Dos Pueblos sophomore standout Ryan Speshyock held Santa Barbara scoreless in his six innings on the mound, striking out 13, before the Dons sent the game into extra innings with three runs in the seventh, ultimately prevailing 4-3 on Vince Gamberdella’s walk-off hit on Friday

Santa Barbara’s Erik Elizalde hit a two-run single in the seventh to tie the game. Elizalde also pitched a scoreless sixth inning, before giving way to sophomore Zane Lee-Paulick, who finished with three scoreless innings on one hit to pick up his first varsity win for the Dons.

“It was so fun to watch Zane throw today,” Dons coach Steve Schuck said. “He is fearless and nothing gets too big for him.”

Josh Brennan and Jackson Greaney had multiple-hit games for the Chargers.
