Spring Sports Update

Baseball’s Streak Now at 10

After tagging the runner at the bag, Austin Paxson tries for a double play at first.

Laguna continued to look unstoppable in Orange Coast League play as the squad’s quest for their first pennant in 48 years appears bright. On Monday, Laguna (10-0, 3-0) pounded Godinez (4-6, 0-3) 18-7.

Laguna scored eight runs in the first inning followed by seven in the second with Chris Paul’s grand slam home-run the big blast of the day. Overall, Laguna pounded out 17 hits including eight doubles. Jackson Rees pitched four innings for the win (4-0) while some relief pitching experimentation resulted in five earned runs that has ballooned the teams earn-run average to 1.50, still an excellent number.

The squad faced Costa Mesa (5-3) and Saddleback (2-5) to complete the first of three rounds of league play this past week. Tomorrow, the Breakers compete in the 37th annual Anaheim Lions Tournament featuring 58 teams, the toughest in-season competition until the playoffs.
