Sonoma Academy (Santa Rosa, Calif.) had another unique twist to its streak of six consecutive no-hitters.
The streak that dates to April 7 seemingly ended when Liam Gatlin of St. Vincent de Paul (Petaluma) tripled with one out in the first inning Friday.
Sonoma trailed 9-1 after three innings but roared back to tie the game at 12-12 in the fifth inning. As darkness fell, the stadium lights would not come on. A field maintenance official was called, but by the time he arrived about 30 minutes later, the umpires had called the call.
Because the game is suspended and the result is not official, the no-hit streak is expected to carry over to Tuesday’s game against Technology (Rohnert Park, Calif.). Sonoma and St. Vincent play again in three weeks so the game could be resumed before the regularly scheduled game.
