Leghorns keep season alive

The Petaluma Leghorns American Legion team kept its summer season alive with a dominating 12-4 victory, against the Fairfield Expos.

Petaluma's bats came alive early and often with a four-run first inning and six-run second inning.

In the first inning, the top of the order started the game off hot with the first three batters scoring for Petaluma. Chase Stafford and Anthony Bender both walked and scored, while Ryan Huag singled and tallied another run. Blake Patrick reached on a fielder's choice and scored the Leghorns' fourth run.

The next inning was an even bigger run parade for Petaluma.

Petaluma scored six straight runs with its one through six hitters all crossing home plate.

Stafford, Weston Bryan and Patrick all singled and scored. Huag and RJ Busse walked and added to Petaluma's lead. Bender also scored on an error.

After scoring 10 runs in the first two innings, the Leghorns would not score again until the eighth inning.

Busse reached on an error and was knocked in on a Sam Morgan single. Ryan Walsh reached base on a fielder's choice and scored on an error for Petaluma's last run.

Dom Deville pitched the first 6 2/3 innings to get the win, while Scott Hilbert finished the game on the mound for Petaluma.
