateur draft and all through the house, everyone was stirring--except Roger Salkeld. "He was the first one to go to bed last night and the last one to get up this morning," Elaine Salkeld said of her son Monday morning. This was the day for which the Salkeld family had waited. Bill Salkeld, whose father, William, played eight years in the big leagues with the Pirates, White Sox and Boston Braves, admittedly had longed to see the family name back in pro baseball.

The Southern Section 3-A division championship game Saturday at Dodger Stadium was advertised as a "King of the Hill" duel between pitchers Greg Hansell of Kennedy High School and Roger Salkeld of Saugus. Salkeld, ranked as the sixth-best prep pitching prospect in the nation by the publication Baseball America, had struck out 162 batters with a 90-mile-an-hour fastball and had allowed only nine earned runs in chalking up 12 victories without a loss. Hansell had struck out 113 batters and completed 10 games en route to a 12-1 record.

He lived by the strikeout--404 of them in his magnificent three-year high school career--but he died by the wild pitch. After pitching a shutout into the ninth inning, Roger Salkeld suffered the only loss of his senior year Saturday when his 1-1 offering to Don Cochran of La Palma Kennedy High skidded to the right of catcher J. B. Johnson and rolled 90 feet to the backstop at Dodger Stadium. With it rolled Saugus' chance to win its first baseball title in the school's 14-year history as Greg Hansell raced home from third base to give Kennedy a 1-0 victory and the Southern Section 3-A Division championship.
