Pirates sail off with 12-5 win over Rovers in Men's Division

Winning the toss, the Rovers elected to field first sending the Pirates from Mt. Hagen into bat. With bases fully loaded, points were there for the taking and they got their first run after a hit by pitch ball allowed Chris Soten to run home from the third base.

Loose balls delivered by Rovers pitcher, Adneil Kouse cost his side two more points with runners going home.

Two more runners sprinted home after Robert Basse smashed one to the outfield. All of the Pirates five runs in the first inning were scored when they were two down.
