Freshman Alex Martinez strikes out 10 in Sylmar’s win over Kennedy

Sylmar High is emerging as the favorite in Valley Mission League baseball behind Newman pitcher Alex Martinez, who scored 10 points in a 3-2 eight-inning win over rival Granada Hills Kennedy on Monday.

Sylmar (7-3, 2-0) conceded an important jump catch from outfielder Alonso Pedron in the round of 16 that led to a double.

Victor Carrera had the game-winning RBI in eighth place. Sophomore Mike Andrade went three for three.

As soon as Martinez arrived in the summer, coach Ray Rivera said he knew he was making a difference. He throws strikes and stays calm under pressure.

It could be the last game for both teams for a while as rain and a three-day strike begin in the Los Angeles Unified School District Tuesday.
