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.

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.
