Prospect Of The Game:

Pitcher Dalton Sawyer

(5 IP / 2 H / 0 ER / 0 BB / 4 K / Win)

LHP Dalton Sawyer returned from the disabled list to help the Ports prevail for the third time in their last four games and move into a three-way tie for first place in their division on Tuesday. Last year’s 9th-round draft pick for the A’s allowed just 2 hits over 5 scoreless frames to earn the win, and he’s now given up just 2 earned runs over his last 20 innings for Stockton. Right fielder Seth Brown singled, walked and homered for the third straight game, giving him a team-leading 23 round-trippers and extending his league-leading RBI total to 89. Left fielder Brett Siddall and shortstop Eli White both slugged solo shots, while third baseman Mikey White collected 3 hits, including a double, and second baseman Branden Cogswell and designated hitter Richie Martin had a pair of hits apiece for the Ports. And while Dalton Sawyer returned from the disabled list, RHP Norge Ruiz was placed on the DL with a sore elbow on Tuesday.
