McGee's homer highlighted a five-run fourth inning for High Desert (11-10), which swept the three-game set and extended Bakersfield's losing streak to five. McGee also drew four bases on balls.

Marquez Smith hit his second homer in two nights for Bakersfield, which also got a solo shot from Kyle Waldrop.

Juan Silverio extended his hitting streak to 11 games for the Blaze. With a single and double, he was the only Bakersfield player with multiple hits.

The Blaze turned four double plays and committed one error.

Losing pitcher Tanner Robles (0-4) allowed four earned runs on seven hits in four innings.

Bakersfield (5-16) begins a three-game home series at 7:15 tonight against the Visalia Rawhide at Sam Lynn Ball Park.
