Senior shortstop Drew Bowser, a Stanford signee, is going to make life difficult for pro baseball scouts interested in signing him. His value keeps going up.

Bowser hit his second grand slam in as many games in leading Harvard-Westlake to a 7-4 victory over Damien on Monday. He finished with three hits and five RBIs.

Harvard-Westlake (2-0) entered the bottom of the fourth inning down 2-1. Damien ended up using three pitchers in the inning after two walks and two hit batters tied the score. Then Bowser’s grand slam broke open the game.

“The kid had a 103 fever, too,” Harvard-Westlake coach Jared Halpert said. “Coach Guntz told him Michael Jordan scored 44 points with 103-degree temperature.”
