Sierra Canyon poised to make playoffs after sweeping Crespi

By Jacob H. Pollon


The Sierra Canyon baseball team took care of business this week with a sweep of Crespi.

The Trailblazers are in prime position to make the playoffs.

Sierra Canyon won 3-2 on Tuesday at home and then escaped with a 1-0 victory on Wednesday in Encino.

Tuesday’s win came in the bottom of the ninth when the Crespi pitcher couldn’t handle a comebacker to the mound cleanly. After regrouping, he threw wild to home trying for a force out.

Freshman Sean Parrow went 4 2 /3 innings, giving up one run on four walks with two strikeouts.

Armando Solorio threw three innings of 1-hit ball with a walk and three strikeouts.

Andrew Nelson, Julian Areliz, Ethan Montes and Austin Jahng each had a hit for the Trailblazers.

Mikhal Johnsoin walked three times.

In the 1-0 win, Nelson drew a bases loaded walk in the seventh for the game’s only run.

Montes and Hagopian combined on the 2-hit shutout. Montes walked two and struck out four. Hagopian walked one and struck out two.

Crespi left runners on third base in the fifth and seventh innings.

Sierra Canyon has five games left, including a pivotal 3-game series with Notre Dame next week followed by two games with Loyola to end the regular season.

Sierra Canyon is 6-4-2 in league play, Notre Dame has five losses and St. Francis six losses.
