• Titans Open CIF Title Chase at Home Thursday


    After winning their first Rio Hondo League baseball championship in seventeen years, the San Marino High School varsity baseball team will begin CIF Division IV playoff action on Thursday, May 22 when Mark Keppel visits McNamee Field at 3:15 p.m. for a first-round contest.

    The Titans – who have not hosted a home playoff contest since 2009 – clinched the title last Tuesday with an 8-2 win over South Pasadena before wrapping up the regular season with a 16-7 win at La Cañada to finish 10-2 in league play.

    “We will see what happens,” said head Coach Mack Paciorek. “Keppel is a strong opponent and they have all of our attention right now. We are pleased top be Rio Hondo League champions and thrilled to be hosting a playoff game.”

    The winner of Thursday’s game will advance to meet the winner of a contest pitting Oaks Christian against a wild card team on Tuesday, May 27. Location and time to be determined.

    Paciorek said that Berkeley-bound senior Jeffrey Bain “might be available in the role of a closer,” but was maintaining his “wait-and-see” attitude. Bain, a top college pitching prospect who could also be a high-round MLB draft choice, missed the majority of the season and the entire Rio Hondo League campaign with a strained forearm. “We are also hoping we can get his bat into the lineup,” said Paciorek.

    Junior Miles Glazier is expected to get the start on the friendly home hill Thursday. Glazier is 9-0 on the season, 7-0 in the Rio Hondo League.
