By Mike Lindskog
San Bernardino, CA- The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes completed a four-game sweep of the Inland Empire 66ers, crushing their division-rivals by a score of 10-1 at San Manuel Stadium for their seventh straight win overall.
Connor Wong drove in four while Julio Urias and Isaac Anderson combined to dominate the 66ers over the first eight innings.
Rancho opened the scoring in the first, as Wong delivered a two-out triple with the bases loaded, putting Rancho ahead against starter Simon Mathews (4-6).
In the second, the Quakes put it away, as Carlos Rincon ripped a two-out double with the bases loaded, driving in all three to make it 6-0 after just two innings.
Urais, making his fourth appearance in a Rancho uniform, walked the lead-off man over each of his two innings, but didn’t allow a hit and struck out four of the eight total batters he faced.
Jeren Kendall popped a homer for Rancho, his 11th of the year, while Omar Estevez had an eighth-inning double to extend his hitting streak to 18 straight, now just two away from the longest streak in the league this year.
On Tuesday, they take their road trip to Lancaster for three straight against the JetHawks. Max Gamboa (3-1) will take on Matt Dennis (7-12) in the opener at 6:35pm.
