The Fresno BeeJune 2, 2014 

Lovin' the long ball: Rudy Flores connected for his second home run of the game in the bottom of the ninth inning — a two-run, walk-off shot that lifted the Visalia Rawhide over Lake Elsinore 8-7 in a California League game Monday at Rawhide Ballpark. Flores also hit a two-run shot in the second, upping his season total to 10 homers.

Lovin' the long ball, part II: Brandon Jacobs' solo home run, his seventh of the season, closed Visalia's deficit to 7-6 in the eighth inning.

Up next: Visalia opens a three-game series at Rancho Cucamonga at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday. The Rawhide's starting pitcher has not been announced, while the Quakes will go with RH Fabio Martinez (3-3, 4.34).
