Stompers denied 2nd straight series win

Shaking off the recent sputtering that cost them in the victory column, the Sonoma Stompers tuned up their play, put it in gear, and cruised to a road series-clinching win.

Unfortunately, Sonoma couldn't sustain its drive over the weekend and had to settle for a two-series split.

The Stompers took last Thursday’s three-game series rubber match in San Rafael, then traveled to Pittsburg, where they dropped two-of-three and find themselves parked at second place in the Pacific Association of Professional Baseball League second-half standings.

In last Thursday’s three-game-series decider at Wilson Park in San Rafael, Sonoma rode the hot-hitting of Matt Hibbert and Jayce Ray to a one-sided 9-3 triumph over the Pacifics, who, after winning the first half, are trying to win the outright PAPB title by claiming the second-half crown.

Leading the Stompers were Hibbert’s three-for-five with a double and RBI; and Ray’s two-for-three, including his seventh home run to go with three runs scored and two RBIs.
