Shane Hoelscher scored the only run of the game on a wild pitch in the tenth inning to deliver a walk-off victory for the Santa Barbara Foresters over the San Luis Obispo Blues on Wednesday night.
Hoelscher led off the bottom of the tenth inning and reached on an error by Blues shortstop Ryan Walker. He moved to third on a one-out single by Nick Melino and scored with two outs on a wild pitch uncorked by Parker Ray.
The Foresters snapped the Blues' nine game winning streak to improve to 6-2 in California Collegiate League play and 11-6 overall. They are in a virtual tie for first with San Luis Obispo, which dropped to 7-3 in league and 12-5 overall. The two rivals shared the CCL title last season.
Dylan Munger started for the Blues and threw six shutout innings, giving up just 4 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 7. Former Cuesta pitcher Phillip Gerber pitched two shutout innings of relief before Ray took over in the ninth.
Ian McCarthy limited the Blues to just one hit over the first five innings. Andrew Vasquez, Willie Kuhl, Albert Minnis and Hunter Lemke threw four shutout innings of relief. Lemke earned the win.
The Foresters out-hit the Blues 5-2. Luke Plucheck led the Foresters with 2 hits. Tanner Witt and Patrick Quintanilla had the only hits for the Blues.
The teams play the rubber match of their series on Thursday at 5pm at UCSB.
