The Pirates went 2-1 in the Plum City Tournament. Unfortunately the loss was the first game against Ellworth 2-1. The game was 1-1 through six when the Hubbers plated a run in the 7th to take the lead and the Pirate’s weren’t able to tie the game up in the bottom. The bats still were silent but there were better swings and some unlucky happenings that kept the offense in check.
Next up were the Plum City Blues. Adam Barta started the game and threw all seven innings. He did run into one barrel in the 6th which I’ve heard still hasn’t landed. The final score was 6-4 and with Barta getting the W and battery mate Ben Krings going 3-4. Mike Lytle had a 2 run double in the 2nd to kick start the offense.
Monday we played Bay City in the consolation game. The Pirates jumped on top right away scoring consistently all game. Nick Johnson had a couple hits and 3 RBI, Jared Powell hit his first home run and Alex Ross had 2 run double. Brian Johnson also had three hits. Pirates won 10-3 and Billy Brookshaw picked up with pitching win. Unfornately Lytle hurt his shoulder pitching and will be placed on the 7 day DL. Being called up is Michael Brookshaw. j/k
