Pacific Grove baseball

 It was suppose to be a trial by fire period for the Breakers this spring with just one senior on a roster littered with youth.
 And outside of league play, it has been just that for Pacific Grove, who is 0-8.
 Yet, a non-league mark isn't always a reflection of what can occur in league play. Ten games into the Mission Trail Athletic League season and the Breakers are 10-0.
 Granted six of their final eight games are against two teams that are currently a combined 18-4 in the MTAL, not to mention two games this week with reigning league champion Carmel.
 So yes, you can make the argument that Pacific Grove hasn't been tested in league play, based on the 13-41 combined record of the teams it has beaten in the MTAL.
 Still, two of those wins came against King City, who is 6-1 since absorbing those two losses.
 Pitching has been the key for Pacific Grove in league play as it has allowed just nine runs, having posted four shutouts.
 Sophomores Hunter Hanes, Dylan Graham and Kevahn Ebron have been solid on the hill in MTAL play, as Hanes is 4-0 and Graham 3-0, while Ebron has a win and a save in his last three outings.
 Two more sophomores have carried big bats at the plate in Trevor Hein and Jack Sendell. In fact, the top four leaders in hits for Pacific Grove are all sophomores.
 And while Pacific Grove dropped three more non-league games during the Easter Break, what it has going back into league play is confidence.
