Game 9, June 7

Pirates 2, Railroaders 0. It isn't often that a team wins a game when 16, count 'em, 16 batters strikeout, but that was the case at Riverside Park on Saturday evening, as the league-leading Tradewater Pirates used a clutch double by Logan Bawcom in the 6th inning to beat Cory White and the Fulton Railroaders, 2-0. White was simply dominant for most of the game, striking out the side several times, and keeping the Bucs at bay most of the night, as the righty mowed down Pirates, like John Deere mows down grass. But the bat of Logan Bawcom was the difference, bringing home a streaking Justin Long in the 6th, for a 1-0 lead, with the Pirates adding an insurance run, unearned, in the 8th. White and company could not overcome the combined Pirate pitching effort of George Hebert, who struck out seven, and relievers Sean Mahley and Eric "Don't" Faint, who entered during the 8th inning. The game was intense, as the Roaders looked to exact some revenge on the Pirates, from the previous night's 6-2 loss. But, in the end, resilience won out over brilliance, and the Pirates moved to 7-2 in early season action in the KIT, and a tie with Owensboro, who kept pace as well. Hebert was the winner for Tradewater. Game box scores  Click Here.

Medley handled the top of the Fulton's order for his second save in two nights. After getting the first two batters in the top of the ninth, Medley walked Cory Hodskins to put the go-ahead run at the plate in the person of clean-up hitter Louie Haseltine.
