Fabiaschi Makes a Splash in Season Debut with Stockton
Now that's how you get their attention!
Torrington native Michael Fabiaschi got off to a rocking start in his first game as a member of the Stockton Port in the California League on Saturday night.
Stockton beat Bakersfield by a 7-3 score for their third straight win to start the 2013 campaign.
The former Raider star blasted a two-run homer in his second at bat of the night after cuttting off a rally in the top of the frame by gunning down a runner at the plate.
Fabiaschi connected off a Jonathan Moscot, a top prospect in the Blaze organization to give his team the lead for good at 4-3.
In the bottom of the sixth, Fabiaschi continued to make a statement with a leadoff double and scored his second run on a two out double by Bobby Crocker.
To top things off, Fabiaschi reached in the eighth after being hit by a pitch, a true sign of respect and scored his third run later in the inning.
Fresh off a winter in which he worked hard to get himself ready to make an imact, Fabiaschi could not have asked for a better start.
Having found a home fast was a good sign for the former Twister and James Madison University graduate who was assigned right after spring training by the Oakland Athletics farm
