In Mission Valley Athletic League (MVAL) baseball on May 1, John F. Kennedy's Titans again beat the James Logan Colts to put the league in a tight contest for the championship. With the Titan triumph 3-0, Colt aspirations were muted; a second upset as the American Eagles defeated the Washington Huskies 6-3, tightened the league even more.
With only five games left in the season, MVAL is no longer dominated by any single team. The Titans put on an impressive performance as the shut down the Logan offense and played great defense throughout the game. In the top of the second inning, Titans catcher made the defensive play of game as he tagged Logan's Isaiah Bond at home plate to stall Colt momentum. Titan Darren Williams had a good day on the mound, holding the Colts to three hits.
Titan hitting stars of the day were Raiden Dancil, Ronnie Lozano and Pablo Artero with big hits at critical times. Pablo Artero relieved Williams at the mound and closed the game for the Titans.
