Arcadia (23-0) has proved it has the pitching depth to be one of the best teams over a 25-game regular season. But do the Apaches have the type of quality pitching to win in playoff-like situations?

That’s going to be the test starting Tuesday night when the Apaches play Crescenta Valley (21-4) in the first game of a two-game series to decide the Pacific League championship.

The game will be played at 7 p.m. at Arcadia, followed by a Friday night game at Stengel Field.

Casey Leebrick of San Luis Obispo shot a 5-under par 67 to win the Northern individual regional at Soule Park Golf Course in Ojai on Monday.

Austin Liu of Oak Park and Owen Arvit of Arroyo Grande tied for second after shooting 68.

The top 20 finishers move on to the Southern Section individual finals on May 17 at Rancho San Marcos.

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.

GREATER LOS ANGELES CHAPTER

Semifinals, Saturday

Mira Costa (26-2) had its final tuneup on Saturday before a season-ending series with Redondo to decide the Bay League title. Three pitchers combined on a no-hitter (watch out Dodgers) in the team’s 2-0 win over Long Beach Wilson.

Jared Karros threw five hitless innings, followed by Alfonso Cano and Joey Acosta at one apiece. Dylan Dennis and Bash Alexiades had RBIs.

Mira Costa faces Redondo at home on Tuesday and on the road on Thursday with a one-game lead.
