Foresters Clinch California Collegiate League Baseball Title

Santa Barbara wins the second game of a doubleheader to secure its 15th championship.

After dropping the first game of the doubleheader 4-7, the Santa Barbara Foresters (32-16,18-11) clinched the California Collegiate League championship with a 4-2 win over the MLB Urban Youth Academy Barons on Sunday.

The Barons were led by Nick Akins’ two home runs in the first game. Third baseman Daniel Nelson also added a solo home run. The team was led by a seven-inning complete game by Darrell Hudson, who allowed nine hits and struck out seven while walking six.

The Foresters loaded the bases in the bottom of the seventh, but Ryan Goetz who went 3-5 with two RBIs, popped up to center to strand the runners and end the first game.

In game two, the Barons started off strong again with Ryan Thorton hitting a lead-off home run and Jarred Frierson scoring on a ground ball to jump out to a 2-0 lead.

The Foresters answered with three runs in the fourth inning lead by Kevin Keyes’ RBI double. Austin Fleet (3-0) settled down after the first inning, retiring 15 Barons in a row. He pitched six solid innings, with five strikeouts and one walk.

Bryan Suarez pitched two innings in relief, and Joey Cutler pitched the last frame for his ninth save.

The Forester bats were led by two Texas Longhorns, catcher Cameron Rupp, who went 1-3 with two RBIs, and centerfielder Kevin Keyes, who went 2-3 with an RBI and two runs.

The Foresters already have clinched a trip to the NBC World Series with their Rawlings California Cup Tournament earlier this month, but now have clinched their 15th California Collegiate League championship.

The Foresters will wrap up their season against the SLO Rattlers at 5 p.m. Tuesday at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium before heading to Wichita, Kan. The Foresters have a 20-4 record in July.

Eddie Fabello represents the Santa Barbara Foresters.
