RANCHO CUCAMONGA -- The Giants continued their mastery over the Quakes this season as the Giants won their fifth of five contests against the Quakes this season, tonight by a 7-6 score in 11 innings at a sold out LoanMart Field.

Willie Calhoun was the star of the game for the Quakes going 4-for-5 with three runs scored, two RBI and a home run.

Chase De Jong started for the Quakes and in his five innings of work, De Jong gave up four runs (three earned), eight hits, a walk and struck out three. Michael Johnson followed with a scoreless inning.

The Giants scored first when Daniel Carbonell drove in the rehabbing Angel Pagan with a ground out to shortstop. The Quakes would tie the game in the second, Tyler Ogle scored on a single by Spencer Navin.

The Giants went ahead when they scored two runs in the third, one of the runs was unearned as Carbonell scored on an error by leftfielder Jacob Scavuzzo. The Quakes scored one in the bottom of the third as Willie Calhoun scored on Cody Bellinger's sacrifice fly.

The Giants extended their lead to two runs again when Jeff Kobernus singled in Aramis Garcia. In the fifth inning, the Quakes cut the lead to one again on Calhoun's home run to right.

In the seventh inning and one out, Navin doubled but then was out at home when Pagan threw him out trying to score on Samson's single. Samson did take second on throw and that paid off as Calhoun got his fourth hit of the night to score Samson and tie the game.

After Scavuzzo walked, Cody Bellinger doubled in both runners to give the Quakes their first lead of the night.

That lead was short-lived when Angel Villalona two-run home run off Joe Broussard tied the game. The Quakes almost regained the lead but Carbonell threw out Paul Hoenecke trying to score on Navin's single.

Josh Sborz pitched an impressive ninth inning for the Quakes, striking out two and getting Angel Pagan to fly out to left.

In the 11th inning, Karch Kowalcyzk gave up two hits to put runners on first and third and then Tyler Horan drove in the winning run.

The Quakes were retired in order to end the game, all by strikeout.
