Carpinteria Rally Falls Short Against Dunn

Dunn scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning to break a 2-2 tie and held off Carpinteria for a 6-4 non-league baseball win, spoiling the Warriors' home opener.

David Martinez started for Carpinteria and surrendered two earned runs over four innings. 

The Warriors scored first as Malcolm Gordon led off the game with a single, stole second and scored an RBI groundout by Sal Delgado.

The Earwigs struck back with two in the third as Gavin Haimovitz drove a 3-1 pitch over the fence in right.

The Warriors got even in the fifth on an RBI single by Jonah Spach that drove in Jacob Garside, but they stranded three baserunners in the frame.

Warrior reliever Robert Warren (0-1) held the Earwigs at bay until the 7th when Dunn erupted for four runs.

Carpinteria scored two in the bottom of the 7th and brought the tying run to the plate. But Dunn reliever Brandon Lawrence notched the save and secured the win for starter Trace Evans.
Spach collected two singles, a RBI, and a run scored and Sal Delgado had three RBIs.

"Collectively, we began to reach the game speed and intensity that we will need to have in the long run," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "We are really looking forward to more game action as we play every other day for nine days."
These two teams resume their non-league series on Thursday at The Dunn School in Los Olivos.

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!
