The San Jose Barracuda picked up a 4-0 win on Tuesday afternoon against the San Antonio Rampage. The win is the Barracuda’s second in a row and their third in four games as San Jose wraps up its three-game Texas swing.

Timo Meier scored his second goal and picked up his third assist and the ‘Cuda (5-3-0-1) added a pair of empty net goals to put the Rampage (6-9-0-0) to bed. Marcus Sorensen scored twice, once on the empty net, while Rourke Chartier netted his fifth goal of the season.

Sorensen led the team with four shots on goal to go with his three points while both Mirco Mueller and Joakim Ryan put three pucks on net. Meier had two shots on goal. He now has goals in back-to-back games after starting his professional career on a five-game goal drought.

Grosenick made 27 saves in the effort — his second shutout of the season. The netminder holds a .905 save percentage so far this season, just a tick above the .902 he has in his career. His two shutouts match the most he has had in a single AHL season.

The win keeps the Barracuda in the top three of the Pacific while the Rampage languish in the basement of the division. San Jose sits .020 point percentage points (catchy) above the Ontario Reign.

San Jose returns to California for three more road games, two in San Diego and one in Bakersfield, before heading back to SAP Center to host the Condors on Nov. 25. The Barracuda play at San Diego on Friday.
