By Mike Lindskog

San Jose, CA – Rancho’s magical run continued on Friday night in San Jose, as the club earned their franchise record-tying 11th straight win, a 4-0 decision over the San Jose Giants at Municipal Stadium.

The only other time the Quakes have won 11 straight was in 1999, when the Quakes were a San Diego Padres’ affifliate.

Issac Anderson tossed five innings of two-hit baseball, while Steve Berman reached base four times and led Rancho’s offensive attack with an RBI and a run scored.

Berman put the Quakes on the board in the second, as his RBI double scored Jeren Kendall for a 1-0 lead over San Jose starter Sandro Cabrera (6-4).

In the fourth, Rancho added to their lead, as Gavin Lux picked up his first of two RBIs, legging out a fielder’s choice to score Connor Wong for a 2-0 lead.

The Quakes got two more in the ninth inning for a little insurance, as Lux singled home a run to extend his personal hitting streak to nine straight, making it 3-0. Logan Landon capped the inning with a run-scoring hit, as he scored Jared Walker to make it 4-0.

The Giants managed just five hits all night, as Anderson (4-5) combined with Ben Holmes, Austin Hamilton and Jason Richman for Rancho’s ninth shutout of the year, tied for most in the league.

The Quakes (49-37, 14-2) will try to set a new franchise record on Satuday, when they look for a 12th straight win. Dustin May (4-3) will throw for Rancho, while DJ Myers (3-2) will take the ball for San Jose.
