Pirates trounce Ducks for sixth consecutive win


All the Pirates needed was three innings to silence the Ducks and continue its winning streak in the C2BL, now at six after cruising to a 15-0 win in Toutle Lake on Monday night.

With Adna (7-3, 3-0 C2BL) and Toledo both winning, the showdown is set for Thursday in Toledo between the last unbeatens in the league and solo first place. First pitch is slated for 4 p.m.

Four runs in the first inning then eight in the second put the game out of reach and the Pirates put the finishing touches on a run-rule triumph with three in the third. Starter Ava Simms allowed just one hit and struck out four in the circle.

Lena McCloskey went 3-for-3 at the plate with a triple and three RBIs while Alyssa Carroll roped a pair of doubles. The top two hitters in Adna’s lineup, Danika Hallom and Margarite Humphrey, each had three hits.
