San Jose leads the California League in earned-run average. The Giants have allowed a league-low 11 home runs and 125 runs in 336ª innings.
So like many other teams this season, Modesto didn't do much against the Giants on Monday night in a 4-0 loss on the road.
The Nuts had nine hits against San Jose pitchers Ben Snyder and Dan Griffin, but the Giants contributed on defense by turning four double plays.
Snyder (5-0) allowed seven hits in seven innings and struck out five to lower his ERA to 0.73. Griffin's ERA fell to 1.21 with two scoreless innings.
Never miss a local story.
Victor Ferrante and Cole Garner each went 3 for 4 for the Nuts.
