The game against Charles Wright on Wednesday was canceled due to rain. On Friday the Pirates played host to Seattle Christian in a Nisqually League game. The Pirates came up on the losing end of an 8-3 game. Errors were the downfall of the Pirates as they committed 5 errors to 1 by Seattle Christian. The Pirates gave up 2 runs in the second inning and 1 in the 3rd inning, then fought their way back to a 3-4 deficit at the end of 6 innings. The 7th inning was not kind to the Pirates as Seattle Christian score 4 runs and the Pirates came up empty.

Ary Dulfer start off pitching for the Pirates going 3 innings. He gave up 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits with 6 strike outs and 2 walks. Wyatt Yates took over in the 4th inning pitching 4 innings. He gave up 5 runs (2 earned) on 3 hits, striking out 7 and walking 2 batters. Both teams recorded 13 strike outs as hits were hard to come by.

The Pirates could only manage 3 hits against Seattle Christian with Alex Hitchcock leading the way with a double. Levi Myer and Ary Dulfer each contributed singles. Aidan McCann had 2 RBI’s and Andrew McCamment had 1 for the Pirates.

The Pirates play a make up game Monday at Charles Wright and on Thursday they are at home against Cascade Christian. On Friday they play a non-league game at University Place. For the year, the Pirates record is 5-4 and they are in 3rd place at 1-3 in the Nisqually league.
