Vallejo eventually closed to 4-3, after scoring two in the third and one in the fourth. P.J. Phillips had an RBI single amd Darian Sandford had a single and scored on a wild pitch in the third. Sandford had a sacrifice fly to knock in Lydell Moseby in the fourth but Sonoma extended its lead with one in the fourth and two more in the fifth.
Vallejo scored one more in the sixth as Tim Williams’ RBI single knocked in Sandford. The Admirals scored two in the seventh as Phillips scored on a wild pitch and Moseby had an RBI single.
The Admirals scored their final run in the ninth on Wilfredo Petit’s solo homer.
Petit was 3-for-5 while Williams, Moseby, Raul Navarro and Sandford all had two hits. Sandford stole two bases and has 14 on the season.
