Pirates climb to second following mercy victory!

Despite the absence of Captain Chris, Josie and Nadine the Pirates were able to put together an impressive display to smash the Tigers 23-0 at the end of the 5th innings. We were able to welcome back Bola after 4 weeks following his injury at the first tournament of the season and also Miya from the Parrots was able to play up a division as we were a few girls short (for a change).

It’s fair to say that the Tigers were more of a recreational work team but they did have some decent fielders and an excellent short stop as Alice found out when he made a great diving catch off her line line. Batting wise just about everyone hit over 0.60 during the game with Shaz riding high on 1000 (2 hits, 2 walks) and Sohan, Shorty and Lucy on 0.8. Unlike our performance against the Heat our fielding was also much more cohesive and organised as shown by a complete shut out! Let’s hope we can keep this up against the Cubs!

MVP: Lucy (4 runs, 2 RBIs, 0.8)

Defensive award: Gids (shut out and amazing throw to first)
