Before the first pitch went out to christen the 2011 prep baseball season, weeks before the Sunset League race was to unfold, Fountain Valley Coach Ron LaRuffa said that Edison "should dominate" the league and that the five other Sunset members would be battling for second- and third-place. LaRuffa was right. Edison repeated as Sunset champion and completed league play May 12 by defeating visiting Marina, 10-4. The Chargers scored the final five runs to pull away from tight game.

The moment has arrived for the Edison and Huntington Beach High baseball teams. Angel Stadium awaits Saturday as CIF champions will be decided. Huntington Beach faces Crespi in the Division II championship game at 4:30 p.m., then Edison will play Capistrano Valley in the Division I title game at 7:30 p.m. The Oilers are making the first CIF title game appearance in the 105-year history of Huntington Beach High baseball, while Edison last won a title in 2001. It has been a magical ride for Huntington Beach, which entered the Division II playoffs as a wildcard team and knocked off three straight league champions – including Yucaipa, the top-ranked team in the state.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Marina High baseball Coach Paul Renfrow said he considered it an honor. But for Henry Owens and Edison, it could be considered more of a big success Wednesday afternoon in the Sunset League game at Marina. Owens, pitching on just four days rest, struck out 11 and held the Vikings to a run and three hits as Edison won, 5-1. The junior lefty shrugged it off after the game. "I usually have five days rest, so this is only four," Owens said.

ANAHEIM — Now that’s how you make a first impression. In the first game for his new team, junior shortstop Christian Lopes could have been nervous Friday night, as the Edison High baseball team opened its season at the Loara Tournament against Aliso Niguel. If he was, it certainly didn’t show. Lopes had a three-run home run and six RBIs as the Chargers won, 10-2, at Glover Stadium. Edison is scheduled to play at Sonora in the second round of the tournament at 2 p.m. today, weather permitting.

PLACENTIA — The Edison High baseball team turned to an unlikely source for a pinch-hit single Thursday afternoon, in the third-place game of the Diamond Sports National Classic. Junior pitcher Henry Owens came in to bat, only after some instructing from senior third baseman Kyle Jones on a proper stance. "Bat like Adam Dunn," Jones told him, and Owens proved up to it in the seventh inning when he slapped a clean single to center. Unfortunately, that was one of the few offensive highlights for the Chargers as Orange Lutheran romped, 12-1, at El Dorado High.

One’s a righty, the other’s a lefty. One’s a senior, the other’s a sophomore. One has short-cut hair that fits neatly under his Edison High baseball cap, and one’s free-flowing long brown hair can hardly be contained. Yet, when it comes to pitching, both Kurt Heyer (the former) and Henry Owens (the latter) have plenty in common. Too much in common, in fact, for Sunset League opponents. Heyer is 6-1 for the Chargers with a minuscule earned-run average of 0.63.

The skinny on the Edison High baseball team all year has been that the Chargers don’t have much pitching depth behind junior lefty Henry Owens. Enter Nic Hanson. Hanson, a senior who didn’t play for Edison a year ago, shut out Los Alamitos, 1-0, last Friday. That helped the Chargers improve to 6-1 in the Sunset League, a game ahead of Esperanza. Hanson is 4-1 this season, but that was his first career shutout. “He did a phenomenal job for us,” Edison Coach Steve Lambright said.

The 2011 prep baseball and softball seasons came to an end last week for the local teams when three teams were eliminated in quarterfinal-round action. In the Division 1 baseball playoffs, top-ranked Edison fell, 3-1, Friday at Moore League champion Lakewood. The Chargers scored their run in the top of the sixth when Jake Lesinski delivered two-out single that scored Jon Torres from second to trim Lakewood's lead to 2-1. The Lancers (29-4-1) scored two runs in the third and once in the bottom of the sixth off senior Henry Owens (12-1)

Timmy Lopes, who graduated from Edison High last week, has signed with the Seattle Mariners. Lopes was taken in the sixth round (No. 191 overall) June 5 by the Mariners in the Major League First-Year Player Draft. Lopes previously had been a UC Irvine baseball signee. He was one of three Anteater signees to sign a professional contract. Pitchers Andrew Potter and Kevin Grendell signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks and Baltimore Orioles, respectively. Earlier this month, Lopes had been named the Most Valuable Player in the Sunset League.

A this point in the prep baseball season, all you need to do is win and move on. That was Edison Coach Steve Lambright's take after his Chargers scored the go-ahead run in the top of the sixth inning Tuesday and made it stand in a 4-3 victory over host Orange Lutheran in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 1 playoffs. The win sends top-seed Edison (25-3) on the road again, this time for a quarterfinal date at Moore League champion Lakewood at 3:15 p.m. Friday.
