SONOMA, Calif- The Sonoma Stompers were unable to stay unbeaten at home this season against the Napa Silverados after the 7-2 loss on Thursday night.
Konner Arnold (4-3) is still trying to pick up where he left off after winning Pitcher of the Month in June. High pitch count led to an early exit for Arnold in Thursday’s game.
Napa took the lead in the top of he 3rd inning when they collected back-to-back singles by Salas and Conners and then back-to-back doubled by Montelongo and Garr to go out to an early 3-0 lead.
The Silverados added on in the top of the 5th inning scoring 4 more runs on just one hit, aided by walks.
Arnold was knocked out after 4 1/3 innings. He allowed 5 runs on 5 hits while striking out 7.
Barnett was flawless, allowing just 1 hit over the last 4 2/3 innings.
The Stompers scored twice in the bottom of the 6th inning. Dondrei Hubbard and Rob DeAngelis hit back-to-back singles to open the inning. Chris Kwitzer and Pedro Barrios then both collected RBI groundouts to make the score 7-2, and it did not change.
The Stompers dropped Thursday night’s contest and are now 25-9 on the season. The Stompers are on the road Friday night in Vallejo and in Napa for a day game on Saturday. The Stompers are back home Sunday afternoon at 1:05 for Military Appreciation Day.
