VALLEJO, Calif. – After topping the Vallejo Admirals late Tuesday night, the Sonoma Stompers continued to roll Wednesday night, sweeping the series and winning 8-3.

Once again, the scoring began early as Daniel Comstock crushed a two-run home run in the first inning to give Sonoma a 2-0 lead. After Vallejo tied the game up in the bottom half, Daniel Baptista broke the tie in the third inning with a three-run homer of his own to bring the lead to 5-2.

A solo home run from Kenny Meimerstorf in the fifth and two more runs in the sixth gave the Stompers eight runs in the game and a comfortable lead for the remainder of the evening.

“I worked on a couple of things during BP and tried to translate it to the game,” Meimerstorf said. “I have a plan every time I come into the box and I try to execute that plan and I don’t waver from it.”

Ethan Gibbons started for the Stompers and threw six strong innings, striking out five Admiral hitters to pick up his third straight win.

Ryan Richardson made his return to Sonoma after playing overseas in Japan, pitching a 1-2-3 eighth inning with two strikeouts.
