Modesto, CA. - Four two-out RBI and six shutout innings gave the Modesto Nuts a 4-3 win against the San Jose Giants on Tuesday night at John Thurman Field.

Logan Webb (L, 1-2) started for the Giants (18-14) and recorded two quick outs in the first before back-to-back singles. Nick Zammarelli drove in both runners with his league-leading fifth triple of the year.

In the third inning, Logan Taylor recorded his second hit of the game before Zammarelli drilled a two-out double. Anthony Jimenez followed and drove Zammarelli in with a RBI single. Zammarelli went 2-for-4 with three two-out RBI.

Meanwhile, Ljay Newsome (W, 2-2) turned in his best start of the year by working six shutout innings with six strikeouts. The Nuts' (15-17) starter allowed just two baserunners to reach second base and that was it.

The Giants mounted a late comeback. They plated two runs in the eighth before Seth Elledge (S, 3/3) completed a four-out save.
