The Pirates had a good first at-bat versus the Lakers and carried that momentum to a 17-7 South East Saskatchewan Baseball League victory, although not without a bump along the way.

The Pirates may have scored six in the home half of the first, but the Lakers took them right back scoring a half dozen runs in the top of the second.

From then on, the Pirates did settle down, said coach Brad Haberman.

In particular starting pitcher Jeremy Johnson settled into the game.

“Jeremy pitched a really good game,” said Haberman, noting even in the six-run second, three of those runs were unearned coming off an infield miscue behind the Pirates starting pitcher.

In fact, Johnson settled in so-well he ended up going the seven-inning distance, tossing around 110 pitches, said his coach, adding they had planned to relieve him in the seventh but he opted to finish the game with a healthy lead to work with.

Offensively things were obviously working for the Parkland squad.

“We were hitting well,” said Haberman. “... Everyone was chipping in offensively. I don’t think anyone didn’t get a hit.”

The win leaves the Pirates tied for third in the nine team loop with the Langenburg Legends, both with nine points. The Canora Supers lead the league with 14, with Roblin second with 10.
