Trevor Storys bases-loaded triple in the seventh inning broke open the Modesto Nuts 6-1 California League win at San Jose on Monday night.
The two-out rally was set up by a single by Juan Ciriaco, a walk to David Kandilas, a double steal and Chris ODowds reaching base on catchers interference before Storys big hit.
Story also singled home a run in the ninth as the Nuts snapped a three-game losing streak.
Modesto starter Devin Burke (1-1) struck out nine and gave up only an unearned run in 51/3 innings. Modesto trailed 1-0, however, until Sean Dwyers two-RBI single to right with two out in the sixth brought in Ciriaco and Kandilas.
Game 2 of the teams four-game series is tonight at 7.
