Foresters Explode for 7 Runs in Seventh Inning, Win 9-3

The Foresters broke open a close game with seven runs in the seventh inning and defeated the So Cal Catch 9-3 in California Collegiate League baseball game on Thursday at Pershing Park.

Logan Allen hit a three-run homer, Michael Neustifter singled in two runs and Ryan Cash and Luke Ritter each had RBI singles in the seventh.

The Foresters (18-1, 15-1 in CCL), who arrived home early Thursday morning from a road trip to Healdsburg, fell behind 1-0 in the third inning but answered in the bottom of the third. Allen doubled, moved to third on a Brandon Zaragoza groundout to second and scored on a John Jensen groundout to second.

Santa Barbara took a 2-1 lead in the sixth when Utah Jones walked, stole second, moved to third on a throwing error by the catcher and scored on a wild pitch.

Michael Hobbs gave the Foresters a quality start on the mound. He struck out nine, allowed four hits and one run in five innings. Matt Hartman followed Hobbs and threw two scoreless innings, striking out five. He picked up the win. Kamron Fields and Chase Wallace each pitched an inning to finish out the game.

The Foresters host the Santa Maria Packers on Friday at 6 p.m. at Pershing Park.

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!
