Local Digest: Modesto Nuts defeat Inland Empire

May 28, 2014 

Sean Dwyer’s two-run home run put the Modesto Nuts ahead to stay Wednesday night during their 3-2 victory over the Inland Empire 66ers. Modesto’s fourth win in six games featured Dwyer’s second homer of the season, a shot to right in the fourth after a double by David Kandilas. The Nuts added another run in the fifth when Matt Wessinger – after he struck out but advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher – scored on a two-out RBI single by Kyle Von Tungeln. Devin Burke (4-1) pitched six shutout innings, allowed seven hits and struck out five. Inland Empire scored twice in the eighth and had the tying run at third before Modesto reliever Shane Broyles struck out Joe Weik. Rayan Gonzalez retired the 66ers in order in the ninth for his second save. The Nuts and 66ers meet in the rubber game of the three-game series tonight at San Bernardino.
