Carpinteria Outscored 8-2 Across Final Two Innings in Loss to Santa Clara

Warriors get 10 hits and five runs, despite the loss

Carpinteria hung tough with CIF-SS Division 7 top-ranked Santa Clara until the fifth inning, but the Warriors were outscored 8-2 over the final two innings and dropped a 13-6 non-league softball decision on Tuesday. 

The Warriors got 10 hits and five runs in the loss, which coach Henry Gonzales attributed to the team's defensive efforts.

Isabel Studt sent a two-run triple to the right field and came home on a Samantha Saenz single to put the Warriors up 3-2 after three innings

The Saints tied it in the top half of the fourth on two hits and three errors.

A single by Raquel Cordero scored Mikayla Blair and Studt, who had walked. That put the Warriors back up 5-4. But the lead was a short lived.  

"I believe we are a very good team but have to improve on being consistently good in all phases of the game." Gonzales said.  

Carpinteria (5-2) plays a home doubleheader Saturday against Morro Bay.

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!
