But starter Murphy Smith had a rough outing, allowing 4 runs, 3 earned, on 8 hits over 4 innings to take the loss.

First Baseman Tony Thompson

(2 for 4 / Triple / RBI)



Worth Noting: First baseman Tony Thompson tripled in a run and second baseman Nino Leyja doubled in a run in Stockton’s 4-run 6th inning, but the Ports still came up 1 run short. Starter Blake Treinen allowed 5 runs, 4 earned, over 5 innings to take the loss.

Burlington Bees   3

(LP – Urlaub 4-3 / 3.04)


Farmhand Of The Game:

Pitcher A.J. Cole

(5 IP / 0 ER / 6 K)



Worth Noting: Starter A.J. Cole had another solid outing for Burlington, allowing just 1 unearned run, while walking 1 and striking out 6 in 5 innings of work, but right-hander Jose Macias allowed 2 runs and left-hander Jeff Urlaub gave up the game-winning run in the top of the 8th inning to take the loss. The Bees could only manage 6 hits against Beloit on Thursday. Outfielder Rashun Dixon had 2 of those hits, including a triple and a homer in the loss.
