The Pirates play three conference games this weekend, first starting tonight in Hager City. Jesse Tollefson takes the mound after consecutive victories over Menomonie and River Falls and is looking to push his overall record to 3-0. The Pirates are looking to break out of a funk down in Hager City as they seem to always lack focus. Personally I think it is because the bright lights of a gentleman’s club is staring them in the face but I digress.
Saturday we host Bay City at 1. The Bombers currently sit at the top of our division with a 4-0 record and they will face Rob Mouton in his Pirate’s debut. This is a big game for both teams as it could set a tone for the rest of the division. Mouton is from Woodbury and played his high school ball at Cretin Durham Hall.
Sunday St. Croix Falls comes to Prescott for a Father’s Day matinée. Nick Johnson will toe the rubber coming off 4.1 innings pitched at Plum City on Sunday that was postponed due to rain. Johnson struck out 8 of 13 batters and is looking to prove the manager wrong once again.
See you at the ballpark!
