Baseball (11-10, 3-3)
Marina’s Gabe Geiger doubled home Joey Murphy to lift the Vikings to a 3-2 tenth inning walk-off victory over Laguna on Tuesday at the Viking diamond. Breaker’s ace Nick Bonn pitch seven innings allowing two runs and striking out 12. The game went two 1/3 extra innings before the hosts scored the game-winning run.
Breakers got on the board early when Tyler Montgomery’s fielder’s choice allowed Bonn to score. Marina went ahead 2-1 in the fourth aided by a Laguna error. Breakers tied the game in the fifth inning when Griffin Naess doubled home Montgomery. The game remained scoreless until the 10th.

Going into last Thursday’s league games, Corona del Mar is 5-1, Laguna 3-3, and both Newport and Marina are 2-4. Breakers closed out with Marina on Thursday at home followed by a series next week with Corona del Mar at home on April 20 and at the Sea King’s field on April 23. Only two league teams are guaranteed a post-season spot.

In the Ryan Lemmon tournament last week, Laguna finished tournament play with a 2-2 record when they defeated Brea-Olinda 5-4 on April 6 in Irvine. Naess scored after Shea Blanchard hit a deep fly to center field to provide what proved to be the winning run. Hayden Farrington was the winning pitcher against the Wildcats who still lead the all-time series with Laguna 35-27-1.
