Pirates Win Second in a Row

Pirates Win Second in a Row

Samantha Carvajal (Ceres HS) set the tone quick and hit the first pitch up the middle and the Pirates never looked back.  On a day that saw Carvajal go 3-3, the Pirates backed their previous weekend win over Sac City and secured a nice 3-1 victory.  Lillian Dillard (Ripon HS) went the distance in the circle, allowing 6 hits on the day and only allowing one run to cross the plate in the 4th inning.  She induce 12 Fly-outs and 8 ground balls and struck out one. Marina Figueroa (Modesto HS) went 2-2 driving in 2 runs in the first inning.  The Pirates improve their league record to 2-4 and overall record to 6-8.  "I think the Sac City series opened their eyes to what they are capable of, said Donaldson.  We have traveled a lot in the first part of the season and we scheduled some pretty good teams out of conference.  We are all learning how to play on the field with each other."  Next games are set for Friday 12pm/2pm vs Hartnell College (non conference) then Saturday vs 1st place Sierra College 12pm/2pm.  Both double headers are home games.
