Dos Pueblos Can’t Make up 3-0 Deficit, Falls to Buena

Dos Pueblos gave up three runs in the first inning and couldn't catch up, leaving the CIF-SS Division 4 second-ranked Chargers a 3-2 loser at No. 4 Buena in a Channel League softball game on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs scored their runs with two outs, putting together two hits and a home run.

DP battled back in the third with five consecutive hits to score two runs. But the Chargers left the bases loaded.

In the sixth a great defensive play from Janet Salas to Anya Schmitz to catcher Jade Sinskul got a Buena runner at home to keep DP within one run.

Ariana Cruz hit safely in the seventh and Nova Sinskul bunted her to second. She was called over to third but the Buena catcher was able to throw her out.

The result leaves both teams at 3-1 in league. They meet for the final time on Thursday at DP.

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!
