It’s very hard to beat Etiwanda in a baseball game when Dylan Goff is on the mound and freshman Brady Ebel is batting well.
Birmingham held a 1-0 lead over Etiwanda and Goff, who went to the bottom of fifth on Thursday. The Eagles then hit six runs and won 12-1 to advance to the Division II Regional Finals against Torrey Pines in Etiwanda on Saturday.
Goff improved to 12-0, batting eight in six innings. Ebel hit two doubles and a triple and is likely to start on the mound on Saturday.
