Carpinteria Regroups, Rallies Past Thacher

Carpinteria recovered from a lackluster start with a big third inning and defeated Thacher, 8-2, in a non-league baseball game in Ojai on Saturday.

Coming off a pair of losses against St. Bonaventure, the Warriors (6-4) fell behind 2-0 after two innings. They turned things around in the third inning as Jose Carrillo had an inspirational 11-pitch at bat that resulted in a walk and Tony Vega hit a two-run double to start a four-run rally.

"It turned out to be a game that required our best energy and attention," coach Pat Cooney said. "It was a really important game for the team. The Toads challenged us with all sorts energy. All 14 Warriors became emotionally invested and each player played in the game."

The Warriors hit five doubles in the game. Chase Mayer and Toby Spach each doubled, had two hits and figured prominently in the Carpinteria scoring.

Mayer earned the win on the mound. He scattered six hits, gave up two unearned runs, walked two and struck out five. Vega threw the final two innings and struck out three.

The Warriors play next Saturday at Santa Clara.

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!
