Robert Warren Takes a Lump, Throws Complete-Game Win for Carpinteria

Carpinteria's Robert Warren survived being struck in the back of the head by a thrown ball and pitched a complete game as the Warriors defeated Channel Islands, 7-2, at the Santa Paula Cardinal Baseball Classic on Tuesday.

It was Carpinteria's third straight win in the tournament. The Warriors will play their final game at Tom Moore Field at Harding Park in Santa Paula on Wednesday.

Warren scattered 3 hits while striking out 3 and surrendering just a single earned run.  He survived a scary moment in the third as he was hit squarely in the back of the head on a throw from the catcher in attempt to catch a Channel Islands baserunner attempting to steal second.

"The trainer checked him for a concussion and though he had a painful bump, he said he was good to continue," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "Sure enough, he was. Turns out that he pitched really well and contributed to the offense in a big way.  Courageous!"

Malcolm Gordon led the offense, reaching base in all four at bats, while collecting a single, a double, a steal and scoring two runs.  Warren was 2 for 2 and scored two runs. Designated hitter Sal Delgado picked up 2 RBIs and scored a run in the Warrior three-run first inning.

Carpinteria improved to 6-3 on the year.

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!
