The Inland Valley Pirate’s escaped another close game Sunday night, taking home the win over the Solana Beach Redbirds 5-4.
Solana Beach got off to an early start, scoring one run in the second and another three runs in the fourth. The Pirates would then bring in their second pitcher of the night, Jake Gomez, who prevented the road team from scoring any additional runs by pitching five shutout innings.
Heading into the seventh and down 4-2, the Pirates would begin their comeback. After an RBI in the seventh from third baseman Cameron Trudel made the score 4-3, first baseman Cody Marshall recorded his second RBI of the night, this one allowing the Pirates to take the lead and secure the win.
Inland Valley now sits at 4-6 in the Sunset Baseball League and 4-8 overall.
The Pirate’s get the day off tomorrow, but will take the field next this Tuesday at Amerige Park when they play the Long Beach Legends at 7:00pm.
