Edison starter Noah Kronfly went into the seventh having thrown only 60 pitches, one led to a Sailors hit. Newport Harbor recorded its second and third hits in the seventh, before Kronfly finished things off. He improved to 5-1 and moved the Chargers (15-5, 6-2 in league)

If the program needs additional help this summer, perhaps Ms. McGovern can step in as the cool new teacher. McGovern - Maureen, that is - delivered a wordless tour de force Saturday at the center's Samueli Theater, where she played a three-night engagement with singer-songwriter Jimmy Webb.

Some years ago, my 9-year-old daughter Katie and her soccer team had just lost an elimination game in AYSO soccer. She was crying and looked distraught. I ran out on the field to console her and said "Don't feel bad, you will have many more seasons to win. " She looked at me and said, "I'm not crying because my team lost, Dad. I'm sad because I won't get to see my friends on the team all the time. " In that moment I started to rethink the differential in parental perception and goals from that of their athletic children.

Pop music is full of love-it-or-hate-it milestones, but perhaps no work has inspired more polarized reactions than "MacArthur Park," the seven-minute mini-symphony that Jimmy Webb wrote in the late 1960s about the Los Angeles landmark, a shattered romance and a cake left dissolving in a downpour. Humorist Dave Barry, who took a survey about least favorite tunes, declared that his respondents named Webb's opus "the worst song in modern history.
