Pirates Can’t Finish Cards

The Inland Valley Pirates (13-21-1, 11-13) fell to the Solana Beach Cardinals in Game 2 of the doubleheader 6-5 after squandering a 5-4 lead in the final inning.

The game was a back-and-forth affair. The Cardinals scored once in the second and twice more in the fourth to grab a 3-0 lead.

The Pirates answered with four in the bottom of the fourth to take a 4-3 lead. Brennan McKenzie ripped in one RBI. Koby Glass had the two-run tying base hit. Zack Cooper had the go-ahead RBI groundout.

The Cardinals responded with the tying run in the fifth.

Inland Valley regained the lead in the sixth at 5-4 as Aaron Torres scored.

Unfortunately, the Pirates couldn’t hold on as the save was blown.

Luckily for the Pirates, the Saints fell later Friday night meaning Inland Valley had clinched the fourth and final playoff spot in the Sunset Baseball League.

The Pirates play next on Sunday at 7 p.m. at Cal Poly Pomona against the OC Surf.
