RANCHO CUCAMONGA — A quiet Tuesday night at the plate eventually caught up to the Modesto Nuts.
Rancho Cucamonga broke up a scoreless game with a run in the eighth to win 1-0 and snap the Nuts' three-game winning streak.
Infielder Angelo Songco, in his third season with the Quakes, struck the first pitch from reliever Geoff Parker up the middle for a single that drove in Darnell Sweeney.
Rancho closer Michael Thomas struck out the side in the ninth, raising Modesto's strikeout total to 11. The Nuts (3-3) had only four hits and managed only one base runner past first base Brian Humphries' triple in the sixth.
