SoCal HS BSB Schedule & Notes

With the pre-league tournament schedule finally complete most teams are into their second week of league play as they march up to the spring break tournaments in a couple of weeks.

Mater Dei used an 11th inning walk-off walk to beat Servite then held on as Santa Margarita threatened late to improve to 2-0 in Trinity League play. The Monarchs offense is being led by seniors Austin Grebeck, Ryan McMahon, and Tyler Adkison.  Servite may be a surprise team in league play this season as this is a savvy team that does a lot of things well. With a good mix of seniors and underclassmen, coach Jeff Sears hopes the 2nd year is a memorable one for the Friars. Santa Margarita is the only team without a league win.

El Toro swept the week as they took a double header from Edison before defeating Capo Valley to open South Coast League play. In Ryan Kayoda and Chasen Ford, coach Mike Gonzales has arguably the best 1-2 combination of starters in the county. After winning the Newport Elks Tournament, Capo Valley ran into a hot El Toro team before splitting a double header with Marina this weekend. Mission Viejo is quietly putting together a good start to their season as the Diablos sit 8-3 heading into the week and are getting big-time contributions from underclassmen.

After winning the Chatsworth Tournament, Harvard Westlake split a pair with Loyola to open Mission League play. The nationally ranked Wolverines have been doing it with pitching, defense, and timely hitting. Loyola, led by two D1 pitchers, is off to a indifferent start at 4-4 having lost a couple games they should have probably won. Alemany is leading the league with a 2-0 record and is 7-2 overall.

The ever competitive Moore League gets started this week with a great game right out of the gate.  Long Beach Poly will send Chris Castellanos to the mound against Wilson in a game being played at Blair Field. Castellanos has not lost a game he has started in his high school career. Wilson is starting to show some consistency in winning four straight after starting 2-4; seniors Mike Semonson and Tim Richards are leading the way on offense for the Bruins. Lakewood, winners of four of their last five, appears to be hitting their stride in time for league play. They open with Long Beach Jordan while still playing in the Redondo Tournament.

The Century League begins in earnest this week after a two teams having already played one league game.  Canyon is coming off an impressive win in the Loara Tournament over a streaking Fountain Valley team that had beaten three county Top 10 teams. At 6-0, the Comanches certainly are ahead of where most predicted they'd be at this stage. El Dorado may have found their next ace in sophomore Nick Sprengel who dominated Vista Murrieta in the Loara Tournament consolation game. Esperanza will need to get big-time contributions from younger players if they're going to have success this season.
