Dos Pueblos Bats Erupt in Late Innings for 5-2 CIF Division 1 Playoff Win at Valencia

Dos Pueblos scored two runs in the sixth inning and three in the seventh and beat Valencia, 5-2, in its debut in the CIF-Southern Section Division 1 baseball playoffs on Thursday at Valencia.

After being held to two hits by Valencia ace and UCLA-bound Chase Farrell, the Charger bats came alive in the sixth.

Davey Demeter doubled in Colter Nisbet to tie the score at 1-1 and Isaac Coffey singled in Demeter to make it 2-1, DP.

In the bottom of the sixth, DP’s Dylan Kelley relieved starter Darby Naughton and pitched a 1-2-3 inning. He then led off the seventh with a solo homer for a 3-1 lead.

Demeter hit a RBI double to make it 4-1 and Coffey drove in another run with an infield single for a 5-1 advantage.

Valencia (23-8) hit a one-out double in the bottom of the seventh and another double to make it 5-2. But Kelley induced a pop out to shallow center that was caught by shortstop Coffey and got the final out on another pop out to Coffey.

The Chargers (20-9-1) advanced  to the second round on Tuesday at Mater Dei, a 6-4 winner at Long Beach Millikan.

Mater Dei is ranked No. 16 in the L.A. Times Southland Poll. Valencia was ranked 25th.

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!
