CALIFORNIA LEAGUE  (High-A)

Stockton Ports          4

Lancaster JetHawks  11

LP – Shore 1-3 / 3.12

HR – Brown 2 (7), Vidales (1)

Prospect Of The Game:

Outfielder Seth Brown

(2 for 4 / 2 Home Runs / 2 RBIs)

The Ports hit three home runs at The Hangar in Lancaster, but it wasn’t enough to keep Stockton from suffering its seventh straight loss on Sunday. Right fielder Seth Brown belted a home run in the top of the 2nd inning to tie the game 1-1, and then slugged his second solo shot of the day in the 7th to give him a team-leading 7 round-trippers on the season. Second baseman Josh Vidales smacked a solo shot of his own in the 6th, while third baseman Mikey White doubled twice and drove in a run, but that would account for all of Stockton’s scoring on Sunday. Starter Logan Shore had his rockiest outing of the season, allowing 4 runs on 8 hits over 4 1/3 frames to suffer his 3rd loss, while LHP Will Gilbert surrendered another 6 runs in just 1 2/3 innings of relief for the Ports.
