Malcolm Gordon, Sal Delgado Lift Carpinteria Over Nordhoff

Malcolm Gordon doubled in pinch runner Thomas Hugo with the go-ahead run and then stole home, and Carpinteria escaped with a 3-1 Tri-Valley League victory against Nordhoff and its ace pitcher Luke Boyd.

Boyd was dominating as he struck out 15 Carpinteria batters and surrendered two hits and three runs.

But the Warriors got a strong performance on the mound from Sal Delgado. He pitched a complete game, striking out seven, scattering seven hits and allowing one run.

"This was a good team win," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "Facing a very good pitcher under challenging conditions on the road took a good effort from every single player.  Our battery was good, the defense was good, the bench readiness was there, and our offense was just competitive enough to eek out the win."

Carpinteria scored in the first inning. Gordon singled, moved to second on a Jonah Spach sacrifice bunt, advanced to third and scored on wild pitches. Nordhoff tied the score in the bottom of the first.

The Warriors (8-5, 1-2) and Rangers (5-11, 3-2) face each other again on Friday at John Calderwood Field.

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!
