The Pirates won an 8-3 decision in the final game of Friday’s doubleheader with the Greyhounds.

Going into the final week of April, the Lady Pirates were two games back of Gaston. The Pirates are 4-8 in league now, while Gaston improved to 7-5.

Gaston opened the series with two straight wins that helped scuttle the Pirates’ plans to overtake the Greyhounds in the standings.

After traveling to Delphian Tuesday, the Pirates will host the Lady Dragons in a Friday doubleheader to wrap up the Northwest League schedule. Delphian is winless with a 0-9 record going into the final week.
