San Marcos Softball Drops 4-1 Decision at Unbeaten Santa Ynez

San Marcos spotted Santa Ynez a 4-0 lead after four innings on Monday and never recovered in a 4-1 loss in a Channel League softball game on the road.

The Pirates scored two unearned runs on two Royal errors in the second inning. Santa Ynez added two more in the fourth on a passed ball and an RBI single.

Santa Ynez is 7-0 overall and 3-0 in league, outscoring its three opponents 30-9. The Royals fell to 2-3 and 2-1.

San Marcos got its run in the sixth when Izabella Velazquez led off with a double and Maddy Leung singled. Velazquez scored on a sacrifice fly by Claire Early. After Leung was thrown out at third,  Megan Cunnison and Allie Fryklund singled to put runners on 2nd and 3rd with two outs. But a deep fly-out to right field ended the threat.

"We still need to clean some things up defensively, but the overall defensive effort was better today," said Royals coach Jeff Swann. "Trailing again in this game, this team showed the same poise and grit to battle back. Unfortunately today it was a little too late." 

San Marcos is scheduled to play at Santa Paula on Thursday.

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!
