Carpinteria blanked by St. Bonaventure

Carpinteria missed a chance to score early and St. Bonaventure responded with two runs in the bottom of the first and went to blank the Warriors 5-0 in a Tri-Valley League baseball game in Ventura on Friday.

The Warriors beat the Seraphs earlier in the week.

Friday's loss knocked Carpinteria out of a first-place tie. The Warriors are 7-3 in the TVL (14-6 overall). St. Bonaventure is 8-2 in league (16-7 overall).

After their missed opportunity in the first, the Warriors had runners in scoring position in the fifth, sixth and seventh innings but failed to push a run across. They had seven hits in the game.

Malcolm Gordon and Chase Mayer each had two hits, while senior lefty Diego Contreras pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen.

"Though the result is disappointing, it was a good baseball game," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said.  "It was clear that any luck that we got in our previous game had evaporated.  Our at bats were competitive, we limited the damage inflicted by a really good offense, and the energy was positive throughout.  We'll need to carry the same intensity toward practice and play into an important series with Malibu next week."

Carpinteria, which has already secured a CIF playoff spot, plays Malibu twice next week (away on Tuesday, home on Thursday) and needs one win to secure third place. St. Bonaventure needs to win both games in their series against Nordhoff to share the TVL championship with Grace Brethren.

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!
