Villa Park, the new No. 1 baseball team in Division 1, loses to Foothill

Villa Park the new No 1 baseball team in Division

A week ago, Villa Park was the toast of high school baseball in Southern California after winning the Boras Classic. But in a clear sign of the challenges facing teams in the Southern Section Division 1 playoffs, anything can happen on a given day, and on Tuesday, Villa Park was beaten by Foothill 4-2 in a return to Crestview League play.

Foothill won the consolation title in the Boras Classic and is now tied for first place with Villa Park at 6-2 with one game to play. Garrett Davidson had three hits and Cameron Kessel threw two innings of shutout relief to get the save. Villa Park moved to No. 1 in this week’s Division 1 coaches rankings, but the loss opens the door for Orange Lutheran to take the No. 1 seed if it can defeat Santa Margarita twice more this week. The Lancers won 13-6 on Tuesday.
