HiA – The Quakes had three of their top prospects playing in their series finale against the JetHawks (Astros) and that was enough for a 9 - 3 win.  Chris Anderson started and gave up 2 runs in five innings pitched.  Anderson also allowed 4 hits, 4 walks while striking out 5.  Julio Urias pitched two innings in relief, he retired all 6 batters he faced, striking out 4.  All nine players in the lineup had at least one hit.  Corey Seager was 2 for 4 with a walk.  Jon Garcia and Steve Proscia each went 3 for 5 with a home run.  Proscia drove in two runs to Garcia's three runs batted in.  Tyler Ogle was 1 for 5 with a three-run home run.  Aaron Miller was 1 for 5 with a triple.
