Low-A: Visalia Rawhide 6, Rancho Cucamonga Quakes 8; 39-76
Visalia’s losing streak ballooned to seven straight, as the bullpen blew two leads before completely faltering in the tenth. Despite a 1-for-14 day with runners in scoring position and stranding twelve runners on base, the Rawhide were able to get six runs across the plate thanks to eight walks and three errors by the Rancho Cucamonga defense. Ivan Melendez hit his second homer with the Rawhide in the second inning. Armed with a 4-2 lead, Spencer Giesting got torched for three runs in the sixth inning. Alfred Morillo was able to get out of the inning and pitch a scoreless seventh to put Visalia in a position to win when Kevin Graham’s sacrifice fly gave them a 6-5 lead. Listher Sosa could not hold the lead, allowing the tying run to score in the eighth and the two decisive runs in the tenth.
