EL MONTE — Santa Ynez's softball team defeated Arroyo 10-3 in a CIF Southern Section Division 5 wild card Tuesday.

Armani Garcia drove in three runs and struck out six in a six-hit complete game as the 2017 Division 7 runners-up (12-6-2) won a wild card game in Division 5.

Garcia had two hits. Lauren Swing was 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for the Pirates, and Sabrina Harridge was 2-for-4 with an RBI.

Santa Ynez will play at Simi Valley Grace Brethren at 3:15 p.m. Thursday in the first round. Arroyo finished 10-11.       

The Pirates are without one of their top hitters in Maggie Usher, who will miss the postseason with an injured back.
