STOCKTON - On Saturday, June 9, the Stockton Ports hosted Raider Nation at Banner Island Ballpark. The Raider Cheerleaders were on-hand, as many Raiders fans showed their support for the Ports. Fittingly, the game was a high-scoring affair, with the Ports winning by a field goal, 10-7. We have photos from the game inside...

Raiders fans showed their team pride at Banner Island Ballpark on Saturday. The game drew a crowd of 4799, one of the Ports' biggest crowds all season.

Lefty Bobby Cramer earned the win by going five innings. He allowed three earned runs on four hits. He used an effective array of breaking pitches to strike-out six Mavericks while walking only one. Cramer, who was out of baseball for nearly two years before signing with the A's in May, moved his record to 2-0.

Stockton jumped on High Desert starter Ruben Flores for four runs in the second inning. The first run scored on a solo homerun by Tom Everidge. The homer was his 10th of the season. Everidge reached base three times on Saturday.

The Ports scored three runs in the third inning. The big blow was a three-run triple by Steve Kleen. Kleen had a huge game, going 4-5 with two runs scored and three RBI. He finished a homer short of the cycle.

Justin Sellers was all over the basepaths on Saturday. He went 3-4 with an RBI and a walk. Sellers started the season slowly, but he has his average up to .260 on the year.

Jose Pineda admires his two-run double in the second inning. Pineda would also hit a solo homer later in the game. The homer was his 10th and the double was his fifth of the season.

Anthony Recker homered for the seventh time in seven games. Recker has 13 homers on the year and a team-high 41 RBI.

Frank Martinez attempts to tag the runner coming in at third. The runner was called safe on a close play.

Pat Currin came on in the eighth inning with two-on and two-out and the hitter representing the tying run. He retired the final batter of the eighth and three of the four he faced in the ninth to earn his fifth save since joining Stockton in early May. Currin has a 1.90 ERA for the Ports.

The Raiders cheerleaders performed in between three innings during the game and signed autographs for fans.
