Erika Renteria’s four-hitter helped Burroughs High defeat Hart, 4-0, Tuesday in softball and snap the Indians’ Foothill League win streak at 41 games.

Hart (18-4, 8-1) clinched a share of the league title last week, but a loss to Burbank (7-2 in the league) on Thursday could force a three-way tie for the league title. Hart is a four-time defending league champion.

Joanna Carr and Erin Johnson both doubled for Burroughs (11-7, 7-2). Renteria (7-7) shut out a team that came into the game with a batting average of .385.
