STOCKTON — The Modesto Nuts' three-game winning streak was pulverized Friday night by the swinging Stockton Ports.
The Ports pounded four home runs, two by slugger Maxwell Muncy, to drop the Nuts 9-1 at Stockton Ballpark.
Stockton stroked three homers, including back-to-back shots by Adam Rosales and Muncy, to break a 1-1 tie in the sixth. Nuts starter Tyler Anderson (0-1) lasted only 5ª innings.
Modesto struck out 13 times and avoided a shutout only via Trevor Story's run-scoring double in the third.
Earlier in the day, Niko Gallego was sent to extended spring training while Taylor Featherston (1 for 4) was promoted from extended camp and Jose Rivera was sent to Low-A Asheville.
