The Pirates are coming off of a decisive doubleheader sweep of the Wentworth Red Dragons on Tuesday afternoon in Lexington.

A two-run triple by Cezan Rafaela, an RBI single by Jason Luster, an RBI single by Tyler White, and a groundout by Michael Babbitt during the first inning and a two-run home run by Jason in the second inning fueled the North Central Missouri College Pirates' offense early. Luster racked up three RBIs on three hits.
In game two, Joan Rondon went 2-4 as the North Central Missouri College Pirates took home a 4-1 win, with Rondon singling in the fourth and fifth innings. Wentworth couldn't get anything going as long as Tyler White was on the rubber. WMA managed just one hit off of White, who allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out four during his 3 2/3 innings of work.
