Combining for 46 runs on the day, the University of La Verne took both games of a doubleheader over Caltech by scores of 23-1 and 23-5 to complete a three-game sweep over the Beavers in SCIAC baseball action Saturday in Pasadena.

All told, the Leopards produced 24 hits which included 12 extra-base hits with a homer, six triples and five doubles.
La Verne matched its run total in the second game, plating 14 runs on nine hits in the first inning. Cody Hazel drove in four runs in the top of the first, collecting a two-run single while later belting a two-run triple in the frame. Hanna and Ross Hebert also hit two-run singles.
In the third, Moralez smacked a two-run single to highlight a five-run uprising to give La Verne a 20-0 lead. Bryce Roenicke, who finished with three runs and three RBI, hit a two-run homer in the seventh for his only hit in three at-bats.
The Leopards will next head to Anthem, Arizona, to take part in the Arizona Desert Classic beginning with a doubleheader with George Fox on February 16.
