STOCKTON (AP) — Robert Mullen hit a two-run single in the seventh inning, leading the Stockton Ports to a 4-3 win over the San Jose Giants on Tuesday.

The single by Mullen scored Jonah Bride and Jeremy Eierman and was the game’s last scoring play.

Heliot Ramos hit a solo home run in the first inning to give the Giants a 1-0 lead. The Ports came back to take a 2-1 lead in the fourth inning when Bride hit a two-run home run.

San Jose regained the lead 3-2 after it scored two runs in the seventh inning on RBI singles by David Villar and Manuel Geraldo.

Wandisson Charles (1-0) got the win in relief while Caleb Simpson (1-2) took the loss in the California League game.


VISALIA (AP) — Jake Scheiner hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning, and Jack Larsen doubled and singled twice as the Modesto Nuts topped the Visalia Rawhide 9-4 on Tuesday.

The home run by Scheiner capped a four-run inning and gave the Nuts a 6-1 lead after Connor Kopach hit an RBI double earlier in the inning.

Modesto right-hander Penn Murfee (3-0) picked up the win after allowing two runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings. Opposing starter Cole Stapler (3-5) took the loss in the California League game after a rough outing in which he allowed five runs and seven hits over four innings.

Alex King singled three times for the Rawhide.

Despite the loss, Visalia is 11-5 against Modesto this season.
