Carpinteria’s Sal Delgado Shuts Down Bishop Diego

Carpinteria's Sal Delgado was stellar in the rivalry game against Bishop Diego, striking out 10 and allowing just three hits in a 3-1 baseball victory on Wednesday at John Calderwood Field.

The win raises Carpinteria's records to 10-5 overall and 3-2 in the Tri-Valley League. Bishop falls to 4-10, 1-4.

Delgado threw 103 pitches in a complete-game performance. He had good control, walking only two batters.

"Delgado and catcher Toby Spach have been a reliable battery and really seem to be working well together," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "The team gleans confidence from them and looks for opportunities to support them with good defense."

Carpinteria broke a scoreless game in the third inning with two runs. Robert Warren led off the inning with an infield single, Malcolm Gordon followed with a single to left, advancing Warren to third. Gordon stole second ahead of David Martinez' sacrifice fly that scored Warren and advanced Gordon to third.  Delgado walked and Gordon scored the eventual winning run on a double steal play.

The Warriors added a run in the fifth. Warren led off with a double and later scored on the "contact play" as Sal Delgado grounded him in, said Cooney.

Warren had two hits for the Warriors.

Bishop threatened in the sixth as Will Goodwin doubled and Matt Selman drove him in with another double. Selman, however, was cut down trying to stretch his double into a triple. Delgado retired the next two Cardinal hitters.

Goodwin pitched well for Bishop. He struck out four in six innings and gave up seven hits.

"It was a good high school game that changed on just a few key plays," Cooney said. "Will Goodwin is very competitive and we knew that the Bishop offense would apply different forms of pressure.  We expect Friday's game to be a grind.  Coach Molina's Cardinals will be at home and eager to get into a battle."

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!
