In his second start of the season, RHP Blake Hassebrock allowed 2 runs on 5 hits while walking 4 and striking out 7 over 4 1/3 innings on Wednesday. Designated hitter Max Muncy’s 4th home run of the year provided the Ports’ only scoring until the 9th inning, when Stockton scored 2, thanks to a double by Muncy followed by RBI singles by catcher Ryan Ortiz and second baseman Antonio Lamas, to tie the game. With 2 outs in the bottom of the 13th inning, catcher Ryan Delgado slammed a walk-off solo shot to end the game. RHP Pedro Vidal threw 3 scoreless innings in relief and RHP Jonathan Joseph struck out 4 over 2 scoreless innings to earn the win. In other news, shortstop Addison Russell was placed on the 7-day disabled list retroactive to April 7.

    I didn’t realize that the ankle bone was connected to the back bone, but I guess that you learn something new every day! :)
