Baseball: Cleveland takes over first place in West Valley League

April 30, 2013 |  5:41 pm

With a little help from Granada Hills, Reseda Cleveland has taken over first place in the West Valley League with three games to go.

Jack Hartman had a no-hitter for 6 2/3 innings and settled for a one-hitter in Cleveland's 4-0 victory over El Camino Real on Tuesday. He struck out nine. Matt del Mundo went two for two. 

Granada Hills defeated Chatsworth, 2-1, in eight innings on a walk-off hit by Chad Richman. Ryan McBride went the distance for the Highlanders, who haven't beaten Chatsworth in years.

Cleveland (19-9, 6-1) has a one-game lead over Chatsworth (5-2).

Hartman improved to 10-1 overall and lowered his ERA to 0.43.

Birmingham defeated Taft, 4-3. Steven Rothhammer had an RBI double.
