After getting blown out by one neighbouring team, the Nanaimo Pirates will try for better against some other Island rivals.
The Hub City Paving Pirates play the Victoria Mariners on Saturday (May 23) down the Malahat, then return home to play a doubleheader against the Victoria Eagles on Sunday.
The Pirates were shut out 10-0 by the Parksville Royals up the road at Springwood Park on Wednesday night. Nanaimo made seven errors and the home team capitalized for a mercy-rule-shortened win.
The Pirates had three hits, including a double to the wall by Matt Skingle.
GAME ON … The Pirates and Eagles play Sunday at noon and 2:30 p.m. at Serauxmen Stadium.
