Their backs against the wall for a second night in a row, the Quakes beat High Desert in a taut pitcher's duel. Rancho scored their two in the fourth on an RBI single by Hector Estrella, and Clay Fuller's squeeze bunt. Rancho had additional men in scoring position in the first, fifth, sixth, and eighth, but failed to cash any of those opportunities. The Mavs staged a two-out rally in the top of the ninth that scored Jeffrey Dominguez on Joseph Dunigan's RBI single, but Michael Kohn struck out Travis Scott to end the game.
The series continues in Adelanto at 7:05 tonight, with a winner-take-all game. The Quakes will send Manuel Flores to the mound to counter Donnie Hume.
