Quakes keep lead at 2 in dramatic fashion

After beating the Mavericks 4-1, the 66ers were 3 outs away from closing to within one game of the Quakes for the final playoff spot.

But the Quakes rallied for five runs in the ninth inning and Jeremy Moore’s walk-off three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth gave the Quakes an 8-7 victory over Stockton.f

There are nine games remaining for both teams. On Saturday, the Quakes will face Rancho Cucamonga HS alumnus Scott Hodsdon, starting for Stockton.
