VISALIA (AP) — Ljay New­some, Austin Hutchi­son and Seth Elledge com­bined for a shutout as the Modesto Nuts topped the Visalia Rawhide 2-0 on Thurs­day.

Elledge got Drew El­lis to hit into a double play with a run­ner on first to end the game for his ninth save of the sea­son.

New­some (5-6) picked up the win af­ter he struck out four while al­low­ing three hits over five score­less in­nings. Cole Sta­pler (0-1) went six in­nings, al­low­ing two runs and four hits in the Cal­i­for­nia League game. He also struck out four and walked one.

Modesto scored its runs when Bobby Honey­man and Luis Lib­er­ato hit RBI sin­gles in the se­cond and third in­nings.

The Rawhide were blanked for the sixth time this sea­son, while the Nuts’ staff recorded their third shutout of the year.
