Three home runs helps DP come from behind

The Dos Pueblos 9/10-Year-Old All Stars hit three home runs to overcome a shaky first inning, beating Santa Paula 15-5 in five innings at Montalvo.

DP gave up five runs on four hits and two errors in the first inning, but settled down and came back with 15 unanswered runs.

Anthony Gutierrez, Jackson Stetler and Dylan Ledbetter all homered for DP.

DP smacked 16 hits, including four from Evan Steinberger and three from Trevor Craig, who doubled in the winning run in the fourth.

Jacob Koeper, Parker Ledbetter and Conner Gleissner pitched four scoreless innings in relief of Gutierrez. Koeper earned the win, pitching two-and-two-thirds innings, allowing just one hit.

The win sets up a matchup between undefeated, crosstown rivals DP and Goleta Valley South on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Montalvo.
