Breakers Easily Defeat Saddleback


Baseball (12-8, 7-0)

Breakers had it easy last week in league as they defeated Saddleback 27-0 in a five-inning contest on Tuesday, April 17, and then the Roadrunners (2-16, 0-19) took a forfeit in a rematch that was slated for Friday, April 20.

Breakers set a team single-game record in the Saddleback contest as eight different batters were hit by the erratic Roadrunner pitchers (ouch). Even with the five-inning mercy rule, the 27 runs scored were the third highest by a Laguna team in 80 seasons of play.

Remaining league series: this past week was Godinez (5-15, 1-8); next week is Costa Mesa (10-12, 6-3), and following that is the final week of play closing out with Estancia (12-9, 6-3) on May 8 and 9.

Southern Section CIF playoffs will be announced on Monday, May 14. Breakers opening game should be Thursday, May 17, at Laguna.
