SFT: Ventura stuns Dos Pueblos

Alison Milam belted two home runs, but Dos Pueblos suffered a rare home loss on Tuesday, falling to Ventura, 8-6, in a Channel League softball game.

The result means the Chargers need to win at Ventura on Thursday to claim the league title outright. They have a 9-2 record while Ventura is 8-3.

Milam belted a three-run homer and Kai Uyesaka and Monica Salas had RBI hits, staking the Chargers to a 5-0 lead in the first inning. Milam hit a solo homer in the sixth.

Ventura chipped away at the lead. The Cougars scored three unearned runs in the sixth and two in the seventh to spoil DP’s Senior Day.

Charger seniors Monica Salas, Bailey King and Sara Fernandez were honored before the game.
