The San Luis Obispo Blues fell to the Santa Barbara Foresters, 12-1, in CCL play on Sunday afternoon on the campus of UC Santa Barbara.
The Foresters struck first with two runs in the bottom of the second inning, twice in the game they sent nine hitters to the plate, in the fourth and sixth innings. In each of these two innings they scored five runs to make things lopsided early against the Blues. After just six innings of play SB was in total control and leading 12-0 over the Blues. Santa Barbara out hit SLO for the game, 14 to six.
The Blues drop to 23-19 overall and 15-14 in CCL play. Santa Barbara will improve to 27-14, 20-12 CCL following Sunday's win. The Foresters also clinch the central division title with the win over SLO.
Not many bright spots in this one for the Blues, they had just six hits in the game and no player with more than one in the lineup. Although, one of those six hits was a solo home run to deep left field off the bat of All-Star third baseman, Harrison Bragg. For Bragg it was his second home run of the season, it came off ex Blues pitcher, Jackson Sigman in the top of the seventh inning. The Blues best arm used in the game was the third and final pitcher used, Jon Nicholson went 2.1 innings of shut out baseball giving up just one hit and striking out four at the plate.
The scoring got started early for SB, they scored two in the bottom of the second to lead it 2-0 after just two innings. Blues starter, Matt Mogollon would then strike out the side in order in the third before getting roughed up and taken out in the fourth. The Foresters would then hit around in the order as they sent nine men to the plate in the fourth and sixth innings and put this one out of reach early in the game. The Blues didn't help themselves out much, they committed three errors on the afternoon. They weren't just errors that the Blues could push aside or pitch around either, they were instead costly errors that also helped lead to three unearned runs in the game for SB. In the two innings the Foresters sent nine men to the plate, they also score five runs each in both those innings and the Blues just had no answer for the would be, central division champions. Matt Mogollon will take the loss for SLO while the win will go to the Santa Barbara ace, Connor Mays.
The Foresters had themselves quite the day at the plate, they had 14 hits on the afternoon, scoring 12 runs and also drawing four walks for the game against Blues pitching. Five different Foresters had multi hit games with four of those five racking up three hit games. Third year Forester and Texas Longhorn, Bret Boswell finished 2-5 including a home run, three RBI's and two runs scored. Lead off hitter, Matt Henderson, Lex Kaplan, Trevor Abrams and Hunter Stovall all had three hit games at the plate. For Stovall, the second basemen finished 3-3 scored three runs, walked once and also drove in a pair of runs for the game. The winning pitcher in the game, starter, Connor Mays went five complete innings giving up just three hits, a walk and striking out two. The SB bullpen went the final four innings of the game giving up just one run on three hits while striking out five.
Next up for SLO, Monday will be an off day while Tuesday and Wednesday will wrap up the final two games of the season. Both games will take place at home, at Sinsheimer Park in San Luis Obispo. The Blues will welcome the Ventura Halos to town Tuesday night with first pitch set for 6:00 PM. As it stands now, the Blues sit a full game behind Conejo for the fourth and final playoff spot for the CCL tournament with just two games remaining, the tournament is scheduled to begin on Friday at the MLB's Urban Youth Academy in Compton. Time is running out to catch a Blues game live, if unable to join us at the game, don't miss a pitch and follow along at. Go Blues!
The Blues fell to the Santa Barbara Foresters, 8-0, in CCL play on Saturday at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium.
Blues starter, Joe Linehard lasted just two innings while giving up three runs on five hits. The scoring got started in a loud way, a three run home run from third baseman Hunter Stovall gave a quick 3-0 lead that would be all SB needed to cruise to a 8-0 win. Linehard was removed from the game following a lead off double in the third, SB lead 4-0 after just three innings and SLO had no answer for the remainder of the evening.
The Blues drop to 22-18 overall and now 14-13 in CCL play. For Santa Barbara they improve to 26-13, 19-11 CCL following the win.
The Blues were baffled all night at the plate against Forester starter, Kyle Johnston. SLO managed just five hits for the game, striking out seven times and walking just twice for the evening. The only pitcher to throw with no runs allowed was Dan Beavers. Beavers worked one full inning, gave up one hit and struck out two in the outing. Maybe the best performance out of the bullpen for SLO came from Graham Ahlrich. The Blues reliever worked four innings, gave up one earned run on four hits and struck out two in the outing.
On a 10 pitch at bat, third baseman Hunter Stovall connected on a 3-2 pitch and belted it to deep left field for his first home run of the season and giving SB an early 3-0 lead after two innings. A Blues error defensively also helped lead to a run in the third inning and we stayed 4-0 until the sixth inning. With one out in the inning, SB then had a string of six straight hitters reach base while plating two of them and sending eight men to the plate. Just for good measure, the Foresters added the final two runs of the game from either side on a two RBI single from Bret Boswell making it 8-0 heading to the ninth. The blues were put down in order in the top half of the ninth inning and giving Santa Barbara an 8-0 shut out victory. The final six hitters were all retired in order for SLO. Starter, Joe Linehard gets the loss for the Blues, his first, while Kyle Johnston gets the win for SB, going seven complete innings allowing just five hits, striking out six and giving up no runs.
Santa Barbara scored eight runs on 13 hits and took it to the visiting Blues in dominating fashion. Their starter, Kyle Johnston really help set the tone from the first pitch on and completely mowed down the offensive attack from SLO. He helped quite the bats, while his team was anything but quiet at the plate, 13 hits and three guys in the starting lineup with multi hit efforts. Hank Laforte finished 2-5 with an RBI and run scored, shortstop Bret Boswell had three hits, going 3-4 with a run scored and nine hitter, Hunter Stovall also had two hits including his first long ball of the season and finished 2-4 with two runs scored and driving in three.
These same two teams will meet right back at the campus of UC Santa Barbara on Sunday. Beginning at 1:30 we will resume a game that will be picked up from June 22nd in the top of the twelfth inning in a 2-2 tie, a game that was originally called and suspended due to darkness at the time. Following the completion of this resumed game, a regular nine inning contest will follow directly after the final out is made. The Blues fight for their playoff lives and will need to win to stay in the hunt, one Santa Barbara victory will crown the Foresters as Central Division Champions. Join us while we're on the road and will have live audio/video at.

MEDICAL CENTER TOBRING TEDDY BEARS
Several groups came together this summer to bring cute and cuddly teddy bears to kids in Sierra Vista's Medical Center's emergency room.
For every double play the local Blues Baseball team turned, the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District donated two teddy bears to Sierra Vista Medical Center’s emergency room.
During this past season, the Blues were able to complete forty-seven double plays; meaning that ninety-four kids between the ages of three and twelve received the teddy bears.
Those gifts were passed out to children on Wednesday morning.
