POTH -- While the Poth Pirette softball team was busy working on its 15-1 win over the Lady Mustangs of Nixon-Smiley, the Pirate baseball team was working on a victory of its own. The Pirates took every advantage Nixon-Smiley afforded them, and Poth eventually turned out the lights with an 8-4 win last Friday evening.

The Mustangs put runners on base to start the game, but pitcher Zach Lyssy and the Pirate defense retired the side before Nixon-Smiley could score.

Like the Mustangs, the Pirates also put runners on the base path right away. The big difference, however, was that Poth drove in 2 runs before pitcher Nick Pena and the Mustang defense could shut it down.

Nixon-Smiley came back in the top of the second inning to score 1 run, but the Pirates got it back in the bottom of the third. The Mustangs were held back in the top of the fourth, and the score was 3-1 at the game’s midway point. But that was the closest Nixon-Smiley would ever get.

The Pirates got a great rally going in the bottom of the fourth inning, and brought 5 white uniforms across home plate, putting the Mustangs in a big hole at 8-1. Neither team scored in the fifth or sixth inning, but things got interesting in the seventh.

Needing 7 runs in one inning is a lot to ask, but the Mustangs stepped up to the plate and took their cuts. Nixon-Smiley managed to scratch 3 runs in the top of the inning, but couldn’t do the improbable, and the Pirates celebrated an 8-4 victory.

Lyssy made a great showing on the hill for Poth, fanning seven batters through seven innings of work. Lyssy also had a great night at the plate, going two for four with two hits, including a double and an RBI. He also stole three bags.

Also helping at the plate were Kyler Felux, Dillon Zaiontz, Matt Cantu, and Thomas Krawietz, as each picked up RBIs. Krawietz had two stolen bases, and Blake Lyssy and Kyle Clements nabbed bags as well.

Working out of the other dugout, Raul Tovar had a good night for Nixon-Smiley, as he went three for four, including a double and an RBI. Jared Van Auken had a double and 2 RBIs for the Mustangs, and Logan McMain drove in Nixon-Smiley’s other run. Nick Pena had a rough going on the mound, striking out three, while giving up two walks, five hits, and 4 earned runs.
