Dos Pueblos Little League 10-Year-Old All-Stars Advance to Section 1 Championship Series

The Dos Pueblos Little League 10-year-old all-stars beat Santa Maria Northside LL 2-1 on Monday night to advance to the section 1 championship series.

DPLL must beat Moorpark LL on Tuesday and Wednesday to win the sectional title.

Josh Brennan scored from first on a throwing error in the bottom of the first inning to tie the score at 1-1.

The score remained tied until Joe Talarico of DPLL scored from third in dramatic fashion with two outs on a ball that skipped away from the Santa Maria catcher in the bottom of the sixth for the game winner.

Ryan Speshyock earned the win after an impressive relief effort by DPLL pitcher Jordan Rico.

Great defensive plays by Kellan Montgomery, Josh Brennan and Jack Greaney kept DPLL in the game throughout the latter innings.

DPLL takes on Moorpark Little League at 6 p.m. Tuesday at John Mansville Park in Lompoc.

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!
