For the second time this spring, the Sonoma Stompers dropped an exhibition matchup with the defending champion San Rafael Pacifics, as Sonoma lost 3-0 on Monday at Peterson Field.

As the score would indicate, the Stomper hitters were having a tough time figuring out San Rafael's pitching staff, which featured a lot of returning players such as JR Bunda. While the offense was scarce, there were some bright spots, as rookie Ethan Szabo went 2-for-2.

The Stompers also got good performances on the hill from Jose Flores, Eric Mozeika, Austin Delmotte, and Martin Cronin while Derrick Fox made some great defensive plays at the keystone. 

Today's game was the first of three games this week where the Stompers face off against the Pacifics, as the two teams will return on Tuesday for another exhibition matchup. First pitch is scheduled for 11 a.m. at Peterson Field in Sonoma.

The Stompers will begin the 2016 campaign on May 31st when they hit the road to open the Pacific Association League season against the Vallejo Admirals in a three game series. The Stompers will open the home slate at Arnold Field on Tuesday June 7th also against the Vallejo Admirals in a three game set.
