SANTA PAULA 5, CARPINTERIA 0
Miles Souza registered 12 strikeouts on the mound, but the Warriors were held to just two hits on the afternoon in their loss to Santa Paula.
Souza and Hunter Garcia were the only Warriors who reached base via hits on Tuesday.
“Today’s game was even closer than the score as it hinged on just a few plays. Santa Paula applied continuous pressure and really limited the attack. Without run support, the pitcher has to be nearly perfect,” coach Pat Cooney said. “The bright spots today were that we pitched well, played good defense and were mentally alert through 7 innings.”
Carpinteria (7-4, 6-3 in Central Coast League) is tied for second in the loss column with Santa Paula. The two teams will meet again at Santa Paula Thursday.
