Carpinteria Romps 19-0 After Dropping Opener of Doubleheader to Nipomo

Carpinteria split games against Nipomo in a Saturday softball doubleheader, coming out with a rousing win in the nightcap after dropping the first.

Nipomo 10, Carpinteria 5

The Warriors committed eight errors that allowed eight Nipomo runs. The Titans were able to jump out to a 10-0 lead in the fifth inning, but Carpinteria answered with five in the fifth off "better focus," coach Henry Gonzalez said. 

Kayana Diaz started the inning with a double, Mikayla Blair walked and Diaz scored on Raquel Cordero's infield hit. Samantha Saenz then doubled to score Blair and Cordero. Isabel Studt then hit a triple to score Saenz.  

Iliana Esquivel's sacrifice fly scored Studt to complete the five-run inning.

On the mound, Amanda Blair gave up just six hits. 

Carpinteria 19, Nipomo 0

Isabel Studt went nearly perfect at bat, going six-for-seven with two RBI and four runs scored. Samantha Saenz hit four-of-seven with 5 RBI and three runs, while Kayana Diaz notched RBIs off three-of-six hitting. 

Amanda Blair gave up only three hits with five strikeouts. 

Carpinteria was able to score eight runs in the second inning. Blair's two-run double and Saenz's two-score single were the big advances.  The team finished with four hits in the inning.

The Warriors scored seven runs in a five-hit fifth inning. Their biggest blows were a Raquel Cordero two-run single, Kayana Diaz two-run double and Isabel Studt RBI single.

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!
