Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Casey Meisner

(4 1/3 IP / 1 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 5 K)

 

It appeared to be a much-improved version of Casey Meisner who returned to Stockton’s starting rotation on Tuesday, allowing just 1 hit while striking out 5 over 4 1/3 shutout innings, and he left the game with a 1-run lead. But RHP Joey Wagman allowed 2 runs in 1 2/3 innings of relief, and LHP Cody Stull gave up 1 run in 2 innings of work. Third baseman Melvin Mercedes tripled in 2 runs to tie the game in the bottom of the 7th inning, and it remained tied until pinch hitter John Nogowski walked with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th as Stockton won in a walk-off on Tuesday. RHP Carlos Navas tossed a scoreless 10th and 11th to pick up the win for the Ports.
