BURBANK — The Burroughs High baseball team was hoping to come back with some wins after taking part in the Gateway Festival tournament in Arizona. The Indians did get the victories, going 4-0 in the competition outside of Tucson. However, the squad also has something else to show for the tourney — some newfound camaraderie. “We are definitely coming back a much closer team than when we left,” Burroughs Coach Tom Crowther said. “This has been a great bonding experience for us and it has made us closer as a group.

GLENDALE — When the Hoover High baseball team defeated Burroughs back in late March, it marked the beginning of a two-game skid that dropped the Indians under .500 in the Pacific League. With that loss far behind it, Burroughs entered Tuesday’s rematch as the hottest team in the league, having won five straight league games to claw back into a tie for second place. With Juan Aguirre’s bases-loaded walk-off single through a drawn-in infield in the bottom of the seventh, however, the Tornadoes were able to sting the Indians with another big defeat, 10-9, to sweep the season series and pull into a tie for third place with Burroughs.

BURROUGHS HIGH ? There was nothing pretty about Friday afternoon?s Pacific League baseball tilt between Crescenta Valley High and host Burroughs. Whether it was controversial umpiring, bad intentions or the lopsided score, it got a little ugly, as the Falcons stormed past the Indians, 16-3, in a six-inning game ended early due to the mercy rule. Crescenta Valley pounded out 17 hits en route to its fourth straight victory. Indeed, hitting was contagious for the reigning league champs.
