Baseball

Jose Aguilar (San Jacinto): Had three hits including a home run and triple and knocked in six runs as the Tigers clawed Beaumont 18-6.

Casey Angel (Mountain Empire): Angel was hellish with the bat in his team's 28-0 romp (six innings) vs. Calvary Christian. He finished with three doubles and a triple.

Eric Berger (Woodcreek, Roseville): Pitched the last nine innings of a 14-inning game against Placer of Auburn, striking out 18 while giving up three hits and a run, but the run was in the 14th inning as Placer edged Woodcreek 6-5. Berger is one of the most watched junior pitchers in the nation. He should be quite hyped next spring.

Taylor Cameron (Valley Christian, Cerritos): Hit for the cycle and had three RBI in leading his team over Village Christian of Sun Valley 5-3.

Cody Cipriano (Westlake, Westlake Village): Hoisted three home runs, including two for three runs each, and had seven RBI overall in a 4x4 batting performance that led to a 9-6 victory over Calabasas, a team that started out strong but is now struggling.

Blake Crosby (La Quinta, Westminster): Was a perfect 4x4 at the plate and doubled his pleasure with eight RBI in a 13-0 blanking of Bolsa Grande of Garden Grove.

Tim Dickins (Rolling Hills Prep, Palos Verdes Estates): Drove in six runs while batting 3x4 in leading his team to a 12-11 edging of Ribet Academy of Los Angeles.

Chris Errecart (Lincoln, Stockton): Hammered a two-run homer in the first inning of a showdown game against rival St. Mary's, which was his second round-tripper of the week. The all-state candidate outfielder will begin the playoffs with 11 season home runs and a batting average well above .500.

Matt Felkins (Rio Linda): Had two hits including a homer, drove in six runs and scored twice as Rio Linda downed Highland of North Highlands 18-2.

Alex Figueroa (Narbonne, Harbor City): Went 3x3 at the plate with a home run, seven RBI and two runs scored in a 15-0 whitewashing of Los Angeles Washington.

Ryan Fleckenstein (East Union, Manteca): Retired the last 15 batters in a row and finished with a no-hitter as the Lancers blanked Buhach Colony of Atwater, 3-0, in a Valley Oak League game.

Andy Flores (Roosevelt, Los Angeles): Fired a two-hit shutout and struck out 10 in gainnig his 12th season win in a 7-0 ringing of Bell.

Kris Haycock (Tehachapi): Had a week to remember with 10 RBI in one game and a 4x4 outing in another. Haycock hit three home runs, including a grand slam, to account for most of the 10 RBI he had in a 15-4 win over Shafter. He also homered as part of his 4x4 game that keyed a 13-8 victory vs. Wasco.

Andrew Horton (Pacific Christian, Los Angeles): Whacked three triples and a double in a 15-5 win over Calvary Baptist of La Verne. How close did he come to a fourth triple that would have tied the state and national record?

Alden Klemm (Central, Fresno): In a 5-4 victory over Clovis, Alden came up big with five hits and five at-bats and had four RBI.

Jordan Lee (Clovis): Drove in all seven runs he had in the Cougars' 17-0 romp over Clovis East in the first two innings. That's what a grand slam in the first and a three-run shot in the second will do for you.

Chris Margaronis (St. Vincent, Petaluma): Pitched a complete game five-hitter and struck out 13 in a 12-3 win over Tomales. The senior also had a week in which was 6x8 offensively with eight RBI and raised his season batting average to .556.

Patrick Mason (Paloma Valley, Menifee): Fired a five-inning two-hitter with 11 Ks and blasted a grand slam in a 14-1 win over Perris. Patrick should be All-Riverside County once again.

Trevor Plouffe (Crespi, Encino): Orbited three home runs while batting 4x4 but even that wasn't enough as Alemany of Mission Hills prevailed 10-4. Trevor's just a junior and should have a busy summer ahead with showcases, camps and U.S. junior baseball commitments.

Omari Sealey (Skyline, Oakland): Omari had one of those "oh, my" kind of games with two doubles, a grand slam homer and six RBI as the Titans whipped Oakland, 15-3, and clinched first-place in the Oakland Athletic League.

Joe Spiers (Arrowhead Christian, Redlands): Smacked a home run for the third consecutive game and extended his hitting streak to 26 games as the Eagles edged Vasquez of Acton 4-3. Joe was regarded as one of the top sophomores in Southern California last year when he played at Temecula Valley.

John Sullivan (Marian Catholic, San Diego): This 6-2, 235-pound three-year starter ripped a walk-off homer -- also his second homer of the game -- in Marian's 4-3 victory over Hilltop of Chula Vista. Sullivan also is big in the classroom with a 4.0 GPA.

Henry Utumapu (Seaside): After hitting a homer in his last at-bat in the previous game, Utumapu went deep in his first two times up in a 7-6 win in eight innings over Alvarez of Salinas.

Townsend moved past the 11 home run total by Emily Ogata of San Dieguito Academy (1999) that was the San Diego Section record when the season began.

Kat Walsh (Granada Hills): A no-hitter with 14 Ks was her considerable contribution in a 4-0 victory over Cleveland of Reseda.
