3.) Corey Seager’s two-out single in the night breaks up Matt Moore’s no-hit bid on Thursday night, but the Giants beat the Dodgers 4-0 to move within two games of the National League West leaders.

In three years as the Wildcats starter Bueno threw 43 touchdown passes, rushed for the 33 touchdowns, passed for 3,843 yards, rushed for 3,195 yards, started three semifinals games, two CIF title games, and led M-Town to its first championship in 2010 after losing all ten of its previous title appearances.

"This book has been such a breath of fresh air. Reminding me why I sit on bleachers and what a community is all about. Most importantly what high school football is all about. I read the book 3 times." "Anyone who has a kid trying out for his High School football team needs to read this book. Torosian has taken his 20 some years of reporting on Prep sports, mixed a healthy dose of San Gabriel Valley insider references and created a very readable first effort." "A page turner...I'm sorry it's over! Is a sequel in the works?" "Torosian does for high school football what Hemingway did for the Spanish Civil War...compelling look beyond the scoreboard and into the lives of players..." "A truly great story unfolds in the pages of Joe Torosian's first novel. With high school football at its core, the story of Dale Andrade shows how a young man grows in all aspects of his life thanks to being a part of a team and a football community." “This is a great read for everyone: from those who love high school football to those who have no idea about the game.” "This book brings you onto the field and into the locker room..."

    @2: I knew we were doing good against Glendora in the Fink years when we saw him playing defense in the 2nd half.

    Someone in the Dodgers’ staff has a thing for the Phillies team that won the WS. I hear rumors they are trying to get the Phillies to waive Ryan Howard for one more late season acquisition.

    Thanks to MVS for covering sports and providing an outlet for opinion. Next year, when the 20th rolls around, President Trump will attend the festivities to congratulate and check for illegals among the staff.

    #6 This one I REALLY don’t understand. What is the upside to this trade? Someone, please, try to explain why you would trade away Kershaw’s catcher right before he comes back? Interesting to note the Phillies already show Ellis on their roster. Ruiz? Not on ours yet.
