Carpinteria Softball Rallies in 7th, Beats La Reina, 2-1

Carpinteria put three hits together to score two runs in the bottom of the seventh inning and beat La Reina, 2-1, in a non-league softball game on Wednesday.

Mikayla Blair doubled down the left-field line and Amanda Blair drove her in with a one-out double to the right-center field gap. With two outs, Samantha Saenz hit a walk-off single to right to score pinch runner Rebecca Bray for the game winner.

Carpinteria pitcher Mackenzie Kephart matched La Reina's highly touted ace for seven innings. She allowed one run in the third inning and scattered five hits. 

"Mackenzie Kephart was outstanding on the mound and I'm very happy with her effort," Carpinteria coach Henry Gonzalez said. "We played excellent defense at every position.  We look forward to using this momentum in next Tuesday's showdown with Grace Brethren."

The Warriors are 13-5 on the season.

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!
