NEWPORT COAST - The sun began to set in the top of the seventh inning at Sage Hill School on Tuesday. It was getting late, and with no lights, the team needed Max Strohman to finish off Tarbut V'Torah before it got dark. Not everything went as planned in Sage Hill's 4-3 nonleague win. That tends to happen in the first baseball game of the season. With Sage Hill leading by two runs in the seventh, the first batter Strohman faced reached second base after a throwing error on an infield single.

COSTA MESA - A team's first loss in a season can be telling. But even more revealing can be how the squad bounces back. Estancia High's baseball team is forced to find out after falling, 7-0, to La Puente Nogales (4-0) in a Costa Mesa Division semifinal of the Newport Elks Tournament Wednesday. Eagles Coach Nate Goellrich said his team displayed a lack of intensity and came out flat. That didn't help Estancia as it faced the Nobles' No. 1 pitcher Erik Gonzalez. The San Diego State-bound senior and returning Valle Vista League Player of the Year baffled the Eagles with a complete-game three-hit shutout that came with 10 strikeouts.

A week ago, Patrick Murphy posted a photo on Facebook of him standing behind two of his Newport Harbor High standout pitchers, Shaun Vetrovec and Connor Seabold, on national signing day. On Thursday, Murphy found himself out of the picture as their baseball coach. Murphy said he is no longer the Sailors' coach. "I'm not in a position to comment at this time," Murphy said when asked why he isn't coaching at Newport Harbor, where he also teaches. Murphy won't get to coach Vetrovec and Seabold, who signed letters of intent with UC Irvine and Cal State Fullerton, respectively, for their senior years at Newport Harbor.

When Evan Chalmers became aware about the opening for a baseball head coach at Newport Harbor High he said he applied right away. He wanted another chance to lead the Sailors, as he did four years ago before he was abruptly let go without given a reason. A little more than two months ago, Chalmers, who remained a teacher at Harbor and worked as an assistant for rival Corona del Mar's baseball team, was put in charge of the Sailors' baseball team once again. Since then he grew more excited to lead a team that features two Division I-bound pitchers.

CORONA DEL MAR - One signal by the base umpire and Corona del Mar High seemed one out away from escaping a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning. The Sea Kings almost got away with turning a double play without doing so in their season opener against Chino Hills Ayala on Thursday. John Emme, CdM's coach, knew the baserunner, who was tagging up on a deep fly ball to left field, didn't leave early from third. The Sea Kings still checked after the runner reached home to break a tie, throwing the ball to third base.

MONTEBELLO - The bond between baseball brothers on the Estancia High team only became stronger in the third inning at Montebello High. A wild-card playoff game in the CIF Southern Section Division 4 playoffs can bring out the best in players. Yet, a highly questionable call against the Eagles also seemed to trigger some big-time energy from Estancia. The Eagles responded well from a controversial hit-by-pitch judgment call. They scored five runs over the final four innings and pushed past Montebello, 7-1. Estancia will play at South Torrance (17-10)

The Battle for the Bell baseball opener went eight innings, and the usual team won yet again. It wasn't the usual dominating effort turned in by Estancia High. Costa Mesa appears to have closed the gap in the rivalry. Extra innings decided the outcome at Costa Mesa on Tuesday. A two-out error and a two-out single proved to be the difference in the Eagles taking the opener in this week's three-game Orange Coast League series against the Mustangs, 6-5. "It's huge for us," Estancia Coach Nate Goellrich said of opening league with a victory.

NEWPORT BEACH — Weird things happened on a windy Wednesday afternoon at the Newport Harbor High baseball field. A couple of well-hit balls carried all the way out of the park. A couple of balls appeared foul down the left-field line, only to be blown back into play for hits. But the Sailors couldn't really blame their 8-5 loss to first-place Fountain Valley in a Sunset League game on gusts of air. Errors were a bigger issue. Newport Harbor (9-10, 2-7 in league) committed five of them in falling further behind in the league race.

Tyler Rios sat in the visitor's dugout at Estancia High on Thursday and looked back at his time with the Eagles. The senior smiled and shook his head at the same time. "It's gone by real fast, super fast," Rios said of his four seasons with the baseball team. "I could remember my freshman year like it was [yesterday]. " Rios has started at shortstop for Estancia since he showed up at the school. At age 14, he was that talented and ready for varsity. Not much has changed in terms of his height or weight.
