The Modesto Nuts, posing as the Modesto Cruisers for “What Might Have Been Night” at John Thurman Field, broke out of a 10-game hitting funk and cruised to a 5-1 victory over the Bakersfield Blaze on Friday night.
When the Modesto Nuts left for Bakersfield last week, they led the California League’s second-half North Division standings by a game over San Jose and Visalia. Even better, they led the race for the wild card (combination of first- and second-half records) by four games over San Jose and five over Stockton.
Bakersfield’s Kyle Petty hit a three-run homer off Devin Burke with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Blaze were 5-2 walkoff winners over the visiting Modesto Nuts on Friday night at Sam Lynn Ballpark.
The Modesto Nuts’ eight-game winning streak came to a screeching halt Thursday night, as pitcher Ryan Doran allowed just three hits in eight strong innings to lead the Visalia Rawhide to a 7-1 victory at John Thurman Field.
Wilfredo Rodriguez homered leading off the top of the 10th inning as the Modesto Nuts rallied to defeat the Stockton Ports 7-6 on Tuesday night at Banner Island Ballpark for their seventh consecutive victory.
When Modesto Nuts left fielder Dillon Thomas doubled with two outs in the fourth inning to drive in what proved to be the winning run in Tuesday’s 2-1 victory over Lake Elsinore, he was in fourth gear by the time he left the batter’s box.
