Update From Our LMU Lions Baseball Reporter

LMU Lions Pitcher Codie Paiva

LMU just completed its 8th weekend series this season, against conference opponent Santa Clara. The Lions remain unbeaten in series play, putting their record at 7-0-1. The Lions looked to extend their historic win streak to nine games, but came up short with a 10-3 loss in the Friday night opener. However, they recovered, winning the last two games of the series.

Friday starter Blake Redman opened the series on a flat note, allowing 4 runs in the first, 3 unearned. Lions pitching came on strong on both Saturday and Sunday, though. On Saturday, Brenton Arriaga gave up only 2 runs and 4 hits in seven innings of work. He struck out six and issued zero walks. Harrison Simon sealed the win with 1 run, 2 hits, 1 walk and 2 strikeouts. Carrying a shutout into the ninth on Sunday, pitchers Cory Abbott and Codie Paiva allowed only 1 run and 8 hits. Abbott is now 6-1, with over 29 consecutive innings without an earned run. Paiva shut down the Broncos, allowing only 3 hits and one unearned run. Though he did not get the save, Codie Paiva’s record is 5-0. Paiva, a native of Pearl City, Hawaii, gave up one hit to former teammate Tyler Meditz. Both attended Kamehameha HS in Hawaii.

Lions offense impressed, scoring 21 runs over the four day stretch. Shortstop Spencer Erdman returned after breaking his hand during the series against Arizona State. He made his comeback by starting all three games against Santa Clara, and hitting two singles and two RBI doubles throughout the weekend. After taking the series against the Broncos, the Lions returned to action on Monday night to face the #30 ranked University of Washington Huskies. The game could have gone the Lions’ way, but after 10 innings, the Lions fell 8-7. While the game had some dramatic moments, it was also the longest of the season, clocking in at 4 hours and 29 minutes.

On Monday, the Lions got off to a rocky start, allowing 4 total runs in the first, 3 unearned, and committing three errors before even coming up to bat. LMU used six pitchers in the outing. Freshman Giuseppe Benedetti started the night, but was pulled after 4 innings. Harrison Simon threw scoreless eighth and ninth innings on only one day rest, but could not close the door on the Huskies. The loss goes to Niko Decolati, who drops to 1-1.

The lead traded back and forth for much of the game, but the damage was done in the fifth when Huskie batter MJ Hubbs crushed a two-run homer to tie the game at 6. Each team scored one more run, forcing extra innings at 7 runs apiece. In the bottom of the tenth, LMU had two runners on base with one out when a hard hit ball from catcher Cooper Uhl came close to providing the Lions’ 4th walk-off win. The ball dropped just inside the fence, however, for the second out. Billy Wilson grounded out to second base to end the game. Spencer Erdman finished the game 3-for-5 with two runs scored, two doubles, a triple and four RBI’s. Junior Jamey Smart also had three hits, going 3-for-5 with a double.
LMU’s record is now 21-12. They are currently behind the University of San Diego for third place in the WCC.

The Lions will head up to Moraga, CA, for another weekend of WCC play against St. Mary’s, before returning on Tuesday to face non-conference Cal State Northridge. Tuesday’s game had been rescheduled from March 21st because of a rainout. First pitch is at 6:00 PM. See you there?

LMU’s Baseball Team Is Enjoying A Historic Season

Third Baseman Brandon Shearer hits a sacrifice fly on Tuesday night, allowing LMU to score the winning run and record a walk-off win.

This week Living90045 welcomes a guest post from Catherine Galanti. Would you like to write for us? More info here.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on why more people should go to the Loyola Marymount (LMU) baseball games. If anything, that list has only grown since the start of the season.

I know how excited everyone is for the start of the MLB season. I feel the same way. Long, cold months without baseball and actually having to do work instead of watch a game is pretty tortuous. It seems like forever since Major League Baseball was upon us, but now it’s back. If you can’t make it to see your favorite pro team, and even if you can, here are just a few reasons to come out to watch the Lions.

2017 is shaping up to be quite a historic season. At the beginning of the year, LMU beat Arizona State for the first time in 21 years. Pitcher Cory Abbott recorded the first perfect game in LMU school history against BYU. The Lions swept a series for the first time this weekend against West Coast Conference opponent, University of the Pacific. In fact, the Lions have won almost every weekend series they’ve played, going 6-0-1.

They are currently on a hot streak, with a 19-10 record. The Lions won 8 games in a row for the first time since 2009. LMU holds a firm second place in the WCC, with a 6-2 conference record. If they hold on to one of the top four spots in the conference, the Lions will advance to the WCC tournament after the regular season. The tournament in its current form has taken place since 2013, and LMU has gone twice since then.

LMU hitting has really impressed, as well. In the last few games, LMU has dominated with 2 grand slams, back to back home runs, and Billy Wilson’s trio of triples in as many days. Perhaps even more impressive than his hitting is Wilson’s speed around the bases, scoring from first twice this week, and leading the WCC in stolen bases.

On top of all this, LMU has walked-off three times this season, including last weekend against Pacific and Tuesday versus non-conference opponent UC Riverside.

The chemistry on the team is magical. The Lions are having fun and playing their best – and it shows. History is in the making. Don’t you want to be a part of it?

The Lions hope to extend their streak as conference play resumes when the Santa Clara Broncos visit the Lions at home this weekend.

LMU Pitcher Makes School History

photo credit Nina Galanti

This week Team Living90045 welcomes a guest post from Catherine Galanti. Would you like to write for us? More info here.

History was made on Saturday as LMU pitcher Cory Abbott retired 27 consecutive batters to record the first perfect game in school history.

In the final game versus conference rival Brigham Young University (BYU), the Lions looked to top the Cougars in a series for the first time in almost four years. Saturday was the rubber match between the two teams, and LMU certainly delivered.

The game was tied at zero for the first five and a half innings, with Phil Caulfield and Niko Decolati picking up two hits apiece. Though LMU’s hitting was able to score two runs, the focus of the game was on the pitchers.

Junior Cory Abbott threw the first perfect game in the history of LMU’s program, and only the third no-hitter. The last time the Lions no-hit an opponent, it was from current pitching coach Matt Florer in 2013. This was the 26th perfect game in NCAA history.

Abbott shut down BYU’s offense with 13 strikeouts and only 106 pitches. Of those 106 pitches, 79 were strikes. Only four batters drew three balls from Abbott.

This win was especially sweet after seeing the power and capability of BYU’s hitters. The Cougars picked up 10 hits on both the Thursday and Friday outings.

Cory Abbott was named collegiate baseball’s national player of the week. LMU also swept Rawlings’ pitcher and player of the week, with Abbott and Phil Caulfield snagging the honors.

Abbott’s record now improves to 4-1. The Lions now have a 13-10 overall record, and a 4-2 record in conference play.

The Lions take a break from WCC action as they face UC Irvine away this Tuesday. They return home to play conference opponent Pacific this weekend, with games on Friday and Saturday at 6:00 pm, and a game on Sunday with a 1:00 pm start.

An Update From Our Roving LMU Baseball Reporter

LMU Lion Billy Wilson

This week Team Living90045 welcomes a guest post from Catherine Galanti. Would you like to write for us? More info here.

The Lions began conference play last weekend with a three game series against the University of San Francisco Dons. This marked the fifth series of the season, and the fourth the Lions have won.

LMU has taken almost every series so far, the exception being a split four game series against Washington State. Though the Lions have not swept an opponent, they have not yet dropped a weekend series.

The Lions put on a show before heading up to San Francisco, topping USC 4-3 with a walk-off homer from Billy Wilson in the bottom of the 10th. What a way to head into conference play.

LMU continued to impress, as a grand slam from Brandon Shearer on Friday gave the Lions an early lead over USF. However, the Dons retaliated with their own slam on Saturday, breaking up a scoreless game in the bottom of the ninth. The Lions recovered on Sunday afternoon, with a 3-2 victory. The Lions now have a winning record of 11-9 overall, and 2-1 record in West Coast Conference (WCC) play. The Lions currently stand third in the WCC.

Though LMU was slated to face the Cal State Northridge Matadors on Tuesday, the game was canceled due to rain. The two teams will make up that game on April 18th, but first the Lions will take on BYU Thursday-Saturday for three more games of WCC action. The first pitch on Thursday and Friday is at 6:00 pm, with a 1:00 pm start on Saturday.  You can find ticket and schedule information here.

I hope to see you at a game.  Go Lions!

It’s Baseball Season At LMU

This week Team Living90045 welcomes a guest post from Catherine Galanti. Would you like to write for us? More info here.

LMU Baseball 2017 Living90045Major League Baseball is almost here. The teams have reported to spring training, and it’s only a matter of weeks before Opening Day. Here in LA, we’re pretty lucky to have two MLB teams. You can pick who to follow, but it’s often difficult to see a game in person. What if you can’t make it out to Arizona for spring training? Who wants to struggle through traffic to get to Dodger Stadium, or make the trek to Anaheim to catch an Angels game?

Why not take advantage of the baseball program that’s right in our own back yard? Loyola Marymount (LMU) baseball offers a local alternative, with all the fun of a big league game. You get awesome games without the stress of crawling along the 10 or the 5. Don’t miss out on a hidden gem … a diamond, if you will. 😉

LMU games are a great way to experience Division 1 baseball. Not only is the team hardworking and fun to watch, this year they play teams like USC, UC Santa Barbara, Michigan and conference rival, Pepperdine. Seeing a game at LMU is also a great opportunity to watch college players before they get drafted to MLB teams. In the last five years, LMU has had 11 players drafted into major league organizations, with a total of 111 in the program’s history. Among those, 21 players have made it to the majors.

One of the more recent Lions, David Fletcher, was drafted as a sophomore by the Angels in 2015. Fletcher is working his way through the minor leagues, with an invite to Spring Training this year. He is currently listed as the Angel’s no. 8 prospect and is expected to make his major league debut next year.

Two Lions were drafted last season. 2016’s ace pitcher, junior J.D. Busfield, went to the Tampa Bay Rays in the 7th round as the 210th pick overall. Catcher Cassidy Brown was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 12th round as the 348th pick. Pitcher Michael Silva went undrafted, but signed with the Kansas City Royals as a free agent. It will be fun to follow them and future Lion players as they begin their professional careers. Watching LMU baseball is an opportunity to witness and get to know the future of professional baseball.

LMU’s George Page Stadium has a seating capacity of 1,000 and I have to say that there’s not a bad seat in the ballpark. You’ll get a great view of the game, closer than any of what you could get at a Major League park. There are a variety of activities for kids to participate in like the popular Frozen T-Shirt Race and Steal Third Base Contest, along with the Dizzy Bat Challenge. Local businesses like Tony P’s, Tower Pizza and Togo’s are big supporters of the team and frequently give away gift cards as prizes. How awesome is that?

In case all this isn’t enough, adult single game tickets are only about $8, and season tickets cost $40-$80. You certainly don’t find season ticket prices like that in the MLB. For the kids, the Little Lions Club only costs $20, and gives admission to all home baseball games, along with other special events. The Little Lions Club also offers a range of games, summer camp discounts, and more. Get ticket information here.

The Lions’ next home game is this Wednesday, March 1st at 6:00 PM. They play Michigan for one game before an away series at Arizona State University this weekend. Coming back from that series, the Lions will return to Page Stadium Tuesday, March 7th to face UC Irvine. Get the full schedule here.

If you’re a baseball fan and live in Westchester, Playa del Rey, the Marina or surrounding areas, it’s totally worth it to come out with the family. It’s cheap. It’s fun. You’ll get to watch quality collegiate baseball. Come over and watch a game or two. The team will love the support.

Follow the Lions on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @lmulions. I hope to see you at a game. Go, Lions!

Living90045.com - Westchester CA up close & personal

Happy Sunday!

LAUSD voted this week to approve the new Middle School program to co-locate at Westchester High School and our kids are not invited. Boo! Not only did LAUSD refuse to acknowledge requests from our community to increase the size of the program, the school board also made a last minute revision to the Tier 2 enrollment priority (where our local kids are) to add Windsor Hills and View Park students. Sigh. Stay tuned for January, when you’ll start hearing more about a promising candidate to unseat Steve Zimmer as our school board representative.

And on to something decidedly more upbeat, Happy Holidays from me, my family and the crew at Living90045! We wish you all the things you hold dear for the season. We’re taking next weekend off to enjoy some family time and we’ll “see” you in the New Year!
