• Titans Take League Lead With Win Over Wildcats


    The San Marino High School boys’ varsity baseball team took giant leap towards their first Rio Hondo League baseball championship since 1996 with a 5-3 come-from-behind victory over Monrovia on Friday afternoon at McNamee Field. Junior Miles Glazier shook off two unearned Wildcat runs in the first inning and except for a lone enemy tally in the fifth – also unearned – cruised to his fifth league win, seventh overall, against no losses.

    Glazier helped his own cause with a two-out, two-strike, two-run double into the left-centerfield gap in the fifth inning to cap the scoring and raise the Titans’ record to 7-2 in league play with three games remaining on the docket. Monrovia dropped to 6-3 in RHL action.

    Defense eventually saved the day for San Marino. Senior centerfielder J.T. Stirling made a huge defensive play in the sixth inning, running down a fly ball deep in the gap with two out and two runners circling the bases. In the third inning, shortstop Tyler Spitzer went deep into the hole and threw a bullet to first baseman, who’s stretch was the difference in the inning-ending fielding gem.

    Will Derrick and Larsen Cobb scored runs in the second inning to tie the game at two apiece. In the fifth, Cobb hammered an RBI single past a diving third baseman to score Aiden Santino with San Marino’s third run of the game.

    “This was a great team effort,” said head Coach Mack Paciorek. “We made a couple errors, but everyone kept playing ball and we ended up with some big defensive plays. Miles was his typically gritty self on the mound and got a huge win for us.”

    San Marino hosts Valley Torah High School on Tuesday, May 6 and visits Temple City on Thursday, May 8 at 3:30 p.m.
