Rancho Cucamonga, CA - After surrendering a lead in the middle innings, the Quakes rallied from behind to extend their franchise-best winning streak to 14 straight games with a 5-4 victory over the Lancaster JetHawks.

Jared Walker supplied the game-winning swing after Rancho lost their early 2-0 advantage, giving the Quakes their ninth straight home win.

Trailing 3-2 in the fourth, Cristian Santana and Connor Wong strung together a pair of one-out singles against Lancaster starting pitcher Matt Dennis (6-9). After Logan Landon struck out, Jared Walker stepped to the plate and hammered a 413 foot home run to vault Rancho back in front 5-3.

Quakes starter Leo Crawford entered with a lead in the fifth but was replaced by Ryan Moseley after recording an out and allowing two runners to reach. Moseley (3-2) allowed a run to score to the record of Crawford during the inning but went on to toss a scoreless sixth in the win. Logan Salow and Andre Scrubb covered the final three scoreless innings out of the bullpen and Scrubb recorded his first save as a Quake.

Early on, Cody Thomas put Rancho up 1-0 with his eleventh home run of the season coming in the first. Connor Wong followed with a solo-shot in the second, his first home run since May 27th to make it 2-zip.
