Santa Ynez 6, San Marcos 5

The Pirates (5-3-1, 2-2) beat the Royals with a five-run seventh inning in a Channel League game at San Marcos.

"It was quite the rally," said Santa Ynez coach Warren Dickey. "A season-saver type of thing.

"We came from dead in the water to winning a league game on the road."

Tyler Rasmussen got the comeback going with a two-run single. Brock Dix put the Pirates ahead with another single, and Logan Ast singled in the eventual winning run.

San Marcos reliever Isaac Villareal, the eventual losing pitcher, hit a solo homer off Santa Ynez closer Merek Mercado in the bottom of the inning, but Mercado eventually got the last out to earn the win.
