RHP Dylan Covey, who was Stockton’s most reliable starter over the course of the season, had a rocky outing on Wednesday and ended up being charged with 5 runs, 4 earned, on 10 hits over 4 innings of work to take the loss in the first game of the best-of-three California League North Division Mini-Series. RHP Lou Trivino pitched 2 perfect frames in relief, while RHP Sam Roberts allowed 2 unearned runs in 2/3 of an inning, and RHP Carlos Navas got the final four outs for the Ports. Designated hitter Franklin Barreto doubled in Stockton’s first run in the top of the 5th and also singled in the game, while center fielder Brett Vertigan singled, walked and scored a run, and shortstop Yairo Munoz had a pair of hits for the Ports. The series shifts to Stockton on Thursday as the Ports try to stave off elimination with RHP Daniel Mengden on the mound.
