Quakes Clinch Second-Half Title in Win over the Lake Elsinore Storm

August 30, 2019 - California League (CalL) - Rancho Cucamonga Quakes News Release

Rancho Cucamonga, CA - ?????????????????????In the final regular season matchup between the two clubs, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes snatched a victory over the Lake Elsinore Storm by a final tally of 7-5.

Scoring a handful of early runs, combined with strong late-inning pitching from Gerardo Carrillo, the Quakes (80-54, 39-27) paced themselves to a sweep, and a Second-Half title, in their 21st win of the season over the Storm (70-64, 35-31).

After falling behind 1-0 in the top of the first and failing to score in the home half, Rancho exploded for seven tallies in the next two frames to hold on for good. A four-run bottom of the second featured a Jeren Kendall two-RBI single, while a three-run bottom of the third was headlined by Decon Liput's two-run double.

Kendall's pair of runs-driven-in gives him 24 RBI in 23 games played in the month of August.

Dodgers' southpaw, Julio Urias, coming back from suspension, lasted two-plus innings on the evening with two earned runs on three hits.

Padres' rehabber, Garrett Richards (0-1), went just 1.2 innings, surrendering four earned runs and four walks in a losing effort.

Carrillo (5-9) dazzled yet again, earning the win by hurling scoreless baseball from the fifth to the eighth inning. The right-hander did not issue a walk and he struck out six batters.

As Rancho begins their final series of the regular season, a four-game battle with Inland Empire, the Quakes send LHP John Rooney (5-1) to the mound and the 66ers will give the nod to RHP Kyle Bradish (5-7).
