We’ve been waiting for the bats to warm up along with the weather, fortunately for the Pirates, both occurred Sunday. Chris Terrazas got the ball rolling with a 2-run HR in the first plating Billy Brookshaw. Jim French’s HR put the Pirates up 3-0 and Alex Ross’s 2-run single slid the lead to 5-0 after 3. Then the Jared Powell show started. In his last three AB’s he hit two HRs and a sac fly driving in 7. The game ended after seven innings due to the mercy rule with a final score of 15-2.
Adam Barta started the game, pitched six innings striking out 5 while allowing two earned runs. Mark Erickson threw the final scoreless frame.
The Pirates have now won four in a row improving their record to 4-3 and 2-1 in SCVBL play. They are at Blaine on Wednesday 7:30.
