Pitcher Seth Streich

(5 IP / 5 H / 0 ER / 1 BB / 2 K)

RHP Seth Streich turned in another solid start for Stockton, tossing 5 scoreless innings and leaving his team with a 3-run lead on Wednesday. Unfortunately, LHP Jeremy Barfield gave up 3 solo home runs in 2 innings of relief to allow Visalia to come back and tie the game. Barfield vultured the win though after Stockton took back the lead in the top of the 8th, and RHP Tucker Healy earned his 3rd save after striking out 6 in 2 scoreless innings to close out the game. Second baseman Wade Kirkland and outfielder Aaron Shipman both singled and drove in a run in the 4th, while shortstop Daniel Robertson singled, doubled, and hit his 3rd home run, a solo shot, in the 5th, and designated hitter Renato Nunez doubled in the 8th and eventually came around to score the winning run for the Ports on third baseman Ryon Healy’s sacrifice fly.
