La Mirada~Here we go again.

In what seems like an annual ritual, La Mirada and Mayfair will once again battle for a league championship this season after a miscue went La Mirada’s way in a game they weren’t even playing.

The two teams will square off (both at 9-1), in the final two games of the season Tuesday and Thursday of this week.

This past Friday, a mishandled throw at first base after Frank Armenta of Bellflower laid down a two-strike sacrifice bunt in the eighth inning, allowed the Buccaneers to beat Mayfair 3-2, ending the Monsoons 23-game Suburban League winning streak dating back to 2010.

The Soons last loss was to La Mirada on May 6, 2011 when the Mats beat them 5-3.

Mayfair (19-7, 9-1) is looking for their third straight league championship after sharing the league title with La Mirada in 2011.

Prior to that, the Matadores won the title four of the five previous seasons. Actually, no school has claimed a title in Suburban League baseball the last seven seasons other than Mayfair or La Mirada.

The Mats (18-9-1, 9-1)  are riding a eight-game league winning streak of their own, last losing to Bellflower 1-0 on March 26th.

The home-and-home series begins Tuesday at La Mirada, and shifts to Mayfair on Thursday. Game times are 3:00 p.m.
