Jed Donelan, Dustin Demeter and Colton Nisbet had RBI hits for Dos Pueblos.

Naughton, who was making his second starter after sitting out a couple of weeks with a sore arm, pitched six solid innings, striking out four and giving up an unearned run to earn the win.

Austin Bull pitched a scoreless seventh, striking out one batter, to earn the save.

The win moves Dos Pueblos one victory from clinching a tie for the league title. The Chargers (17-8 overall) are in first place at 7-3, with two remaining games against Ventura (4-6, 7-13) on Tuesday and Thursday.  Santa Barbara is right behind them at 6-4, with two games this week against San Marcos (4-6).

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!
