It’s the start of an eight-game homestand for the Pirates, who are in fourth place in the B.C. Premier Baseball League and in contention to climb higher.

“There’s a lot of scoreboard watching…” said Doug Rogers, Pirates manager. “There’s opportunity there. Guys are obviously pretty excited and they want to hunt down those teams above them, so we’re playing for that.”
