Last week, the Pirate Baseball team had their first game cancellation this season due to weather. It has been a great year for playing baseball so far.

The Pirates split two games they played against Nisqually League leading and undefeated Bellevue Christian. The Pirates record stands at 5-3 for the year. The first game on Wednesday against Bellevue Christian saw the Pirates lose 16-6 at Bellevue.

Armando Oatman started on the mound for the Pirates, going two innings and giving up 11 runs with 6 earned. He gave up 5 hits and walked 6, striking out 1. Isaac Patchen relieved for 2 innings, giving up 5 earned runs on 3 hits while walking 5 batters. The Pirates committed 6 errors playing on the artificial turf. The Pirates managed 6 hits for the day with the big blow being a 3 run home run by Ary Dulfer. Armando Oatman had a double driving in 3 runs. Aidan McCann and Levi Myer let the hit attack for the Pirates with 2 singles each.

On Thursday, Bellevue Christian visited the Pirates and would suffer their first loss of the season 2-0. Levi Myer went all 7 innings for the Pirates while shutting out Bellevue Christian. The line was no runs on 5 hits, striking out 5 and walking 1 batter. The Pirates committed only 2 errors on their home field. Both errors came in the first two innings of the game, then the Pirates settled down and played error free ball for the final 5 innings.

Ary Dulfer was the hitting star in this one, going 3-3 at the plate. Collecting one hit each was Andreas Stark, Armando Oatman and Isaac Patchen.

The Pirates scored their two runs in the firsts inning on hits by Andreas Stark, Ary Dulfer and walks issued to Levi Myer and Aiden McCann. On first, Andreas stole second and was out trying to score on Ary’s single. Levi and Aiden walked loading the bases. Ary scored on a pass ball moving the runners to second and third. Tyler Lowe was in running for Levi and scored on a balk by the pitcher. After this inning it became a pitcher’s dual, which the Pirates came out on top.

The Pirates have 2 games this week. They travel to Charles Wright on Wednesday and are at home against Seattle Christian on Friday.
