Foresters Belt Three Homers in 11-5 Win Over SLO Blues

Blake Brewster, Hank LoForte and Chandler Bengtson homered and combined for seven RBI, powering the Santa Barbara Foresters to an 11-5 victory over the San Luis Obispo Blues in a California Collegiate League baseball game on Saturday at Pershing Park.

Brewster capped a six-run first inning with a three-run blast. LoForte hit a two-run bomb in the second for an 8-2 lead and Bengtson belted a two-run homer in the fifth for an 11-4 advantage.

Joshua Jung had a run-scoring single, Zach Humphreys drove in a run on a fielder’s choice and Walker Grisanti singled home a run in the first inning. Jung also hit a RBI single in the fourth.

Evan Lee pitcher six innings and picked up the win. He struck out eight, allowed four runs on six hits and two walks, and hit a batter. Braden Pearson and John McMillon finished the game. McMillon gave up a single and walk to start the ninth and then got the next three batters to look at strike three.

The Foresters play the Blues in their final home game on Sunday at 2 p.m.

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!
