Foresters suffer first loss at NBC World Series

A Schauer soaked the Foresters with their first loss in the National Baseball Congress World Series on Tuesday.

Lucas Schauer of the Kansas Valley Center Diamond Dogs held the defending champions to three hits a 7-0 complete-game performance in Wichita, Kan. Schauer struck out six and walked two.

It was the first loss of the double-elimination tournament for the Foresters and the first shutout defeat since 2013.

The Foresters got a solid pitching performance from starter Justin Camp. He scattered five hits and gave up one run in six innings. Once Camp left the game, the Diamond Dogs took advantage of a shaky Santa Barbara bullpen in the seventh inning. Three Forester relievers (Tyler Cohen, Dalton Brown and Andres Nunez) allowed six runs on five walks, two hit batters, and a pair of hits.

The Foresters return to action on Thursday.
