The South Pasadena High School varsity baseball team suffered a second consecutive Rio Hondo League loss, falling to host La Cañada, 2-1, in eight innings last Friday.
The Tigers (5-5 overall record, 2-3 in league) got on the board in the top of the third inning to take the lead but the Spartans responded with their first run in the bottom half of the frame. Adam Geller of LCHS opened the eighth with a double and later scored the game-winning run on a single from Evan Umland.
SPHS senior Nico Schroeder was stellar on the mound, surrendering one unearned run on two hits and four walks in six innings and recording eight strikeouts. Noah Takeda Teer was dealt the loss by giving up one run on two hits in two innings of work. He also tallied three strikeouts.
DJ Pearson was 1-for-2 and scored the Tigers’ lone run of the game. Landon Ackerman, Schroeder and Teer each singled, and Dillon Hugasian drove in a run.
South Pasadena will travel to San Marino for a league contest this today at 3:30 p.m.
