In the first Vivas led off with a single.  Diego Cartaya was HBP and Leonard singled home Vivas for the game’s 1st run.  In the 2nd, Vivas hit a solo HR (5).  In the 3rd, with one out, José Ramos singled.  That was followed by an Imanol Vargas walked.  With 2 outs, Kekai Rios singles to score Ramos.  In the 5th, the Loons scored their final run in an odd fashion.  Eddys Leonard led off with a triple (1).  In currently typical Dodger fashion, after two outs Leonard was still at 3rd.  However, 2 walks and a HBP plates Leonard.


Box Score


Inland Empire 66ers (LAA)  3 vs Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 8 

On the Mound

20 year old RHP Jerming Rosario from Peravia, DR, was solid, but not elite in his 12th game (10 starts) for the Quakes.  He pitched 4.2 innings before he reached that 75 pitch limit (74 actually).  Really, not one more out so he could be in a position for the win?  He did give up his one run in the 5th, and he left with two runners on.  Jerming’s line was:

4.2 IP, 1 R, 3 H, 2 BB, and 4 K.  He has a lot of growth ahead of him, but I am still a fan.

Martin Santana got the final out of the 5th and pitched a perfect 6th, with one K.  Orlando Ortiz-Mayr followed Santana and served up a 2-run HR in his 1 inning.  Kelvin Bautista finished the game with a scoreless two innings.  He issued one walk, and got 2 Ks.


At the Plate

The Quakes scored in the 2nd on an Austin Gauthier walk and Yunior Garcia runs coring double.  The Quakes then proceeded to score at least one run in every inning from the 4th thru the 8th.

The Quakes had a total of 9 hits, but 6 were XBH.  Besides Garcia’s run scoring double, the Quakes got doubles from Julio Carrion and Kenneth Betancourt.  The Quakes also slugged three HRs.  Julio Carrion hit a solo HR (5) in the 4th, Damon Keith hit a solo HR (8) in the 5th, and Luis Yanel Diaz hit a 2-run HR (8) in the 7th.


Luis Yanel Diaz, Yunior Garcia, and Julio Carrion each had 2 hits with Diaz and Carrion also contributing a pair of RBIs.  Quakes batters totaled 9 hits and 11 walks. And while they did score 8, they left 12 runners on base.
