Pirates Walkoff for 2nd Straight Game

On Friday, at Scolinos Field, The Inland Valley Pirates out-dueled the Solana Beach Cardinals for a hard-fought 3-2 victory.

Clutch, late inning heroics helped to back a stellar pitching performance from starter, Kyle Wade.

The Pirates jumped out to an early 1-0 lead as Alec Petrone came home on an RBI single by Jonathan de Marte. With runners on first and third, Alberto Vargas scampered home on the stolen base attempt by de Marte, pushing the Pirate lead to 2-0.

The Cardinals scored a run in the top half of the second inning to cut the lead in half.

From that point on, both pitchers managed to hold the opposition silent.

The epic pitcher’s duel reached its climax in the ninth inning,when a two-out RBI single in the top half of the inning tied the score at two.

In the bottom half of the ninth, after Alec Petrone led off with a double, catcher, Landon Marshall singled up the middle to drive him home and give the Pirates their second consecutive walk-off victory by a final tally of 3-2.

Despite being credited with a no decision in the contest, Pirates starter, Kyle Wade turned in a spectacular seven inning performance, allowing just one run on five hits, while striking out four and walking just one.

The victory pushed the Pirates to 6-2 in conference play and gave them 0.5 game lead in the South standings.

The Pirates will meet the Cardinals in doubleheader action Saturday at Torrey Pines High School. First game begins at 12:00 PM.
