The Laguna Beach High softball team moved above .500 in Orange Coast League play Tuesday by taking down Saddleback, 15-0, in five innings at Thurston Middle School. They started the onslaught by getting seven hits in the first inning, including triples by Cory Kent and Kennedi Gherardini and a home run by freshman Jen Sorenson. Gherardini had a strong day at the plate, going four for four with five runs batted in.
The Breakers racked up 23 hits and improved to 3-2 in league and 11-6 overall.
"We got up big in the first inning, and cruised from there," Laguna Coach Alan Ludloff said. "This is the first time every player on our team got a hit in the same game."
Before blanking Saddleback, Laguna had posted another big offensive outing April 20 and defeated Costa Mesa, 13-1. The Breakers totaled 13 hits, led by Gherardini's two-run home run in the first inning and two home runs by sophomore Jordan Hartman, who drove in six runs.
