Baseball: Narbonne gets 1-0 win over San Fernando

April 27, 2013 |  5:07 pm

In a game that will likely have a big impact on the City Section playoff seedings, Harbor City Narbonne ended San Fernando's winning streak at 15 games with a 1-0 victory on Saturday.

Sophomore Daniel Rocha threw 6 1/3 innings, and Omar Avila got the save. With the win, Narbonne (16-10) could end up getting a higher seed than the Tigers (25-3) when the playoff seedings are decided on May 11. Narbonne is tied with Banning for first place in the Marine Legue.

Equally important, it probably clears the way for Chatsworth or Cleveland from the West Valley League to take the No. 1 spot. Cleveland owns a win over Narbonne.

Angel Villela drove in the winning run in the bottom of the sixth to inflict a rare defeat on San Fernando ace Alonzo Garcia. Villela also had the go-ahead RBI in a 14-inning win earlier this season against defending champion El Camino Real.

Tyler Flores had three hits in Westlake's 7-1 win over Cleveland.

Cypress defeated Long Beach Millikan, 7-0. David Fletcher had three hits. Agoura defeated Palisades, 12-1. Ryan Fineman, Noah Shearer and Albee Weiss each had doubles.

Jack Poulsen pitched Loyola to its 11th consecutive victory, an 11-1 win over L.A. Cathedral.

Bishop Amat defeated La Mirada, 4-2. Isaac Archer, Ryan Bett and Eric Vega combined on a two-hitter. Evan Claproth had three hits. Bryan Menendez had a home run.

Westchester defeated Long Beach Wilson, 7-4. Andrew Greenfield had two hits and three RBIs.

Buckley defeated Windward, 5-4, in the first game and 1-0 in the second game. Gabriel Esmalian threw a one-hitter.

Chaminade defeated Calabasas, 10-4 and 6-0. Sammy Ross had six hits on the day for Calabasas. Myles Hager hit a home run for Chaminade.
