LAKE ELSINORE - On one of the few days where there was actually a chance of a rainout the Storm were shutout by the Oakland A’s affiliate the Stockton Ports, owners of the best record in the Cal League.
Sidewinder Adam Cimber
, who made his first start of the year, came into the game with a 2.75 ERA in 68.2 innings all in relief. The former University of San Francisco Don gave the Storm two and two-thirds innings in a spot start before allowing a third inning two out two-run home run to first baseman Matt Olson
, who leads the league with 36.
All in all it was a dismal night for Lake Elsinore as they were held to only four hits, with Mallex Smith’s triple being the lone extra-base hit. Throw in three errors in the field, right fielder Luis Domoromo striking out four times in four at-bats for the “golden sombrero” and its better to think about tomorrow.
