Foresters Keep the Beat Going, Win 8th Straight

The California Collegiate League All-Star Break didn’t cool off the Santa Barbara Foresters.

Santa Barbara banged out nine hits and beat the PUF Capitalists, 9-2, for its eighth straight win on Thursday night at Pershing Park.

The Foresters capitalized on an error by the right fielder on Zach Humphreys single in the second inning. Spencer Steer, who was hit by a pitch to start the inning, scored on the error. Jimmy Galusky singled with one out to drive in Humphreys for a 2-0 lead.

The Foresters scored five runs in the fourth. Galusky and David Hamilton had RBI singles, Hank LoForte singled in two runs and Austin Todd followed with a run-scoring double.

A bases-loaded walk to John McMillon scored the eighth run in the eighth inning.

Jake McDonald overcame five walks in five innings and earned the pitching win. He struck out seven and allowed only one hit. Kyle Smith, Braden Pearson, James Morris and Jake Eissler each threw an inning of relief.

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!
