HUNTINGTON BEACH — Edison catcher Darren Brink singled to drive in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Chargers an 8-7 second-round victory over Burbank. Darren Weaver opened the Edison ninth with a double. Burbank Coach Dave Johnson elected to intentionally walk Matt Harrell and pitch to Brink, who batted .453 during the season. Brink hit Burbank pitcher Jason Chandler's second pitch into right field, scoring Harrell and advancing the Chargers to the 5-A quarterfinals Friday.
"I was surprised they decided to pitch to me, but I was glad they did. He (Chandler) gave me the fastball I was looking for," Brink said.
