Rancho Cucamonga, CA – Rancho slugged three home runs on Wednesday night and got some strong pitching in an 8-3 win over the Inland Empire 66ers at LoanMart Field.

Julio Carrion (5), Damon Keith (8) and Luis Diaz (8) all went deep and the Quakes stayed within two games of first-place Lake Elsinore, now with just seven to play in the first half of the regular season.

Quakes’ starter Jerming Rosario didn’t go the necessary five innings, but gave the Quakes 4.2 innings of solid work, allowing just one run on three hits in the no-decision.

Rosario needed a bit of help, as he departed in a 2-1 game, with the tying run at third and the go-ahead run at first base. Martin Santana was up for the challenge though, as he quickly got out of the fifth, before working a 1-2-3 sixth to earn the win.

Kelvin Bautista gave the Quakes two innings of scoreless baseball to finish it off.

Inland Empire starter Jack Kochanowicz (0-1) surrendered two runs on two hits over 3.2 innings in the loss.

Rancho (33-26) will look for a second straight win on Thursday, sending River Ryan (0-1) to the mound against Connor Van Scoyoc (3-4) at 6:30pm.

Thursday is another Thirsty Thursday, with $3 Pepsi products and other drink specials throughout the night. Tickets are available at rcquakes.com. We hope to see you at LoanMart Field...Go Quakes!
