McDonald beats Altamirano to reach Claremont final

   In a matchup of unseeded Northern Californians, Mackenzie McDonald beat Collin Altamirano 6-2, 6-2 Saturday in the semifinals of the $10,000 Claremont USTA Pro Classic in Claremont, Calif.
   McDonald, a UCLA junior All-American from Fremont in the San Francisco Bay Area, evened his career record against Altamirano, a sophomore at reigning NCAA champion Virginia from Sacramento, at 1-1. Altamirano defeated McDonald 3-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the boys round of 16 at the 2013 U.S. Open.
   McDonald will play second-seeded Deiton Baughman, 19, of Carson today for the Claremont title. Baughman topped Sebastian Fanselow, a former Pepperdine All-American from Germany, 6-3, 6-3.
   Altamirano knocked off top-seeded Marcos Giron in the first round. Giron turned pro last year after winning the NCAA singles title as a junior at UCLA.
