It looked like another one of those Pitch Slap games: off to a strong start, then fade to another notch in the lost column.
This time Pitch was matched up with Reds, who might not have a great win/loss record, but come with a dugout full of strong athletes and power hitters. Pitch took the early advantage, then the Reds powered back to a 5-14 lead going into the open sixth inning. Pitch had one last shot at pulling off a come-from-behind; all they needed was 10 runs and theyâ€™d go 5-5 in league action. Yeah, like all anybody needs is one winning lottery ticket.

Inyo residents have another opportunity to weigh in on the discussion about the mountain yellow-legged frogs and Yosemite toad and how critical habitat endangered/threatened species designations may impact life in the Eastern Sierra.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced Thursday that it is reopening the public comment period for its proposal to list the Sierra Nevada yellow-legged frog and the northern population segment of the mountain yellow-legged frog as endangered and the Yosemite toad as threatened under the Endangered Species Act.
With Inyo County Consolidated Waste facing a deficit for the coming fiscal year, local leaders are looking at ways to boost revenue and reduce expenses.
One option for maintaining state compliance while getting a clearer picture of the amount of waste going into local dumps, Senior Deputy County Administrator Pam Hennarty said, would be including scales at the Bishop-Sunland Landfill.
