Sage Hill’s pitcher lived up to his name.
Brett Super threw a two-hitter Tuesday in Sage Hill’s 2-0 win over Crean Lutheran in an Academy League baseball game at Sage Hill.
Super has been superior before. A junior right-hander, Super is 9-0 with a 0.72 ERA. He has 93 strikeouts with only 15 walks in 68 innings.
Capistrano Valley’s Bob Zamora became the third coach in Orange County baseball history to reach 700 wins Monday with the Cougars’ 10-inning, 3-2 victory over Trabuco Hills.
Zamora was more excited about the game itself than its significance to his career.
“It’s good to win a big league game, and to
ORANGE – Experience in the Trinity League has taught JSerra baseball coach Brett Kay that he can never get too comfortable.
So even after the Lions collected a pair of victories over No. 2 Orange Lutheran earlier this week, Kay felt the pressure to secure the sweep.
Cole Samuels continued the Lions’ tren
ANAHEIM - The pitching of Jake Mahood and Kyle Luckham, along with some timely 10th-inning hitting, was enough for the El Dorado baseball team to catch Esperanza in the league standings.
The Golden Hawks began the week in second place, behind Esperanza, in the Crestview League.
They climbed closer with a victory Wed
CYPRESS – Cypress beat Pacifica, 6-3, Friday in an Empire League baseball game that had a little bit of everything.
For Cypress coach John Weber, much of it was bad.
“A lot of errors,” Weber said. “Some good swings and some good pitching. Some bad pitching, too.”
One of those good Cent
MISSION VIEJO – This has been a remarkable three-week stretch for Jake Spillane and his fellow pitchers on the Mission Viejo roster.
Spillane tossed the team’s third consecutive shutout, and the visiting Diablos defeated first-place Trabuco Hills, 5-0, on Friday in a Sea View League game at Trabuco Hills High.
Just beyond the left-center field fence at Trabuco Hills’ on-campus baseball field stands a goal post on what is a practice field for the Mustangs football team.
Chad Crosbie can be seen hitting home runs in that direction during batting practice most days.
“I guess that’s my lucky spot,” he said after Tue
IRVINE - Beckman senior Jack Wiese threw the first no-hitter of his career Friday as the Patriots defeated University, 3-0, at Beckman to remain atop the Pacific Coast League.

IRVINE - Woodbridge pitcher Zak Baayoun wasn’t about to come out of Friday’s Pacific Coast League baseball game with Corona del Mar, even after taking a line drive off his hand in the seventh inning.
CdM’s Evan Larsen ripped a shot up the middle leading off the seventh. Baayoun tried to field the ball, but
In 2006, JSerra hired Brett Kay, then 26, away from Capistrano Valley Christian to coach its baseball team.
That worked out well for JSerra. Kay has coached the Lions to three Trinity League championships, recently earned his 200th career coaching victory and has the team in first place in the league and at No. 1 in the
Kennedy remained undefeated in the Empire League with an 8-1 home win over Valencia on Wednesday.
The Fighting Irish are 5-0 in league and are 15-6 overall. They play league-favorite Cypress in two weeks.

FULLERTON – As the stakes get bigger late in the baseball season, it is not uncommon to see hitters grip their bats a little tighter.
The pitchers certainly had the edge in a game between the top two teams in the Freeway League on Wednesday.
Jake Eisner and Vince Stachelski combined on a four-hit shutout as ho
JSerra beat Orange Lutheran, 5-2, Tuesday at Hart Park in Orange in the first of three Trinity League games they will play against each other this week.
