Grace Brethren Spoils TVL Opener for Carpinteria

Carpinteria held powerful Grace Brethren scoreless for four innings before the CIF Division 4 ninth-rankedLancers erupted for two runs in the fifth and three in the sixth for a 5-0 win, spoiling the Warriors' Tri-Valley League baseball opener at John Calderwood Field on Wednesday.

Carpinteria junior right-hander Sal Delgado and Troy Frazier of Grace Brethren were locked in a scoreless duel. Delgado gave way to freshman lefty Chase Meyer in the sixth and he finished the game.

Frazier pitched a complete-game, three-hit shutout. He allowed two walks had only two Warrior runners advance as far as second base.

Carpinteria is 7-3 overall and 0-1 in the TVL; Grace Brethren is 13-1, 3-0.

"It was really the type of game that we wanted to be in," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "Delgado and catcher Toby Spach kept us in the game and we were just a couple of timely hits away from getting the game to turn our way.  Though a loss isn't good, our players responded well to Tri Valley League intensity and the high level of play will be motivating going forward."

The two teams face each other again at Grace Brethren on Friday at 3:30 p.m.

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!
