Single-A: Lake Elsinore (70-60)

Last night Lake Elsinore lost their second game and the series to the Stockton Ports 11-3. One of the few bright spots offensively for the Storm was RF Luis Domoromo. He went 2-for-4 with a double and one RBI. While CF Mallex Smith went 1-for-4 with a double and 1 run scored.

Starter Colin Rea struggled last night. He allowed 5 runs (4 earned) on 9 hits and 1 walk while striking out 4 lasting only 3 innings. It is defiantly not one of Rea’s strongest start and he now owns an ERA of 4.05 on the season.

Lake Elsinore are currently locked in a three-way ties with Inland Empire and Lancaster. Tonight the Storm begin a three-game series against the Bakersfield Blaze. The Blaze and 2 games below .500 so if the Storm play their cards right they should be able to have a sweep and maintain their position in first place as they head into their final home stand beginning this upcoming Tuesday and final week of the season. The Storm have their destiny in their own hands and have a strong chance of making the playoffs.
