The first batter for Laguna Beach on Tuesday, junior Chris Paul, hit a double. Paul then could only watch as the next three Breakers struck out. To Coach Jeff Sears, simple execution is an area in which the Breakers are often lacking. It was made more apparent after they fell, 5-0, to Calvary Chapel in an Orange Coast League game at Skipper Carrillo Field.
