Esperanza’s Taylor Shumaker continued to challenge the Orange County record for most home runs in a softball season by belting her 17th on Saturday while almost hitting for the cycle.

The senior bound for Florida went 4 for 4 with two doubles, a triple and a home run in a 10-0 victory at Villa Park in the Crestview League.

Shumaker also drove in four runs and walked once in support of Charley Duran, who pitched a three-hitter with 11 strikeouts. Duran also had three of the Aztecs’ 17 hits.

The Orange County record for most home runs in the season is 20 set by Capistrano Valley Christian’s Natalie Gleason in 2022.

Esperanza (12-9, 3-2) is tied for second with El Modena in the Crestview League and has five regular season games remaining.

In a nonleague game:

Rosary 4, Huntington Beach 3: Nevaeh Trejo and Alisa Fair singled in the tying and go-ahead runs, respectively, in the seventh to lead the visiting Royals (16-5). Rosary didn’t face ace Zoe Prystajko but extended its winning streak to four games.
