Jeff Tully With a 10-run lead late in their Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Minor Softball championship game Wednesday, Rowdie Girlz's Coach Tom Guttry decided to share the joy. "We let some of our other pitchers throw the last few innings and we got some players into the game to let them experience the fun," Guttry said. The Burbank-based team of 9-, 10- and 11-years-olds had little to worry about, because even with its reserves, it was able to notch an 11-7 victory against the Glendale Elketts at Montrose Park.

MONTROSE - Burbank had the game well in hand Friday when the 11-12-year-old Major baseball team took on Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans in a District 16 All-Star Tournament second-round contest. However, despite enjoying a five-run lead heading into the final inning at Montrose Park, Jewel City staged an impressive comeback to tie the score. Burbank was able to obtain a measure of redemption, though, when Anton Prather delivered a walk-off home run to open the bottom of the sixth inning that propelled his team to an 8-7 victory.

MONTROSE — While every other District 16 softball and baseball champion has been crowned, the Junior Softball tournament hadn't gotten underway until Friday evening. On Thursday, the Burbank All-Stars thought the opening game was a 7:30 p.m. start, when it was actually at 5 p.m. On Friday, it was the Crescenta Valley All-Stars who showed up a bit late, according to them. "In the beginning, we weren't ready to play," said Crescenta Valley leadoff batter Cece Martinez.

GLENDALE - Burbank's second win in the Major Baseball Section 2 Tournament has left it one of two teams still fighting for the championship. The victory also enables the locals to go against a team that defeated them just two days prior - Sherman Oaks. In Monday's elimination game with Quartz Hill, Burbank looked to an offense that has been the team's strength throughout, and did not disappoint yet again, as two home runs and 12 total hits lifted the District 16 Major Baseball champions to a 14-6 victory at Montrose Park that eliminated Quartz Hill from the tournament.

Peter Fuertes MONTROSE -- Malia Sullivan's pitching kept the Burroughs High softball team competitive in its nonleague contest against Crescenta Valley High. Unfortunately, the Indian offense could not figure out Falcon pitching ace Meredith Cervenka. The Indians were limited to one hit -- an infield single by Sara Larquier in the second inning -- and gave up two runs in the bottom of the fifth inning, en route to a 3-0 loss Thursday at Montrose Park.

Erik Boal For the first three innings of their Little League District 16 Minor Baseball Tournament semifinal against Andy's Transfer and Storage, the Burbank Dodgers relied on the strong left arm of pitcher Ryan Piper to repeatedly escape trouble. The Dodgers cut down two runners at the plate in the first, held a runner at third in the second and forced their opponent to strand the bases loaded in the third, which kept the game tied Saturday at Montrose Park.

Erik Boal It was an outcome Ron Gobble could have never predicted. And unfortunately for the Burbank Bulldogs Major Baseball coach, it happened at the worst possible time. After yielding a little more than three runs per game in their first 25 contests, the Bulldogs were tagged for 10 runs in the first two innings of Monday's second-chance bracket quarterfinal in the Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament. Even though Burbank rallied for two runs in the top of the fourth inning, its momentum proved to be short-lived, as the Home Sales by Lynnell Red Sox -- representing Tujunga -- scored twice in the bottom of the inning to put the 10-run mercy rule into effect with a 12-2 win at Montrose Park.

Erik Boal Frank Cuccinello said he would rather have faced a representative from Crescenta Valley or Tujunga Little League instead of the Burbank Bulldogs in his District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament opener. That's because the Dyrness Automotive Major Baseball coach had squared off with Coach Ron Gobble's squad seven times during the past two seasons, winning every time. But even with his past success, Cuccinello was visibly nervous before the contest Tuesday at Tujunga Little League Field.

GLENDALE ? Facing the Burbank Major All-Star softball team meant that Cece Martinez needed to be disciplined. Listening to one of her teammates helped Martinez, a center fielder on Crescenta Valley, succeed in one of the biggest games in her career. Martinez finished with three hits ? including a solo home run ? and teammates Maddalena Polizzotto and Delaney Gay contributed three hits, as well, on Wednesday night to power Crescenta Valley to an 8-6 victory against Burbank in the Little League District 16 if-necessary championship game at Scholl Canyon Park.
