Dos Pueblos took a 6-0 lead after two innings and went on to defeat Pacifica, 9-2, in a Channel League softball game in Oxnard.

Bella Nuño and Mia Reveles continued their hot hitting, both going 3 for 5. Nuño had a two-run triple and a double. Georgia Miller went 2-3.

Kaitlyn Ashby went the distance for DP, scattering six hits and a walk. The two runs she allowed came on a homer in the third.

“I’m really proud of Kaitlyn Ashby today,” said coach Mike Gerken. “After the home run in the third, I asked her to pitch like she had a chip on her shoulder and she responded by retiring the next 12 out of 14 batters, including nine in a row. That’s a lot of resilience for a first-year varsity pitcher.”

Dos Pueblos, ranked seventh in CIF-SS Division 4, improved to 8-2 in league and 16-8 overall.

The Chargers host Oxnard (6-2 in league) on Wednesday in a battle for second place.
