Burzell, Laguna’s Top Pitcher


Baseball (16-8, 11-0)

Blake Burzell became Laguna’s top all-time pitcher as the Breakers continued to cruise through the league race.

The senior, already the all-time scorer in basketball, became the Breakers top pitcher with 207 career innings and a  26-8 career win record. He is just four strikeouts away from a third record, set by Steve Shapard in 1967-69.

Last week Laguna took a pair of five-inning mercy rule contests with Godinez winning 26-1 on April 24 and 12-0 on April 27. Should Laguna lose one or both their two games with Costa Mesa this week they will need to split their series with Estancia (14-9, 8-3) next week to capture their sixth straight conference crown.

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