BURBANK- The Burroughs High baseball team hosted Malibu, ranked No. 5 in CIF-Southern Section's Division VI, for a day-night doubleheader at Tomahawk Field on Saturday. By the end of the day, the Indians had used a combination of timely hitting, savvy play and poor Malibu defense to sweep both ends of the twin bill from the Sharks to embark on their first win streak of the young season. Game one ended in a bizarre sequence that gifted Burroughs a 5-4 win and dealt Malibu its first loss of the season before a 9-3 win in the second game.
