Valencia scored when Josh Wheeler's grounder to shortstop was thrown into right field. The Parrots scored four runs in the inning on three Lancer errors.
``We just didn't pick it today,'' said Grant coach Jeremy Lawrence, whose team tied a season high for errors in a game. ``We didn't play the defense we are capable of playing.
``If I had the answer, I'd be a genius.''
Carrera, Valencia and Zack Jones-Sims each had two hits.
