The Ports won their third straight in an 11-inning walk-off to pull into a tie with Modesto for the division lead on Tuesday.

Siddall also homered to put the Ports on the board in the 5th, then walked and scored the tying run in the 7th. RHP Brendan Butler turned in another strong start for Stockton, allowing 2 runs and striking out 6 over 6 2/3 innings of work, while LHP Cody Stull tossed 2 scoreless innings in relief to pick up the win for the Ports. In other news, pitchers A.J. Puk, Casey Meisner and Evan Manarino, along with catcher Sean Murphy and outfielders Skye Bolt, Seth Brown and Tyler Ramirez were all named to the California League North Division All-Star team on Tuesday. Since Manarino, was recently reassigned to the RockHounds, he’s not likely to take part in the competition.
