UCSB Softball Closes Out Bulldog Classic With Two Losses

Playing in its final two games at the Fresno State Bulldog Classic on Sunday, the UC Santa Barbara softball team fell to California Baptist, 5-1 and Fresno State, 3-1.

Opening up the day against the Lancers (8-12), who they beat 7-5 on Friday, the Gauchos (5-16) would rack up 10 hits but weren't able to turn them into runs in the 5-1 defeat.

Junior Genesis Ramirez provided some fireworks in the top of the sixth, leading off with a solo home run to left center. It was her first of the season and the second one for the Gauchos against CBU this weekend.

As she has been all year, sophomore Sammy Fabian remained consistent at the plate, as she posted a pair of singles on four at bats. Freshmen Ally Nodohara, Teah Thies and Tyler Goldstein all finished with two hits as well.

Playing the host Bulldogs (14-6) late Sunday in a game that was originally scheduled for Saturday before being postponed due to rain, the Gauchos fell, 3-1.

Once again, UCSB would score its only run in the top of the sixth courtesy of a swing from Ramirez. This time though, her RBI would come in the form of a sacrifice fly to right field, bringing home Nodohara who had made her way to third after leading off with a walk.

The Gauchos finished with three hits.

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!
