Etiwanda is the defending Southern Section Division 2 champion in prep baseball, so the Eagles know how to play in pressure games. They came out on Monday in the first game of a critical three-game series against Damien and performed brilliantly.

Marcus Johnson threw a five-hitter and Cody Freeman contributed four hits from the leadoff position to lead Eitwanda past Damien 13-1 and pull the Eagles into a first-place tie in the Baseline League. Gio Del Negro had three hits and Tyler Bardowell and Austyn Coleman hit home runs.

Rancho Cucamonga defeated Chino Hills 2-1 in 10 innings. Omar De La Herran broke the tie with a home run. That means Damien and Etiwanda are two games ahead of third-place Chino Hills with two to play.

The comeback of the year award goes to Sean Miller and Arizona.

Encino Crespi guard Brandon Williams announced on Saturday that he will attend Arizona.

Williams was a former Arizona commit who signed a non-binding scholarship agreement last November with the Wildcats, only to open up his recruitment following continuing issues with the FBI’s ongoing probe involving alleged corruption, fraud and bribery in college basketball.
