Pirates Swept by Surf

The Inland Valley Pirates (12-19-1, 10-11) fell in Game 2 of Wednesday’s doubleheader against the OC Surf by a 2-1 decision.

In the bottom of the third inning, Pirates first baseman, Jake Bryant, broke a scoreless tie with an RBI single to give the Pirates a 1-0 lead.

The Surf immediately answered back in the top half of the fourth inning, putting up two runs to take a 2-1 lead.

From there, the Pirate bats went silent, as the offense mustered just one hit from that fourth inning on, and fell to a 2-1 defeat.

Pirates starter, Zack Cooper pitched well, allowing just two runs on three hits while striking out four in four innings.

Relievers, Josh Walker, Schuyler Bates and Jonathan de Marte each turned in an inning of scoreless relief out of the bullpen.

The Pirates will have to regroup quickly and ready themselves for battle in an important conference matchup against the Arroyo Seco Saints on Thursday. With a win the Pirates would clinch a playoff spot.

Game time is set for 6:00 p.m. at Scolinos Field.
