Fulton Eagles 2 @ Owensboro Pirates 3
Location: Southside Park (Owensboro, KY)
Owensboro Wins in 9th
With two out in the last of the ninth, the Owensboro Pirates staged a two run uprising to pluck the Fulton Eagles, 3-2, at Southside Park here today.
The Eagles went into the ninth leading 2-1 but with one out, pinch hitter Dantic drew a base on balls and went to second on a sacrifice buny by Henry. Pitcher Sweetland based a hard single to left scoring Dantic and after Clemens was also walked, Veazey, who was released by Fulton this week, lifted a double off the left field wall.
The Buccaneers tallied in the third on successive doubles by Veazey and Wise. The Eagles scored their two tallies in the sixth on two Pirate errors and singles by Hahn, Wilson and Clonts. Sunday the Pirates journey to Paducah to tackle Ben Tincup’s Indians there.
