• Baseball: Four Home Runs Propels Breakers over Carmel

    Pacific Grove, who have been on a roll of late, tallied their fourth straight win after defeating the rival Padres in ten innings. [05-06-15]

    Maybe it’s something about Carmel, but the Breakers are 2-0 when playing in Carmel this season.

    The Breakers used a five run third, to turn a one run deficit, into a three run lead. After scoring two more runs in fourth, the Breakers looked as though they might run away with it. The Padres wouldn’t quit though, scoring two runs in the bottom of the fourth and then two more in the bottom of the sixth to keep things interesting.

    Going into the bottom of the seventh, Nic Boatman came into relief, but ended up giving up four runs, three of them earned, to allow Carmel to tie the game up and force the second extra innings game between these two teams.

    With both teams scoring one run in the eighth, the game continued on. After a scoreless ninth, Eric Boerner hit his second home run of the game, to give the Breakers a 13-11 lead in the tenth. With Kacee Takasaki on the mound, the score would hold true. Takasaki, the winning pitcher, pitched two hitless innings to finish off the Padres.

    Eric Boerner had two home runs and three RBI’s in the Breakers victory, while Anthony Coppla added a home run and had three RBI’s of his own. Dan Harrington also had a good day at the plate for the Breakers, with four RBI’s and a home run.

    Pacific Grove (17-7, 13-2) will now focus their attention on Soledad (20-4, 13-2). After defeating Carmel, Pacific Grove has the inside edge on the MTAL Championship. With a victory over the Aztecs on Friday, the Breakers would almost guarantee another banner.

    The game will be played at Soledad on Friday, May 8, 2015 at 4:00.
