O’Connor Lumber & Hardware is proud to present this Pressure Treated Moment. One of the best wins of the year for the Admirals came on August 1 at San Rafael. Vallejo was in the midst of a stretch where it won 14 out of 16 games. Some came easy. Others were like this one.
The Admirals fell behind 5-3, came back to take a 6-5 lead only to see the Pacifics tie it up. In the 10th inning, Vallejo scored two runs and had the bases loaded when Chris Fornaci stepped to the plate.
Fornaci had been one of the team’s biggest power threats in 2018, hitting 17 home runs. But a broken hand suffered early in the year appeared to have cost him his power. He had no home runs as he stepped into the box to face San Rafael’s Kyle Ulanday.
Fornaci’s grand slam proved to be the difference in the game as the Pacifics rallied for four runs in the bottom of the inning. The Admirals emerged with a 12-10 win thanks to Fornaci’s Pressure Treated Moment.
