James Kaprielian was stumped.
Asked what seemed like a fairly innocuous question, the Beckman High pitcher could only muster an "Uhhhh …"
Finally, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound junior with an 89-mph fastball answered, "Travel ball, I think."
The question? When was the last time Kaprielian was tagged with a loss while pitching a baseball game. He went 10-0 last year as a sophomore for the Pacific Coast League champion Patriots, and is 3-0 this season, following last week's win over Woodbridge in the league opener.
What about two years ago on the freshman team?
"I don't know, we didn't lose too many games," he said. "I pitched in relief then. It might have been travel ball."
Kaprielian certainly is on the fast track. He was the Pacific Coast League pitcher of the year last year as a sophomore and is only getting better. In the league opener against Woodbridge last week, he took a perfect game into the seventh inning.
