VALLEJO, Calif. — Skylar Janisse threw a five-hit shutout as the Vallejo Admirals won their 11th game in their last 13, beating the San Rafael Pacifics 6-0 on Wednesday night at Wilson Park.
Janisse 2-1 hurled the first complete game of the season for Vallejo. He struck out eight and didn’t walk a batter. It was his first professional shutout. Vallejo now has three team shutouts on the season.

But the story was Janisse. He retired the first seven hitters he faced before Jimmy Lunardelli singled in the third. Markus Montelongo had two hits for San Rafael. The top four hitters in the Pacifics lineup went 0-for-16 with four strikeouts.
Marshall went 2-for-3 with a walk and scored three runs for Vallejo. Gomez and Eureste also had two hits for the Admirals.
