WHEELERSBURG — The Pirates were not very welcoming hosts in Monday’s baseball game against Jackson, scoring in each of the first four innings en route to a 10-3 win over the Ironmen.
Jackson dropped the non-league contest, their first game in five days. The team’s Frontier Athletic Conference game against Washington Court House on April 26 was postponed due to inclement weather and will be made-up on May 6.
Drew Bragg took the loss for Jackson, giving up six runs (two earned) in three innings pitched. He struck out one and walked four. Logan Massie pitched three innings of relief, giving up just one earned run on five hits, walking one.
Jackson’s three runs scored all came in the fifth, when the team entered the frame down 7-0.
With the bases loaded, Ty Broermann singled to right field to drive in his team’s first run. Ty Ruckel’s RBI groundout added another run and a third run was plated on a Pirate error.
Jackson fell to 11-11 overall.
