Blue Pirates Bang Out 6-3 Win Versus New Jersey
Ontario beat New Jersey on the strength of starter José Esquivel's fine effort. The right-hander led his team to a 6-3 win. The winning pitcher was Esquivel, now 2-0. He tossed 6 innings of 4-hit ball, while walking 1 and fanning 6. Earning his 4th save of the year was Edwin Mercer.

Steve Bruce brought the hometown crowd to its feet with no one out in the bottom of the fourth. That's when the 26-year old second baseman belted a 2-run home run. With the round-tripper, the Blue Pirates took the lead, 3-2.

"Nice to see our side come away with the win," Esquivel said after the game.

The Athletics fall to 5-6 and continue their wobbly start to the 2045 season.
