After falling behind 2-0 after one inning of play, the Pirates rallied to score three runs in the top of the second. Gage Allen led off with a single, then Garrick Levesque was hit by a pitch. Torres hit an RBI double to score Allen followed by a wild pitch that led Levesque to cross home plate. Savage was next with an RBI single to give VC a 3-2 lead.
In the fifth, Oleson doubled, then scored on Allen's groundout, and in the sixth, Savage doubled, then scored on a groundout by Godinez.
