It’s become clear in Mission League baseball that if you want to win the league, you’ll have to deal with a much-improved Crespi team and pitcher Isaiah Magdaleno.

Nick Grajeda had a two-run single in the top of the seventh to wipe out a 2-1 Crespi deficit. Crespi added another run for a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the seventh. Harvard-Westlake closed to 4-3 when Jack Truszkowski-Young came in to get the save with the final two outs.
