After mustering only three runs over a four-game road trip to San Jose, the Modesto Nuts found their bats in Visalia.
A two-run second inning and four-run fifth was all Modesto needed Friday in a 6-1 victory over the Oaks that ended a four-game losing streak.
Cole Garner tripled to right field to open the second, then scored on Mike McKenry's single to center. After a Daniel Mayora double moved McKenry to third, Jay Cox drove in the second run with a single to right.
Victor Ferrante drove in Nick Haley, who reached on an error, with a two-run homer in the fifth to make the score 4-1, giving the Nuts more runs than they scored over 36 innings in San Jose.
Modesto pounded 15 hits Friday, including at least one from every starting position player except second baseman Geoff Strickland.
Modesto starter Aneury Rodriguez (4-3) allowed just one run over 7 innings, striking out seven and walking one. David Patton allowed no runs and only two hits over the final two innings to close the game.
