High school baseball in Southern California is second to none. You never know when you might be facing a future major league pitcher. Scouts were out en force in West Hills on Friday to watch Chaparral senior pitcher Braylon Doughty take on Chaminade in a Southern Section Division 3 playoff opener. Doughty, an Oklahoma State commit, came in with 77 strikeouts in 44 innings.

“He was good,” Chaparral catcher Caydin Wilson said.

Doughty had eight strikeouts going to the bottom of the seventh inning in a 2-2 tie. That’s when Wilson found himself at the plate with one out, two strikes and the winning run on third. He hit Doughty’s 98th pitch up the middle for a single to drive in the winning run of a 3-2 victory.

“Oh my gosh. I’m ecstatic. That was awesome,” Wilson said.

No hit was more important than the two-run 300-foot single by Matt Churchill in the third that tied the score for Chaminade at 2-2. The ball went off the net in right field.

Chaminade received a terrific relief performance from Adam Batmanian, who threw five hitless and scoreless innings. He walked onto the mound fired up and left in the seventh fired up.

“I pride myself on energy,” he said.

Chaminade moves on to the second round Tuesday against host Mission Viejo, a 3-0 winner over Santa Barbara. Keenan Anzai threw a shutout.
