Error-filled effort hurts Stars in loss
What’s worse than not scoring runs? How about making six errors and falling for the second time in a row to the first-place team.
The San Rafael Pacifics played fundamental baseball — pitching, hitting and defending better — to blank the Hawaii Stars 4-0 in a Pacific Association game Thursday at San Rafael, Calif., knocking the visitors further down the four-team league standings.
Logan Odom pitched 7 2/3 scoreless innings for the win. He surrendered six hits and four walks and whiffed nine.
The Stars couldn’t shine against San Rafael’s talented arms, especially with runners in scoring position. Hawaii stranded 10 runners on base, the same number as the Pacifics.
In the fourth, the Pacifics took a 1-0 lead on Danny Gonzalez’ RBI single. Kyle Dhannani doubled to right field, went to third on a wild pitch and scored on Gonzalez’ hit to left field.
San Rafael tacked on two runs in the seventh, relying on three hits and one costly Hawaii error, one of four in the game. Prince Kendall had an RBI double, and later scored on an error.
