The Eagles (2-2) trailed, 5-1, before scoring two runs in the top of
the fifth and three in the sixth.
Jordan Hart had a two-RBI single in the sixth and later scored on a
single by Brent Davis.
The game was tied, 6-6, when a costly Estancia dropped fly ball
allowed Garden Grove (3-1) to score two runs in the sixth inning to
regain the lead.
Estancia answered with a run in the seventh inning and had the bases
loaded with only one out, but a strikeout and a picked off runner ended
Deats was pleased with the strong play from senior Andy Romo, who
walked three times, stole two bases and scored a run.
"He's one heck of an athlete and one heck of a kid," Deats said. "I
wish he would have played baseball all four years. He's picking up the
game on the run and he's doing a great job for us."
