Pirates Notch Legendary Win

The Inland Valley Pirates (9-9-1) defeated the Long Beach Legends at Scolinos Field on Tuesday by a score of 5-2.

Six Pirates pitchers combined to give up just two runs on four hits as the offense capitalized on four Legend errors.

Long Beach jumped on the board early with a run in the first inning on an RBI single.

The Pirates answered back in the second inning, when Nick Hernandez scored on a fielding error, tying the game at 1.

In the bottom of the third, with two on and two out, Johnny Reynoso singled to drive in a run and give the Pirates a 2-1 lead.

The Legends managed to tie the game at 2 with a run in the top half of the seventh. However, it would be short-lived as in the bottom of the seventh, late game insert, Chaneng Varela, singled to drive in the go-ahead run and give the Pirates a 3-2 lead.

Two batters later, the Pirates plated an insurance run on a sacrifice fly by outfielder, Sergio Robles.

Two batters later the Pirates scored their third run of the inning, when a double steal attempt forced an errant throw from the catcher, allowing the runner at third to score.

The Pirates held the Legends scoreless from there and walked away with the 5-2 victory.

The Pirates used six different pitchers to hold the Legends to just two runs and four hits.

Nicholas Sergi is credited with the win in relief, giving up just one unearned run and striking out one batter in his lone inning.

Justin Gomez continued his hot hitting, as he went 2-for-3 with a run scored and reached base in all three of his plate appearances.

The Pirates will look to continue their winning ways on Wednesday as they play a doubleheader against Team San Diego at Scolinos Field. The first takes place at 1 p.m.
