Foresters’ Season-Opening 15-Game Win Streak Ends at Healdsburg

The Foresters struck out 15 times and ended up suffering their first loss of the season after a record 15 straight wins, falling at the Healdsburg Prune Packers, 3-0, on Tuesday.

Santa Barbara was held to five hits by Healdsburg pitchers Ian Villers, Jackson Cunningham and Chrit Rudkin. Villares led the Prune Packers with six strikeouts, Cunningham had five and Rudkin four.

Healdsburg jumped on Foresters starter Tanner Biibee for two runs in the first inning. Wendel Champion led off the game with a double and scored on an error on Ryan Ruley’s ball hit to shortstop. At second base, Riley advanced to third on a fly out to center and scored on a wild pitch.

Healdsburg made it 3-0 in the fifth on a RBI double by Quentin Selma off of James Notary.

The Foresters put runners at second base in the sixth and seventh, but Cunningham was able to quell the threats.

The Foresters complete their road trip to Healdsburg on Wednesday with a doubleheader. The first game is at 3 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!
