Pair of Extra-Base Hits Send Nuts to 4-1 Loss

August 3, 2016

Modesto, CA. - A big sixth sank the Modesto Nuts 4-1 against the Visalia Rawhide on Tuesday night at John Thurman Field.

After two straight singles to start the sixth, Austin Byler smashed a two-run triple off Nuts (16-23; 42-67) starter Helmis Rodriguez (L, 2-8). Rodriguez retired the next two Rawhide (18-21; 64-45) hitters before Chad Oberacker lined a RBI double.

That was all Markus Solbach (W, 1-1) needed in six innings. The Rawhide starter allowed just a RBI single to Shane Hoelscher. He allowed four hits while striking out three and walking one.

Yuhei Nakaushiro (S, 2/2) issued a pair of two-out walks but struck out Hoelscher to end the game.
