For much of Tuesday's key Orange Coast League baseball game against Estancia, it appeared that Laguna Beach would even things up with Eagles.
The Breakers were on the verge of putting their season series with Estancia at 1-1, but the Eagles rallied late to score single runs in both the bottom of the sixth and seventh innings to pull out a 2-1 victory. The setback cost the defending-champion Breakers a shot at moving into a tie for second place in the league standings and closer to league-leading Calvary Chapel.
Laguna scored their only run in the top of fifth and had runners in scoring position in the sixth and seventh innings, yet couldn't punch in another run.
"We had great at-bats today, pitched very well, (but) a couple errors in the field made the difference," Laguna Coach Mike Bair said. "We were prepared to play today, even with the layoff, but just couldn't get the clutch RBI hit."
