With just under 3,000 fans watching at Petco Park April 8 in the inaugural game of the Coastal South League season, La Jolla Country Day coach John Edman had a fine line to walk in the bottom of the fifth inning with his Torreys down 2-1 — stay with his lefty ace, Alfonso Rivas, who had given up only one earned run to rival Parker School, or bring in righty freshman Brennan Rubin against the right-handed hitter Nate Glasser, who already had an RBI hit off Rivas.
