But the Vikings jumped out to an early lead Saturday and never looked back.

The big blow was a grand slam in the first by Luke Davis. He finished the contest going 1 for 2 with the home run, two runs scored, two walks and five RBI.

Irvine Valley finished with just three hits in the contest.

Sophomore second baseman Conner Hoskinson drove in the Lasers' run.

For Long Beach City, Dylan Proost earned the win on the mound, going five innings and allowing three hits on three hits and three runs with four strikeouts.

IVC freshman righty Tyler Eastham took the loss. He went 1.2 innings and gave up eight runs (five earned) on seven hits and one walk with one strikeout.
