DOWNEY - The Warren High School boys' baseball team currently has an overall record of 14-8 and a league record of 9-5. Warren currently stands in third place in league and has a chance to finish second if they win their remaining games.Last week the Bears were swept by Paramount 5-0 and 5-2 in tough, defensive games. Most recently, the Bears defeated Gahr 4-2 on Tuesday to bring their league record to the 9-5 mark. Coach Noonan is very pleased with the continued play of Matt Barela. Noonan said that Barela is pitching and hitting very well. Coach Noonan also said that Daniel Roman is playing at a high level also. Roman had a walk-off double against Lynwood that was exciting. Against Gahr, Roman doubled in two runs for a two out RBI that evened the game at 2-2 and energized the crowd and the team. Noonan believes that Roman is the most improved Bear at this point in the season. Coach Noonan closed by stating, "we can defend with anyone, especially our outfield. Solid defense, good pitching and if our bats come around, we will be in great shape."
