Diamonds Batters Succumb Again to Admirals Pitching, Vallejo Wins 6-4

            Pittsburg continued its run of anemic offensive performances, producing just four hits on the way to a 6-4 loss to Vallejo.

            Tillman Pugh, Mike Blanke and Shawn Payne hit home runs and David Kiriakos went 3 for 4 and scored a run to lead the Admirals’ assault.

            Michael Gunn (4-2) went six innings, giving up five runs and took the loss. Vallejo starter David Dinelli (2-5) got the win and Sammy Gervacio pitched the ninth to earn his 11th save.


            The two teams will play their final game of the series Sunday at 1 p.m. at Winter Chevrolet Stadium.
