Utah Pirates 8, Santa Rosa Cardinals 2
Submitted by Randy Miles, Pirates manager
We scored seven runs in the first two innings. Calvin Thomas pitched all nine innings for us, scattering 10 hits, with no walks, one HBP, and six strikeouts. He was our MVP for the tourney and the championship game. Brad Hill went 3-4 with two doubles, Calvin was 2-4, Clint Romero was 2-4, and Tom Campos and Brett Blackburn were both 2-3.
Neil Warner won our Playoff game vs NSEW 12-3, and gave up only one earned run on seven hits, two walks and six strikeouts. He pitched great for us throwing two complete games (14 innings) for the tournament and only giving up five runs.
It was a great tourney for us with every game being very competitive, and the shortened games really worked out in our favor since we only brought four pitchers and 14 players total.
