Foresters Pound 15 hits, 5 Triples in Blowout Win Over Barons

The Foresters blasted five triples and six players drove in runs in a 13-4 rout of the MLB Academy Barons on Wednesday in Compton.

Michael Neustifter led the way for Santa Barbara, hitting two triples and knocking in three runs.

Logan Allen, Luke Ritter and Connor Woods also hit triples. Allen, Cash and Woods each had two RBI and Utah Jones and Brandon Zargoza drove in one run apiece. The Foresters banged out 15 hits.

The Foresters scored four runs in the second inning to break a 1-1 tie. They added two in the third and one in the fourth to increase the lead 8-1.

Elliott Anderson, who replaced starter Kamron Fields in the fifth inning, picked up the win. Anderson threw two innings and allowed two runs on three hits.

Dane Acker allowed one hit in two innings and Chase Walker pitched a hitless ninth.

The Forester (34-5) play their final home game Thursday against the Santa Barbara Grizzlies at Pershing Park.

On Saturday and Sunday, they’ll play in the California Collegiate League playoffs at Cal Lutheran before heading to Wichita, Kan., for the National Baseball Congress World Series.

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!
