The Herald Baseball team finished their season in a very tough 3-2 loss to Schurr High of Montebello in the first round of the CIF Division 5 playoffs. The Heralds led the game early 1-0 on a triple by junior Chad Green (who scored on an overthrow), but had trouble with the Spartan pitcher the rest of the way. Trailing 3-1 going into the final inning, the Heralds put together a threat with lead off hits by Joe Hernandez and Brian Greene. We managed to score when Brian Greene hustled home from 3rd base and slid under the tag after an error in the Spartan infield. That closed the gap, but the Heralds couldn’t manage to get the tying run to the plate.
The Heralds qualified for the playoffs with their 3rd place finish in the very tough Olympic League.
Congratulations to Coach Munoz and his staff for a fine season!
