Sam Schoenberg contributed 2 hits and 3 rbi to the cause, and Clyde Pruett scored 4 times in a courtesy runner role.
Finishing the attack was Lacina, who scored thee times and had 2 RBI and Chester Pruett with 2 RBI.
Coach Steve Hall commented on the game.
“It was a really fun day as the boys played as relaxed and focused as I've seen this year, as well as it was sure nice to see the sunshine.”
The Pirates played a home game on Friday, going up against Cedar Park Christian for the second time this season. Despite having 6 hits, the Pirates lost 7-0 to Cedar Park. Hruska Myer went a full seven innings on the mound, giving up no earned runs. The Pirates struggled on defense, and with five errors in the field, Cedar Park was able to score its 7 runs. The Pirate offense was led by a double from Hruska Myer, then singles by Lacina, Ryan Bernheisel, Michael Bernheisel, Schoenberg and Pilgrim-Stoppel.
After the game, Hall said he saw strengths and weaknesses in the day’s play.
“Both pitchers did an incredible job,” he said. “Unfortunately for the Pirates, we had errors that cost us and then timely hitting by Cedar Park Christian was the difference in that game,” he said.
