LAGUNA BEACH — The Estancia High pitching staff combined to walk eight batters and hit two on Tuesday. Half of those runners found their way home at Laguna Beach.
Six games into Orange Coast League play, the Breakers appear as if they are going to walk away with the league title. They sure walked past the defending league champion Eagles, staying perfect in league with a 9-6 victory.
Laguna Beach was due for a win after losing its first two games of the season last week while in nonleague action. Estancia sure helped the Breakers, who won their 16th game overall, tying them for the single-season school record for wins.
Last season's team set the mark. The current team's goal is to claim the program's first league crown in 48 years.
The Breakers are off to a 6-0 start in league, outscoring the opposition, 73-16, during the stretch. No team in league has challenged Laguna Beach (16-2), ranked fourth in the CIF Southern Section Division IV coaches' poll.
