Foresters Advance to Friday’s World Series Finals

Santa Barbara posts a 5-3 win over Lake Havasu, which eliminated the Foresters from last year's tournament.

The Santa Barbara Foresters defeated the Lake Havasu Heat 5-3 Wednesday night to advance to Friday’s finals of the NBC World Series in Wichita, Kan.

For the first time in the last three games, the Foresters did not come from behind after the first inning.

Austin Fleet started the game for the Foresters and pitched six and two-thirds innings of two-run ball. Matt Evers relieved Fleet and pitched the eighth, and Joey Cutler came in to shut down the ninth.

Havasu eliminated the Foresters in last year’s tournament.

Eddie Siegel is the Santa Barbara Foresters‘ communications director.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
