Yadier Alvarez made his second appearance in this one, but a walk, double and sac fly would give the Isotopes their 5-0 lead.

Caleb Ferguson made his 3rd rehab appearance.  He allowed a single and issued a walk.  A line drive up the middle was right where Ty Kelly was playing.  He got the line drive and stepped on 2nd for the DP.

Box Score


Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 4 vs Lake Elsinore Storm (Padres) 5

On the Mound

The highly unpredictable and inconsistent Edgardo Henriquez started. In 4.0 IP he was touched only for a single.  He also recorded 6 punchouts in his 4.0 innings.

Huei-Sheng Lin followed Henriquez to the mound in the 5th, and immediately ran into trouble.  A single and HR cut the Quakes lead in half; 4-2 after 5.

With Lin still on the mound, Lin surrendered a HR, cutting the lead to 1.  A walk and HBP put two runners on.  On a ground ball, an unearned run scored the tying run on a throwing error trying to complete the DP.

Kelvin Bautista relieved Lin and got the final out of the 7th.

After the Quakes could not score after loading the bases with one out in the top of the 9th, with Bautista still on the hill, Justin Farmer opened the inning with a single.  After two outs and a WP, LHRP Bautista intentionally walked Pierce Jones.  This was presumably done to face the left-handed Max Ferguson vs the right-handed Jones.  The strategy failed as Ferguson had a walk off single for the come from behind victory.


At the Plate

In the 2nd inning, an Austin Gauthier single and Jake Vogel triple scored the initial run of the game.

In the 4th, Damon Keith doubled to open the inning.  A walk to Gauthier put runners on 1st and 2ndYeiner Fernandez singled to score KeithJake Vogel hit into a force out and moved Gauthier to 3rdJulio Carrion doubled to score Gauthier and move Vogel to 3rdVogel scored on a ground ball.
