LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) -- Luis Castro hit two home runs and drove in five runs, as the Lancaster JetHawks defeated the Inland Empire 66ers 13-6 on Wednesday.

The home runs by Castro, both two-run shots, came in the first and fourth innings off Michael Santos. Luke Morgan was a home run short of the cycle, scoring three runs and driving home a couple in the win.

Lancaster starter Lucas Gilbreath (3-4) picked up the win despite allowing five runs over five innings. Opposing starter Santos (1-2) took the loss in the California League game after a rough outing in which he allowed 10 runs and 12 hits over four innings.

In the losing effort, the 66ers hit a season-high four home runs. Michael Stefanic homered twice and singled, scoring a pair of runs while also driving home a couple for the 66ers.

With the win, Lancaster improved to 5-2 against Inland Empire this season.
