Diamonds Bats Fail Stirewalt, Admirals Win 4-2
Diamonds starter Tyler Stirewalt gave up only three runs in seven innings pitched, but a combination of five Vallejo pitchers held Pittsburg to just two runs and the Admirals won 4-2.
Vallejo shortstop David Kiriakos continued to feast on Pittsburg pitching – he has seven hits in 10 plate appearances in this series – as the Admirals opened up a 4-0 lead in three innings and then held on.
Mahlik Jones gave up one run in five innings pitched and got the victory. Sammy Gervasio pitched a scoreless night and got his eighth save. Stirewalt took the loss.
The rubber match of the three-game series will be Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Winter Chevrolet Stadium.
