Chaminade High's troubles continued when the Eagles lost, 11-8, to Malibu in a nonleague baseball game Saturday at Malibu.

It was the third consecutive loss for Chaminade (3-4-1).

The Eagles reached the Southern Section Division III semifinals last season.

Chris Martinez hit a three-run home run for Chaminade, which led, 5-0, after the top of the first. The Eagles allowed six runs in the third inning.

Cameron Coughlan and Kyle Phelps hit home runs in the fifth to give the Sharks an 11-7 lead.

Phelps (1-2) relieved in the first inning and went the rest of the way, allowing four runs on six hits.
