Carpinteria Suffers Second Defeat Against Grace Brethren

Malcolm Gordon had three hits and reached base four times, but Carpinteria fell behind early against Grace Brethren and suffered a 6-1 defeat in a Tri-Valley League rain-makeup baseball game on Monday.

"Guys made some terrific plays and had some very competitive at bats," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "However, there were some times where our competitive focus was lacking and our team did not quite play a clean game.  The good news is that we have two more chances to play well this week."

Grace Brethren is 14-1 and 4-0 in the TVL.

Carpinteria (7-5, 0-2 TVL) scored in the fourth on RBI by Toby Spach, who had two hits in the game.

David Martinez was the Warrior pitcher of record, surrendering 2 runs in 3 innings.  Senior lefty relievers Diego Contreras and Robert Warren limited the Lancer offense over their last two innings of play.

The Warriors play a two-game set with the Nordhoff Rangers beginning Wednesday at Nordhoff and concluding Friday in Carpinteria.

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!
