MOOSIC, Pa.Bryan Hoeing tossed a career-high 8.0 innings and both Jerar Encarnacion and Lorenzo Quintana homered on Tuesday for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp to shut out the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders 3-0 from PNC Field.

Hoeing (3-1) fanned seven against one walk in his outing, becoming the first Jumbo Shrimp (23-20) starter to go 8.0 innings this season. He scattered four hits before yielding to Andrew Nardi, who worked a scoreless ninth inning to seal Jacksonville’s third shutout win of the season.

With the same score in the fourth, JJ Bleday blooped a one-out single before moving to second on a walk from Nick Fortes, which exended Fortes’ on-base streak to 18 games. Charles Leblanc then laced an RBI single to bring in Bleday and make it 2-0.

The Jumbo Shrimp added to their lead when Quintana led off the fifth by blasting a home run to make it 3-0.
