Pirates break pitcher's duel in eighth against Regal

Cornbelt League League

Paynesville 7, Regal 0
Josh Williams The Paynesville Pirates broke a pitcher's duel with the Regal Eagles, scoring three runs in the eighth inning and four runs in the ninth to win 7-0 in Regal.

Through seven scoreless innings, the two teams had combined for only three hits, with the Pirates' Mike Tangen and the Eagles' Nathan Winter throwing seven shutout innings.

Tangen, making a return to Regal after switching from the Eagles to the Pirates this year, did not allow a hit in seven innings pitching, earning the victory on the hill. Leadoff hitter Aaron Deroo hit a single in the ninth inning for Regal's only hit.

Pirate catcher Josh Williams (pictured at left) hit a two-out, two-run triple to left to score the first runs of the game in the top of the eighth. Leadoff hitter Darren Michaelis followed with a bloop single to center to score the Pirates' third run.

In the ninth, the Pirates got four more hits and scored four more runs, including a two-run single by Williams. Shannon Olmscheid and Chris Soine added RBI singles.

The Pirates scored all their runs with two outs, and all of their runs were unearned, as both rallies were aided by a Regal error.

The Pirates evened their record in the Cornbelt League with the victory at 1-1. Regal dropped to 0-2.
