Diego Goris had four hits and Hunter Renfroe mashed a 483-foot home run Tuesday night, but the Storm faltered in a 7-2 defeat at the hands of the Lancaster JetHawks that ended their 10-game home win streak.

Lancaster got to Storm starter Zach Eflin (L, 4-2) early, scoring single runs in the first and second. A three-run ‘Hawks fourth gave them a 5-0 advantage and effectively ended the right hander’s night. The four inning outing was the shortest of the season for Eflin.

The Storm avoided being shutout for the first time this year thanks to Renfroe’s blast in the bottom of the fourth. The Mississippi State alum drilled a no-doubter to left field that scored Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin, who had reached on a walk in the previous at-bat.

With their lead cut to three, the JetHawks responded with two more runs in the sixth to put the game out of reach. Adam Cimber and Cody Hebner performed admirably in the later innings, keeping Lancaster off the board with a combined three innings of shutout pitching.

Despite the loss, the Storm (20-13) remain atop the South standings while Lancaster (19-14) move within one game of the top spot. Lake Elsinore is 17-6 in the last 23 games, compared to an 11-12 mark for Lancaster in that span.

Chase Headley appeared in his second consecutive game for the Storm. The third baseman went 1-3 with two strikeouts.

Renfroe’s dinger was his seventh of the season, ranking him third in the league, and improved his season RBI total to 27. The 22-year old has recorded a hit in ten of his last eleven games. Goris’ four-hit night raised his season average to a team-leading .324.

Colin Rea (3-0, 3.86 ERA) will try and lead the Storm back to the win column tomorrow while Brian Holmes (0-0, 0.00 ERA) will go for the JetHawks. First pitch is slated for 6:05pm
