Pirates frustrated by Bertha

Email News Alerts

A Bertha six-run seventh inning sunk the Pirates Friday night.

Johnnie Schmitz was in command of the Blazer batters for six solid innings and held a 6-3 advantage before five base raps and two walks led to a late Bertha rally. The Blazers led 9-6 after the stretch and added an insurance run in the ninth for the 10-6 win.


The Pirates gave Schmitz an early cushion in the fourth, plating four consecutive batters, Josh Hendrickx, Beau Bruhn, Schmitz and Taylor Doll.
