Down by two going to the bottom of the eighth inning, Los Gatos scored three runs on five hits to record an 8-7 DeAnza League win over Santa Clara.

Alaana Panu started the inning with a sharp single to left and scored on a double by Sara Chiala. Chiala moved to third on a ground out by Sara Sharma and scored on a single by Mira Sharma. Alexa Wong followed with another single, and Rosie Gomez ended the game with yet another base hit.

Starting pitcher Mira Sharma had to leave the game with a stiff back in the third inning, and freshman Lynsey Chiala took over and tossed six innings to pick up the win.

Los Gatos pounded out 16 hits, including three each by Panu, Mira Sharma and Sara Chiala, and two hits each by Rachel Ice-Crespo and Wong.

Los Gatos improved its record to 15-5 overall on the season, 6-2 in league play.
