Seventh-Inning Buena Run Sinks San Marcos Softball

Buena came up with a big defensive play in the bottom of the seventh inning, and the Bulldogs beat San Marcos, 2-1, handing the Royals their first softball loss in Channel League on Thursday.

Down 2-1, Morgan Jensen led off the botttom of the seventh with a single.  Sinai Miranda came in as a courtesy runner. Megan Cunnison laid down a bunt, but Buena was able to nail Miranda at second base.

The Bulldogs got the next two outs to end the game.

The Royals took a 1-0 lead in the first inning on a solo homer by Savannah Tait. They had a scoring opportunity in the fourth, putting runners at second and third base, but they were unable to get another hit. 

Buena tied the score in the fourth on two singles and a double

Buena brought home the game-winning run in the top of the seventh on a walk and two singles.

The Royals (10-3, 4-1) are back in action Friday against Ventura. On Saturday, they host a doubleheader against St. Joseph from Lakewood.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
