The Charlestown Pirate Baseball team (11-4 / 4-1 MSC) completed a very important step in their quest for a conference title Monday night, May 4, when traveling to MSC/County rival Silver Creek (6-10/1-4 MSC) and winning. The Pirates, committing only two errors, scored seven runs on ten hits and convincingly handed the home standing Dragons a 7-3 defeat to move within a game and a half of first place in the Mid Southern Conference baseball race.
The Pirates will host the Austin Eagles (5-1 MSC), who just dropped their first MSC game to Salem, tomorrow in a pivotal conference game.
Pirate Seniors Vest, Brady, and Metzger all contributed doubles to secure the victory, while Metzger got the win on the mound to improve his record to 3 wins and 1 loss on the season.
"A good win tonight! Cameron threw the ball very well tonight and was in command of all of his pitches. Our offense did a good job of coming to life when we needed it and our defense played pretty well. Overall, it was a real nice win," commented Coach Ricky Romans after the game.
All Pirate fans are encouraged to attend tomorrow night's home game versus Austin, 5 p.m. at the Charlestown Little League Park, and cheer Pirate baseball on their quest for their first MSC title since 1987.
