Rancho Cucamonga, CA - The Rancho Cucamonga offense slugged three home runs on Wednesday morning, on their way to a 6-4 victory over the Inland Empire 66ers.

The win for the Quakes gives them two straight in the three-game series and a fourth straight series-win overall.

Marcus Chiu, Stevie Berman and Carlos Rincon all went yard, helping Rancho get a game over the 500-mark at home for the first time this year and nine games over .500 overall for the first time in 2019.

Chiu's third of the year came in the home-half of the first, as the Quakes took a 1-0 lead against Inland Empire starter Jake Lee (1-1).

Leading 2-1 in the third, Nick Yarnall singled home Rincon and then rode home on Berman's first round-tripper of the year, making it 5-1 after three innings.
