first_img• Photo Gallery: 3/5: Bishop Amat vs. Northview GLENDORA – Chris Eusebio scattered five hits over seven innings to lead the Bishop Amat High School baseball team to a 6-2 victory over Northview in the second round of the Glendora Tournament at Henderson Field on Monday. Eusebio helped his cause with a solo homer in the third inning and finished 2 for 3. Andrew Mistone was the offensive standout for Bishop Amat with a three-run home run in the third inning and an RBI single an inning later. Aaron Elias went the first three innings for Northview and allowed eight hits and four earned runs. Aaron Soto and Martin Valdez went the final four innings and gave up just one run for Northview. “We’re teaching our kids to play the game of baseball, not our opponent, and I felt like we did that better today,” Nieto said. Eusebio gave up a first-inning home run to Ryan Arnold and then settled down. He struck out three and did not allow a walk. “He (Eusebio) was up in the zone early, but he got his slider down and that was the difference,” first-year Lancers coach Andy Nieto said. center_img The Lancers beat Rubidoux 5-1 on Saturday and will face Glendora (2-0) on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Henderson Field.
