Competition is fierce in the Howe family. Mother Lori is a counselor and girls’ golf coach at Reseda Cleveland. Father Chris is an assistant basketball coach at Chatsworth Sierra Canyon. Then there’s son Andrew, a senior starter for the Cleveland baseball team. Everyone seems to be used to pressure.

On Tuesday in a West Valley League baseball opener, Howe delivered a two-run single to break a tie in the sixth inning and was called upon to get the final out on the mound with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh to save Cleveland’s 4-2 victory at El Camino Real.

“OK, I can breathe now,” his mother blurted out after Howe got a groundout on a 3-and-2 count, the third pitcher for Cleveland in the seventh.

Cleveland improved to 5-0 overall and 1-0 in league. Starter Braden Lowe pitched well, striking out six in 6 1/3 innings. But he had thrown 100 pitchers, so he was replaced by Kai Moran with one out in the seventh. After a flyout, El Camino Real loaded the bases with a hit batter, single and walk. After throwing a ball, Cleveland coach Sid Lopez brought in Howe, who’s scheduled to start Thursday.

“He told me to go after him,” Howe said. “I went after him.”

Steven Nelson gave ECR (5-9, 0-1) a 2-0 lead in the first with a two-run single. The Cavaliers fought back, getting an RBI on a ground ball and an RBI on Xavier Acosta’s single.
