Pacifica, H. Beach suffer upsetting loses

IT’S THE LAST week of league baseball and softball before the playoffs start.

It was a day for stunning outcomes as the final week of baseball and softball league action got underway on Tuesday.

In Empire League baseball showdown between Cypress and Pacifica, the Centurions tied up at least a tie for the crown with a come-from-behind 5-4 eight inning win in Cypress.

The Mariners held a 4-1 lead with two out in the seventh when Noah Carter’s three-run home run tied the game up and sent it into extra innings. Mike Marsh hit the game-winner, a solo home run in the eighth for the Cents.

Pacifica (8-1 in league) will have a chance on Thursday to knot it all up when it hosts Cypress (9-0) at the Mariner diamond.

Also on Tuesday, the Huntington Beach High baseball team suffered another upset, falling 5-1 to Edison. Another highlight of Tuesday action was Rancho Alamitos’ 3-0 win over Santiago in which the Garden Grove League champs got a no-hitter from Nathan Alarcon.
