Stretch tallied his 19th goal of the season and first goal since his return from the AHL with a precision shot from the left circle at 13:50.
Kevin Estrada capitalized on a broken play in Bakersfield's end to establish an 4-0 for Ontario at 4:13 of the third period as he went backhand to forehand to beat Pitton. Parker Stanfield broke the shutout for the Condors with a goal at 8:02 before Geoff Irwin added his ninth goal of the season at 13:58 on the way to Ontario's 5-1 win.
Jean-Francois Berube (6-8-1) stopped 28 of the 29 shots he faced in the win, while Pitton (4-16-2) took the loss with 26 saves on 31 shots. Neither Chris Carrozzi nor Matt Kettley faced any shots in relief.
