Farmhand Of The Game:

First Baseman Ryon Healy

(Grand Slam)

First baseman Ryon Healy did all the damage Stockton would need in the 1st inning on Wednesday night. With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 1st, Healy stepped to the plate and slugged a grand slam to give Stockton an edge that Inland Empire would never erase. Outfielder Zeke DeVoss singled in another run in the 2nd, while third baseman Renato Nunez had a pair of hits for the Ports. Starter Jake Sanchez did a good job for Stockton, allowing 3 runs, 2 earned, and striking out 7 over 7 innings to earn his 6th win, while LHP Chris Lamb tossed a scoreless 8th and RHP Austin House pitched a perfect 9th for his 14th save. Meanwhile, RHP Seth Streich, who was pulled from Tuesday night’s game in the 1st inning with an apparent injury, will skip his next start while he undergoes further examination on his right shoulder.
