The Modesto Nuts nearly doubled their hitting total from the previous night.
Yet, they didn't turn those knocks into runs. The result: A 9-3 loss to the Stockton Ports at Stockton Ballpark.
Only two players (Cole Garner and Victor Ferrante) had multiple hits for Modesto, which has lost four of its last five games.
The Ports improved their California League-leading record to 22-8 with some help from former Modesto A's player Jed Morris. The catcher was 3 for 4 with his sixth home run of the season and four RBIs.
Modesto looks to avoid the three-game sweep when the teams play today at 2:05 p.m.
