Wildcat offense explodes in season finale

By Alex MacLean / The Union Democrat

The Sonora Wildcats pounded out 12 hits and defeated the Weston Ranch Cougars 16-9 on Tuesday in Stockton in the season finale for both teams.

Kyle Wolfe and Ryan Stevenson each had three hits to lead the attack. Wolfe had a pair of doubles and drove in two runs and Stevenson had a double and scored three times.

Sonora scored a run in the first and then plated eight in the second inning to take a 9-1 lead.

The Cougars rallied for five in the second but the Cats scored two in the third and three more in the fifth to pull away.

"We started strong and we hit the ball real well," said Wildcat head coach Scott Johnson. "We got a lot of production from up-and-down the lineup. We stole eight bases and kept the pressure on their defense."

Also for Sonora (4-10 Valley Oak League), Tyler Helm was 2 for 3 with two runs scored and two RBIs, Carter Denton scored three runs, Justin Payne was 1 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs scored and Ryan Dills was 1 for 2 with an RBI and run.

"Weston Ranch was aggressive at home and came out swinging," Johnson said. "But it was to end our season with a win. I thought we could've done better, but 12-13 with all the young kids we had, it's not so bad. I'm gonna miss our seniors, but I think we've got a good nucleus going into next year. We need to work hard and improve in everything this offseason."
