Led by the arm of sophomore Alex Martinez who threw a complete game shut out, the James Logan Baseball team won their first NCS title in 10 years on Monday night by a score of 1-0 against the De La Salle Spartans.
The game began as a pitcher’s’ duel and remained that way for the rest of the game as neither team scored an earned run. The two pitchers dominated the first five-and-a-half innings of the game as the score remained at 0-0.
Logan scored their only run of the game when, with two outs, senior Pasqual Flores skied a ball into shallow left field where the De La Salle defense misplayed and allowed the ball to drop, permitting Flores to advance to second base.

Giants general manager Brian Sabean veered out of the proverbial basepath when he went off on Florida Marlins outfielder Scott Cousins during a KNBR radio interview earlier this week.
He belittled an opposing player beyond what even an overprotective Little League parent might yell, much less a Major League Baseball executive. There was no excuse for him to say "we'll all be happy" if baseball never again sees Cousins, who thrashed catcher Buster Posey's left ankle in a collision at home plate May 25 at AT&T Park.
National outrage ensued over Sabean's remarks during his radio show. On Friday, Sabean was phoning the Marlins and Cousins to make amends, and embarrassed members of the Giants' brass found themselves defending Sabean's emotional nature.
There is no doubt that emotions were a factor in Sabean's outburst. So is a loyalty to Posey. The star catcher's inability to return for the Giants' title defense has broken the hearts of many inside and outside of AT&T Park's brick walls.
