Lake Elsinore was 12 outs away from its first Cal League title in 10 years.
So close, but oh, so, so far.
Stockton scored four runs in the sixth and 11 in the seventh to blow out the Storm 15-1 in Game 3 of the Cal League Championship Series on Saturday night.
In the 11 run seventh, the Ports drew four walks and one hit batter. Three of the walks were with the bases loaded and there was a grand slam.
Lake Elsinore still leads the series 2-1. Game 4 is Sunday at 6:05 at Stockton.
