Foresters fall to Seattle at NBC World Series

Published On: Aug 08 2013 01:49:08 AM CDT

Santa Barbara not only allowed their first runs of the tournament but they suffered a 3-2 loss to the Seattle Studs.


The Santa Barbara Foresters were not only scored upon but they were beaten at the National Baseball Congress World Series. Seattle scored on a wild pitch in the seventh inning to edge the Foresters 3-2 in a rematch of last year's championship game won by Santa Barbara.

The back-to-back champion Foresters are still alive in this double-elimination tournament and are in the final six teams of the NBC World Series. Santa Barbara plays El Dorado of Kansas on Thursday night at 8 p.m. Pacific time in a do or die game for both clubs.

The Foresters had won their first three games of this tournament on three consecutive shutouts. But Seattle broke through right way with a run in the first inning on a ground out.

Trailing 3-2 in the top of the ninth, Joey Epperson ended the game by flying out with the bases loaded.
