Eagles top Spartans in baseball league opener

The Los Altos High baseball team committed four errors in Friday’s game against rival Mountain View, yet that didn’t stop the Eagles and starting pitcher Ryan Baum from beating the rival Spartans.

Behind Baum’s complete-game performance, host Los Altos prevailed 5-1 in the SCVAL De Anza Division opener for both squads. The senior struck out five and didn’t surrender any walks; the one run he allowed in the first inning was unearned.
