Derek True belted a two-run homer and had four quality at-bats on Tuesday as Santa Barbara High knocked off Santa Ynez 12-7 in a Channel League baseball game. The Dons were batting with the bases loaded in the top of the 7th when the game was called by darkness.

Santa Barbara had five multi-run innings, led by True, Nick Oakley and Nick Dallow, who drove in a couple of runs. The Dons stole five bases.

"Jordan Harris did not have his best stuff but competed his butt off," said coach Steve Schuck. "Carter Park came on in relief and pitched unreal. He only gave up 1 hit and his curveball had a lot of bite.

"I am happy with the relentlessness that we played with. We just kept coming and they would not stop. We need to have that mindset every game, every inning. I need to state how proud I am of the bench. Those guys were locked in the entire game. They played a huge role in the energy of the team.  The starters really feed off that. What is awesome is every day, we as coaches are so fortunate to see the personality of this team unfolding. It amazing to watch. These guys truly love each other. We still have some work to do but we are on the right path."

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!
