On the mound, Pirates pitching was highlighted by solids starts from Peyton Seiz and Brandon Whitehead. "Our pitching seems to be buying in to our philosophy of throwing strikes and letting the defense play behind them. Especially on games three and four, it worked to our advantage. We just weren't able to come up with enough offense to secure the wins," commented Coach Suttenfield.
Next action for the Pirates will be a four-game home series against North Arkansas College. These are set to be the first games played by the Pirates at their home field this season.
