Santa Barbara has laid a claim on being the team of the decade by winning its third national championship since 2008 with a 3-2 win over the defending national champion Seattle Studs Saturday in Wichita.

The Studs took the lead in the bottom of the third with an RBI single, and the Foresters tied the game in the top of the sixth.

The Studs scored again in the seventh, and the Foresters answered in the top of the eighth to keep the game tied, 2-2.

Neither team scored until the top of the 12th inning when a two-out RBI double by Granger Studdard scored Ford Stainback.

Max Whitt led off the 12th for the Studs with a hit, but the next three batters went down in order, and the Foresters had their  fifth championship in nine years and their third in four years.

The Studs played in their third consecutive title game and fourth in five years, only winning in 2013.

The Foresters are a perfect 3-0 against the Studs in championship games (2008, 2012 and 2014).
