STOCKTON – Sierra belted 17 hits Tuesday and put up eight runs in the second inning and eight more in the seventh to pummel host Weston Ranch 16-1 in Valley Oak League baseball action.

“We did what we needed to do,” Timberwolves coach Jack Thomson said. “I was a little disappointed in our approach at the plate after the second inning and we got shut down in innings 3 through 6.

“In the seventh inning, some other guys came in and we did a better job at the plate. It is what it is and we have to do it again Thursday.”

Jake Souza was 3 for 4 with a double and an RBI for Sierra (7-1 VOL, 15-3) and Dakota Conners (3 for 4) knocked in two runs. Kyle Oden started and threw six innings for the Timberwolves, striking out seven and walking one.

The Cougars (1-7, 3-16) got their lone run in the seventh inning when Juan Ramos doubled in Cody Simerley.

Sonora 10, Lathrop 4

In Sonora, Keenan Donatelli-Bryant and Miguel Castellanos had two hits apiece for the Spartans (2-7 VOL, 3-15), who lost their third straight game. Sonora scored in every inning but the third, highlighted by a four-run fifth inning. Lathrop scored its runs in the third and fifth innings. Richard Chavez tallied two runs, while Santiago Kantun had a double.
