Modesto Nuts

Oaks pounce on Nuts

Saturday was a rough night for the Modesto Nuts.

The host Visalia Oaks jumped all over starting pitcher Brandon Durden for an 11-1 victory.

The Oaks scored five runs in the first inning on six hits, an error and a sacrifice fly.

Durden allowed 11 hits and nine runs (four earned) in six innings. Visalia took advantage of two more Nuts errors to expand its lead.

Eric Young Jr. was the only Modesto player with two hits. He drove in Nick Haley in the fifth for the Nuts' lone run.
