Game Summary: 

Pirates 2-5-0
Dodgers 6-10-3

Dustin Suiter and Chris Loperfido engaged in pitching dual early, with each scattering four hits over the first five innings. Suiter singled and stole second in the second inning, scoring on a fielders choice to give the Pirates a 1-0 that lasted until the sixth inning. In the fifth a Dodger rally was erased when Suiter snared a line drive on the mound and doubled off the runner at second. Successive singles by Kurt Miller, Loperfido, Chris Doll loaded the bases in the sixth for the Dodgers, and were driven in by a clutch single by Lucas Wiesner and a double by Phillip Dye. Aggressive base running by Suiter in the 8th manufactured a run for the Pirates. While stealing third, an infield hit by Clint VanWeerduizen flaired over the pitcher's mound coming to a stop between the mound and the second baseman. Anticipating no one would catch it, Suiter rounded third and scored to reduce the lead to 4-2. In the ninth, Loperfido pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to earn the complete game victory for the Dodgers (9 IP, 2 ER, 5 Hits, 10 K). Pirate leaders were VanWeerdhuizen (2-4, 2 RBIs) and Suiter (3-3, 3 stolen bases 2 runs scored).
