The Damien Spartans baseball team defeated Glendora High School this evening with a remarkable comeback on the Tartans home turf.

Damien defeated the No. 3 seed Tartans 8-7 after having trailed 6-1 into the 3rd. Damien began chipping away at Glendora’s comfortable lead in the 4th inning with a 2-run double. A 2-run single brought Damien within 1 run.

An RBI single by the Spartans brought them neck and neck with the Tartans in the 5th.

Glendora walked Damien with the bases loaded to give up the lead 7-6. A wild pitch with the bases juiced added another run to Damien’s lead.

Glendora attempted a rally in the bottom of the 7th inning, but came up a run short, losing to wildcard Damien.
