Tough St. Bonaventure Batters Stifle Carpinteria Baseball

Lefty ace Chase Mayer navigated the mound for the Warriors

A "re-re-scheduled" Tri-Valley League game saw Carpinteria baseball fall short against St. Bonaventure, 6-2, on Saturday.

Toby Spach led the Warrior charge on offense with two hits and an RBI, but Carpinteria allowed 10 hits to just two of their own.

The Warriors jumped out to a 2-0 first inning lead, but their Irish luck ran out as the Seraphs tallied four runs in the second and extended their lead with runs in the 6th and 7th innings.

Warriors lefty ace Chase Mayer navigated a tough Seraph lineup until he met the pitch count limit with two outs in the sixth inning.

"Tricky to have your third and fourth games of the season come against the league favorite but we made some important steps forward," said Carpinteria coach Patrick Cooney.

He credited his players for making defense a focal point, behind the performances of Spach, Vance Keiser, Jacob Macias, Noah Nuno and Dom Sturdivan.

"The offense will catch up as we get more live at-bats and regular batting practice sessions," Cooney said

The Warriors (2-2, 0-2) face the Sharks of Malibu next week in games scheduled for Wednesday and Friday.

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!
