-The Topes blew an early 4-0 lead but pushed back ahead in the 6th with a Luis Cruz solo homer. Cruz fell a triple short of the cycle. The pen took control, with Josh Wall striking out the side for the save. Since opening day, through 11 innings, he's allowed no runs and 1 hit. SVS came in late and tripled, while Fedex doubled and Sands singled.
-Chris Withrow posted a solid start, throwing plenty of strikes while punching out 7 in 6 innings. He didn't allow a walk, which is important for the 23 year old who's had control problems over the years. Jake Lemmerman homered for the first time this season and stole a pair of bases. Kyle Russell also had two hits and walked once. Gorman Erickson also drove in a run.
-Rancho Cucamonga got a first inning, two run homer from Austin Gallagher and held the lead until the 7th, when Angel Sanchez was pulled after allowing two baserunners. Jon Michael Redding came in and allowed a triple and a sac fly to surrender the lead. The Quakes came back with 3 of their own in the bottom of the inning, only to allow another 3 spot in the 8th. Sanchez pitched fairly well until the 7th, while Redding and Logan Bawcom struggled, allowing all of their inherited runners to score. Rancho had just 5 hits, being gifted 7 errors from Inland Empire but going 0 for 7 with RISP.
Angel Sanchez has a bounce back start, while Great Lakes mounts an impressive comeback…
