Pirates Sweep State Fair College Thanks To Dominant Pitching

Pensacola State defeated State Fair College in both games of a double header to improve their record to 4-5 on the year. The Pirates were able to get the sweep thanks to dominant pitching from Chad Bryant in Game 1 and DJ Wilkinson in Game 2. 

In game 1, the Pirates stole the lead late in a 10-1 victory. The game was tied at one with PSC batting in the bottom of the sixth when Bucky McGlamry singled on a 3-1 count, scoring Griffin Rivers from third base. The floodgates opened shortly after as the Pirates sent 15 batters to the plate resulting in a 9-run sixth inning.

Chad Bryant got the start for the Pirates and the right-hander was absolutely dominant. His blazing fastball was too much for State fair to handle. The freshman, who improved his record to 1-2, went 6 innings while giving up only 2 hits,1 run and struck out 9. JR Breeden came in and pitched a scoreless 7th. Pirates were led offensively by James Parris 1-2 with 1 run and 2RBI's and Bucky McGlamry 2-3 with 1run and 2RBI's.

In Game 2, two runs were more than enough for the Pirates as the pitching dominated once again in a 2-0 win.

DJ Wilinson got the start for the Pirates and the big right-hander kept State Fair at bay all game long. The freshman threw his first complete game in a Pirate uniform, going 7 innings only giving up 1 hit and striking out 7. 

The Pirate hitters were kept off balance thanks to State Fair's starter. The first run for PSC came on a 2 out single in the 3rd inning from Richard Sorrenti to score Malique Foreman from second base. In the 5th, the Pirates took advantage of a throwing error to score thier second run. Wilkinson took care of the rest throwing a 1-2-3 7th inning. 

The Pirates are back in action Tuesday as they travel to Central Alabama for a 1:00 game.
