SONOMA, Calif. – Now winners of 17 of their last 21 games, the Sonoma Stompers walked off on the Pittsburg Diamonds Saturday night for their fourth straight win, a 4-3 final.
While the Diamonds struck first, the Stompers countered by jumping out to an early 3-1 lead. Mitchell Ho hit his seventh home run of the season and Miles Williams scored after a Daniel Comstock single in the third and Ho added another run with a single in the fourth.
Ho went 4-5 in the game with three singles, a home run and two RBI.
“I had a little change of approach, attacking more,” Ho said. “I’ve been a little too passive lately and I decided to come out swinging.”
Kam Stewart also had three singles in the game and the Stompers finished with 12 hits on the day.
Pittsburg tied the game at three in the seventh off Vijay Patel, who pitched 6.1 innings with four hits and three runs allowed, along with six strikeouts.
The Stompers loaded the bases with one out in the 10th inning and a single from Marcus Bradley, his first hit of the game, scored Kam Stewart to win the game 4-3.
“I got ahead of the count, he threw two balls so I was looking for something that I could hit at that point,” Bradley said. “I knew that even if I did hit it somewhere, they weren’t going to turn the double play so I just needed to put the ball in play.”
The Stompers return to action Sunday against the Diamonds with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 p.m.
