Talking about a busy, but productive, week, the Sonoma Stompers concluded a six-straight-game Pacific Association of Professional Baseball League road series battling the Pittsburg Mettle and they made it a winning venture.
After splitting the first two games of the six-game set, the Stompers got back-to-back pitching gems from their two Wills, Will Krout and Will Scott, and posted a pair of victories at City Park Field No. 1 in Pittsburg.
Last Thursday evening, Krout improved his record to 3-0 by pitching his first complete game of the season, and, along with Sonoma's three, four and five batters in the order – Jayce Ray, Steve Rinaudo and Joel Carranza – who combined for seven hits, and six RBIs, earned a 6-2 triumph over the Mettle.
Krout finished his nine-inning mound performance allowing two runs, one earned, while scattering six hits, striking out three and walking one, and Carranza homered.
Also on Thursday, the Stompers made several moves, including the signing of infielder Charlie Mirabal and catcher Andrew Parker, the releasing of Kyle Jones and Thomas McAlpine, and the placing of Tommy Lyons on the seven-day inactive list.
