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.

Saugus High Coach Doug Worley did his homework. Estancia, the Centurions' opponent Friday, had reached the quarterfinals of the Southern Section 3-A Division baseball playoffs by virtue of late-inning rallies. Twice the Eagles had trailed entering the sixth inning and both times they won. So Worley aligned his pitching accordingly. Scott Warr, a left-handed, off-speed pitcher, started and left after four innings with a two-run lead. Then came the heat, Roger Salkeld, whose fastball has been clocked at 90 m. p. h. Salkeld allowed only two singles and struck out seven batters over the final three innings as Saugus advanced to the semifinals with an 8-2 victory at Estancia.

Saugus High School Coach Doug Worley did his homework. Estancia, Saugus' opponent Friday, had reached the quarterfinals of the Southern Section 3-A baseball playoffs by virtue of late-inning rallies. Twice the Eagles trailed entering the sixth inning and both times they came back to win. So Worley aligned his pitching plan accordingly. Scott Warr, a left-handed off-speed pitcher, started and left after four innings with a two-run lead. Then came the heat, Roger Salkeld, whose fastball has been clocked in 90s. Salkeld allowed only two ground-ball singles and struck out seven batters in the final three innings as the Centurions advanced to the semifinals with an 8-2 victory at Estancia.

Canyon High scored three times in the top of the seventh inning Wednesday to post a 6-4 upset of Golden League rival Saugus, which played without scheduled starter Roger Salkeld. The standout right-hander was levied a one-game suspension by school officials for cutting a class earlier in the day. The win lifted the Cowboys (10-9 overall, 7-3 in league play) one game behind first-place Saugus (14-4-2, 8-2) with five games to play. Salkeld, who will be eligible to play Friday against Burroughs-Ridgecrest, was prohibited from athletic participation under school rules for failing to return to class after an earthquake drill, according to Saugus assistant coach Bill Bolde.

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....

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.

Saugus High baserunner Tom Burges scored from second base on an error with two out in the bottom of the seventh inning Tuesday to give the Centurions a 4-3 victory over Hoover in the championship game of the Glendale tournament at Casey Stengel Field. Burges walked to begin the inning and advanced on Darrell Davis' sacrifice bunt down the first-base line. He scored when Hoover shortstop Adam Denne mishandled cleanup hitter J. B. Johnson's ground ball.

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.
