Laguna finished its spring break with Grady Morgan delivering a dramatic “walk-off” home run in the bottom of the eighth inning to lift the Breakers to a 3-2 victory and the series sweep of Calvary Chapel (7-13, 4-5) on Wednesday, April 19, at home.

Blake Burzell started the game, pitching six innings, giving up two earned runs, striking out four. Ashton Goddard pitched the seventh inning facing three batters and Cutter Clawson the eighth inning for the win. The victory was Laguna’s 15th straight over the Eagles and Laguna now leads the series 33-14.
