RANCHO CUCAMONGA -- Kenley Jansen made his second rehab appearance and pitched a scoreless first inning against the 66ers (Angels) on a warm and windy Sunday afternoon at Rancho Cucamonga. After Jansen finished, strong pitching by Scott Barlow and a three run rally in the fourth would propel the Quakes to a 5-3 win.

Jansen was pleased with his second rehab appearance. He made 16 pitches, gave up two singles and struck out one in his one inning of work.

"Feels great," Jansen said, "My fastball is in the zone, I am happy with my slider. I treat this game just like a major league game, trying to get ready for the ninth [inning].

"I probably got four more outings out here. The next step is back to back [games], then an inning and a third, then another inning."

Barlow, the scheduled Quakes starter, pitched five innings and gave up two runs, five hits, two walks and struck out four. Rob Rogers followed and pitched two scoreless innings. An error by pitcher A.J. Vanegas, the Quakes' fourth error, made it close but Vanegas was then able to record the last two outs and pick up his first save.

The Quakes trailed 2-1 going to the bottom of the fourth. Paul Hoenecke singled in Cody Bellinger to tie the game. A safety squeeze by Dillon Moyer turned into a single and an RBI. Rob Garvey hit a sacrifice fly to score the third run of the inning.

The Quakes would add one more run in the fifth on a Jeremy Rathjen double.
