Channel Islands High pinch-runner Kenny Long scored the winning run from second base in the seventh inning Wednesday to lift the host Raiders to a 4-3 Marmonte League victory over Camarillo. Long scored when Erik Jue misplayed Nacho Godinez's two-strike bunt.

The Raiders (15-8, 7-4 in league play) remain tied for second place with Simi Valley with three league games left.

Godinez (3-1) earned the victory in relief of starter Rene Sanchez, who had a no-hitter through 6 1/3 innings before giving up three runs on an error, a single and two doubles.
