    Eagles tied for BVC lead

    Six-game road trip may decide title chances

    Less than a month to go in the season. Tied for the conference lead.
    That is the status of the Laney College baseball team as of Thursday, April 7.
    BaseballThe Eagles, despite a 7–2 home loss to Los Medanos College on April 5, are tied for the lead in the Bay Valley Conference with a 10–3 record. LMC also has a 10–3 record in the BVC.
    Laney plays its last home game in 19 days on April 7 when the Eagles play host to the College of Marin. Game time is 2:30 p.m.
    The Eagles will embark on a six-game “road trip” starting Saturday, April 9, against Marin in Kentfield.
    The reason for the trip is that rainouts in March forced some teams to switch locales to Laney as their home fields were unplayable. Hence the road games (listed below).
    The Eagles don’t have a hom game again until April 26, when they play Folsom Lake College. Two of their last three games of the regular season are at home.
    Laney at the moment has a 17–8 won-loss record. No matter what happens to the Eagles’ season, it’s a lot better than what was happening at this time last season: The Eagles were in the midst of a 17-game losing streak.

    April 9 At College of Marin (Kentfield)
    April 12 At Mendocino (Ukiah)
    April 14 At Napa Valley (Napa)
    April 16 At Contra Costa (San Pablo)
    April 19 At Solano (Fairfield)
    April 21 At Yuba (Marysville)
