The Nuts notched their fourth straight win by toppling the Stockton Ports (A's) in Stockton Wednesday night. Home runs by Brian Rike (8) and Jason van Kooten (7) were enough for Kenny Durst (3-10, 5.31), who threw 5.1 innings allowing one run. The bullpen held the Ports scoreless the rest of the way. Wilin Rosario added two hits, including a double. He managed just a .323 wOBA in June despite a .474 BABIP, yet in seeing that BABIP drop to .364 in July, his wOBA is .383 this month, so he's definitely figuring things out in Modesto after some serious growing pains.

Ethan Hollingsworth (5-6, 4.05) was beaten around for 5 runs in 5 innings, though he recorded 5 K's against the first half division champs, the Lakewood Blue Claws (). Justin de Fratus (4-3, 3.67) handcuffed the Tourists all night - a Tyler Massey triple was the only extra base hit they managed all night, while the team struck out 10 times against zero walks. Singles by Delta Cleary, David Christensen, Ryan Peisel, Jordan Pacheco and Massey finished off the offense.
Jonnathan Aristil (1-5, 4.82) will try to do better against Lakewood tonight at 5:05 MDT. He's opposed by Freddy Ballestas (0-1, 3.93).
