Seventeen players from the 2014 South Atlantic champion Asheville Tourists join the Modesto Nuts, who look to rebound from a 43-97 record. The 140-game season begins Thursday night when the Nuts open a seven-game trip at Lake Elsinore.
The Modesto Nuts had the tying run 90 feet from home plate with one out in the top of the ninth inning, but Visalia closer Enrique Burgos struck out Derek Jones and pinch-hitter Kyle Von Tungeln to preserve a 3-2 victory for the Rawhide on Wednesday at Recreation Park.
