Miles Souza, Chase Mayer Are Difference Makers in Carpinteria’s 5-4 Win

Carpinteria defeated Hueneme in dramatic fashion on Friday as Miles Souza ripped a line-drive down the left-field line to score Chase Mayer for a walk-off 5-4 victory in a Citrus Coast League baseball game at John Calderwood Field.

Mayer tripled to open the inning and Souza delivered the game-winning hit to give the Warriors their fifth one-run victory, improving their records to 7-1 overall and 6-1 in league. Hueneme is 0-10, 0-6.

Mayer and Souza were a dynamic duo in this game. Mayer started on the mound and tossed the first nine outs. He struck out two and allowed just one hit. Souza pitched the final four frames and picked up the win. He struck out six, surrendered four hits. 

Just one of the Vikings' four runs was earned as the Warriors committed five errors.

At the plate, Souza had three hits, including a double, drove in two runs and scored a run. Mayer collected two hits and scored the game winner. Jason Warren also had a pair of hits.

"The Vikings played particularly well today and forced our guys to come through in the clutch," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "The third game of the week tested our endurance and focus. Only the players know, but we might have been complacent in our approach."

Cooney singled out the defense of Luke Lounsbury, who made a nice running catch in right field that saves a run in the second inning. He also lauded shortstop Jacob Macias for recovering from a bad hop to nip the Hueneme batter at first base in the seventh.

Diego Hernandez received recognition for catcching "24 solid innings this week," said Cooney.

The Warriors' next twp game CCL series will be with the Santa Paula Cardinals beginning on Wednesday in Carpinteria and concluding on Friday at Santa Paula.

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!
