NAPA, Calif. While they came back in the ninth Saturday night, the Sonoma Stompers’ offense could not pick up Sunday afternoon as they only managed four hits and fell to the Napa Silverados 3-0.

Tyler Sharp delivered another solid start, allowing just two earned runs over 5.2 innings with eight strikeouts.

Ryan Richardson and Cole Watts combined for 2.1 innings of scoreless relief after Sharp, doing their best to keep the team in the game.

Sonoma only managed four hits in the game, all singles. Rob DeAngelis singled in the first and both Brock Hartley and Eddie Mora-Loera singled in the second, but the offense was unable to find a way onto the scoreboard at any point, despite drawing eight walks.

Rayson Romero tried to start a rally with a one-out single in the ninth, but the rally was for not and the Stompers fell, shutout for the second time in 2018.

The team wraps up the current road trip with two games in Vallejo, 6:35 p.m. starts Tuesday and Wednesday.
