With the Pirates in the midst of 9 games in 15 days, why not mix in a bachelor party. It isn’t hot enough out, why not starve your liver of water.
Friday the Pirates played in the River Rumble, the annual game in Hastings for Rivertown Days. Adam Barta squared off against Derrick Marks and they didn’t disappoint. Both threw exception but in the end, Hastings walked off on the Pirates in the bottom of the 9th inning giving them a 2-1 victory.
Saturday was a full day for the home squad. Spring Valley came to town and the bats woke up by scoring four in the first inning. They would continue to hit the ball all over the park and eventually would run rule the Hawks in the 8th. Nick Johnson started and pitched well, only giving up one run on a few hits, walking zero and striking out a handful.
Saturday night was a fun-filled evening at the Ross residence as most of the team celebrated Alex Ross’s bachelor party. I don’t know who organized the bachelor party in the midst of 4.5 games in 5 days but he should be fired.
So we come to Sunday, Plum City is in town to not only play our regularly scheduled game, but also finish of 4.2 innings from the postponement in Plum City. The Pirates finished off the first game winning 7-0 and took care of the second game 9-3. The offense kept chugging along, putting together great AB’s and squaring up a bunch of balls against the great Tony Garner. Eric Monson picked up another W in the first game and Jesse Tollefson came in relief of Monson in the second game to pick up another W as well.
Sorry for the lack of statistics and in general, really piss poor reporting. All I know is we got through the week going 3-1, the bachelor party was a success but most guys need a minor reprieve.
