In a repeat of Sunday’s big win over Conejo, the Foresters beat the Halos 8-1 Tuesday night, led by 15 hits and highlighted by a four-run first and a great start by Tanner Lawson.

As Santa Barbara heads into the home stretch of the CCL season, every win puts them one step closer to a guaranteed spot in the postseason league playoffs.

The Sters got on the board quickly against Ventura, using, as they have so often this year, clutch two-out hitting. With two men on, Bret Boswell banged a two-out, two-run double to open the scoring. He jogged home a moment later ahead of Tyler Adkison’s fourth homer of the season.

That was more than enough for Lawson, who threw six innings of three-hit ball, allowing only one run while striking out five. Ryan Shetter and Max Gibbs closed things with three perfect innings of relief.

Ventura didn’t help themselves, as errors led to five unearned runs. One came in the fourth, when Matt Henderson scored on a Travis Moniot single that eluded an outfielder. Hank LoForte then drove in Moniot with the first of his two hits on the night.

Adkison came through again in the fifth, driving in Hunter Williams, who had doubled and stolen third, with his third RBI of the game. He then added a steal of his own, setting him up to score on Dylan Paul’s single.

The Foresters head home for Wednesday important matchup against the SoCal Catch, beginning at 5 pm at UCSB.

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!
