Baseball season closes with one win, one loss
The Pirate baseball team ended its season last week with a win, a loss and a final record of 4-11.
League play ended on May 7 at Life Christian with the Pirates earning a 1-0 victory.
Freshman Josh Myer started on the hill for the Pirates and pitched a complete game shutout. He allowed only three hits and two walks and recorded seven strikeouts. Although Myer pitched a beauty of a game, the opposing pitcher threw a good game as well. Thus the contest entered the sixth inning knotted at zero when the Pirates were finally able to break through. Ezra Lacina singled, and Erik Powelson doubled him home to score the only run of the game and the only run Myer needed. The remainder of the Pirate offense was four singles contributed by Ben Reoux, Joe Wald, Kelly Sullivan and Rowan Stewart. Vashon finishes the season with a league record of 4-8.
Line score: Vashon 1 run, 6 hits, 3 errors; Life Christian 0 runs, 3 hits, 2 errors.
In the final game of the season, Vashon hosted the Eagles of Life Christian on May 8. The Eagles came away with a 6-4 victory.
Erik Powelson started on the mound for the Pirates and pitched all eight innings of the game. He surrendered seven hits and three walks, resulting in five earned runs. The game was tied at three through five innings. However, Life Christian put up a run in the sixth and two in the eighth to secure the win. Vashon had plenty of scoring opportunities due to 10 base on balls, but they were only able to generate the four runs.
The game saw a multitude of extra base hits. The Pirates had two triples (Ben Reoux and Powelson) and a double (Ezra Lacina) and three of the Eagles’ seven hits went for doubles. Rounding out the Vashon offense with singles were Joe Wald, Josh Myer and Rowan Stewart.
The Pirates finished the season with an overall record of 4-11.
Line score: Life Christian 6 runs, 7 hits, 1 error; Vashon 4 runs, 6 hits, 1 error.
