It’s raining wins for the Pilots

It’s raining wins for the Pilots

On a wet and dreary night at War Memorial Stadium, the Peninsula Pilots looked to take on a double header against the Edenton Steamers, after a rain out two weeks ago. With the rain rolling in again today the start of the first game got pushed back from 6:05 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. As the game got underway the rain let up and was on and off through about four innings. However, in the fifth inning the game was called on a 30 minute delay, and after tarping the field and more torrential downpours, the rain looked to let up enough to get both games in, but after rolling up the tarp and trying to dry the dirt the game was called after five innings of play. The Pilots won the game 1-0 with a run scored by Tyler Adams. Since there were five out of seven innings of the first game played it has been declared a complete game. The second game will be made up in another double header on June 28 at War Memorial Stadium.

 

The Pilots will look to complete a full nine innings tomorrow as they take on the Martinsville Mustangs on the road. First pitch is at 7:05 p.m.
