Ports bats come alive, shell Nuts 10-3

On Sunday night the Stockton Ports found life in their bats as the pounded out 15 hits on their way to crushing the Modesto Nuts 10 to 3.  Bobby Crocker, 2 for 5 with a triple and a home run, and Dusty Robinson, 4 for 5 with a double and a home run led the charge for Stockton.

The starting pitcher for the Ports was Michael Ynoa.  They treated this start like a rehab start scheduling Michael to pitch 2 to 3 innings, throwing around 30 pitches.  He is still working his way back from a shoulder injury that occurred a couple of weeks ago.  Michael pitched 2 strong innings throwing 29 pitches striking out 4 batters.  Josh Bowman came on in relief and pitched the final 7 innings earning his 7th win of the season while striking out 5.  This was yet another quality start from Josh who is 3-0 in his last 4 starts.

Tony Thompson, Bruce Maxwell and Wade Kirkland each chipped in 2 hits out of Stockton’s 15 hits.  The only Port to not get a hit on Sunday was Antonio Lamas.  He did get on base with a walk in the 6th inning.  Antonio also hit a sacrifice fly in the 1st inning to drive in Bobby Crocker.  Still it was a productive game for Stockton’s 2nd baseman.

The season concludes on Monday as the Ports face the Nuts one last time.  Tanner Peters (12-7) is on the mound for the Ports as Ben Alsup (12-8) takes the hill for the Nuts.

On a personal note:  This game was sadly my last Stockton Ports game of the season.  I can’t wait until next season Stockton.  Let’s Go Ports!
