First Baseman Ryon Healy

(Grand Slam)

First baseman Ryon Healy did all the damage Stockton would need in the 1st inning on Wednesday night. With two outs and the bases loaded in the bottom of the 1st, Healy stepped to the plate and slugged a grand slam to give Stockton an edge that Inland Empire would never erase. Outfielder Zeke DeVoss singled in another run in the 2nd, while third baseman Renato Nunez had a pair of hits for the Ports. Starter Jake Sanchez did a good job for Stockton, allowing 3 runs, 2 earned, and striking out 7 over 7 innings to earn his 6th win, while LHP Chris Lamb tossed a scoreless 8th and RHP Austin House pitched a perfect 9th for his 14th save. Meanwhile, RHP Seth Streich, who was pulled from Tuesday night’s game in the 1st inning with an apparent injury, will skip his next start while he undergoes further examination on his right shoulder.

RHP Chris Jensen turned in his 6th straight quality start for the RockHounds on Tuesday, but Midland couldn’t manage to pull out the win. Acquired from Colorado in the Brett Anderson trade, the 23-year-old has been one of the Hounds’ most consistent starters while allowing a remarkably miniscule 3 home runs over 129 innings this season. On Tuesday, Jensen allowed 2 runs, only 1 earned, on just 3 hits and left after 7 innings with the game tied. But in the 8th, RHP Marcus Walden loaded the bases before LHP Omar Duran came on to surrender a grand slam. Midland managed just 3 hits in the game, with outfielder Kent Matthes homering for the 4th straight day – and he now has 5 home runs in his last 4 games.
