NAPA, Calif- The Sonoma Stompers has their hopes of setting a new win streak snapped on a day to forget in Napa after being blown out 19-1.
Nick Gotta had the offense going early when he led off the game with a single and came around to score on a Rob DeAngelis RBI groundout to second to put the Stompers up 1-0 but that is all they would get offensively.
Ethan Gibbons (0-2) lasted only 1.1 innings, allowing 8 runs on 10 hits and striking out just 1. In his short outing he surrendered two homeruns, including a grand slam, knocking the right-hander out of the ballgame.
In the bottom of the 4th inning Napa scored 5 more runs, only one earned, off left-hander Luke Laurita. Napa’s runs were caused by defensive mishaps, which played a key theme for the Stompers defensively.
The Silverados tacked on two more in the 7th on a Jordan Garr 2-run homerun, capping off the win 19-1.
The Stompers will have Sunday and Monday off before returning to action on Tuesday in Vallejo, 6:35 first pitch.
