Sal Delgado Pitches, Hits Carpinteria to 9-1 Win

Sal Delgado fanned 11, allowed two hits and picked up his fifth win, leading Carpinteria to a 9-1 victory over Santa Clara in a Tri-Valley League on Wednesday in windy Oxnard.

Delgado's strong pitching helped the Warriors (12-5, 5-2 TVL) overcome a slow start. The scored was tied 1-1 after two innings.

"Our group started slowly today," Carpinteria coach Pat Cooney said. "Fortunately, as the wind increased, so did the team focus. Though it took some hard work to get going, we were able to execute the all-around plan for the game.  There were key contributions from each player on the lineup card today."

Delgado helped his own cause going 2 for 3 with 2 RBIs, a triple and two stolen bases.  Jonah Spach had two hits, walked twice, scored twice, and stole a base.  Malcolm Gordon reached base three times, doubled and scored three runs.  Eight of nine spots in the line-up collected at least one hit for the Warriors.

Freshman lefty Chase Mayer held the Saints (1-18, 0-9 TVL) scoreless over the last two frames, allowing a walk and a hit while striking out three.

The Warriors will host Santa Clara on Friday at John Calderwood Field 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!
