The Pirates traveled to Osceola on Friday and scored two runs in the first inning on Jim French’s two out, two run double. There wasn’t much offense after that on both sides as Osceola’s starter settled down and Pirate starter Adam Barta was on his game. Unfortunately for the Pirates, another storm rolled through Osceola and the game was postponed in the bottom of the 5th, three outs shy of a win. This is the second time this season we’ve had games postponed in the bottom of the 5th, the other was in Plum City.
Saturday we traveled to Hayward to face the Hawks, a rematch of last years regional final in which the Pirates won. The offense was on top of their game as we won 8-2 in a 7 inning affair. Nick Johnson and Chris Terrazas combined for 5 hits and Johnson picked up the Win throwing 5 innings, giving up two runs in the 5th. Jake Kuschke pitched two shutout innings in relief to close down the win.
Pirates face Ellsworth in a big game on Wednesday. On the mound will be Rob Mouton.
