    No title, but Eagles play a spoiling role

    Laney’s T.J. MolinaA Bay Valley Conference title wasn’t in the cards for the Laney College baseball this season, but the Eagles made a difference in the BVC standings anyway.
    A 9–6 home victory over Solano College on April 14 prevented the Falcons from taking the lead in the BVC by a game over College of Marin. Laney couldn’t do it twice; the Eagles lost to the Mariners 9–2 on April 24. Both Solano and Marin (19–5) qualified for the Northern California Regional.
    The Eagles finished with a 14–22 record overall and were 6–18 in conference play, not bad considering the team weathered a 17-game losing streak (16 in the BVC).
    The team finished the season winning six of their remaining eight games, patching together a modest four-game winning streak in the bargain.
    The Eagles won their final home game against Los Medanos College on April 23, defeating the Mustangs 10–3. 
    Kaleo Johnson and Marcos Valencia each hit solo home runs and Moises Lopez had a two-run singles against LMC. 
    After giving up two runs in the first inning, sophomore pitcher Cody Kellar steadied himself and gave up six hits and one run over the next seven innings.
