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.
