Heyward’s double leads San Jose to win over Stockton

STOCKTON (AP) — Jacob Heyward hit a run-scoring double in the eighth inning, leading the San Jose Giants to a 5-4 win over the Stockton Ports on Monday.

The double by Heyward capped a two-run inning and gave the Giants a 5-4 lead after Gio Brusa hit a sacrifice fly earlier in the inning.

San Jose took a 3-0 lead on an RBI double by Brusa in the sixth inning. Stockton answered in the seventh inning when Sandber Pimentel hit a three-run home run and Nate Mondou drew a bases-loaded walk.

Nolan Riggs (3-4) got the win with 2 1/3 innings of scoreless, one-hit relief while Pat Krall (1-1) took the loss in the California League game. Frank Rubio recorded his fourth save of the season.
