7/19/2013 9:38:00 AM Pirates continue series Saturday
The Windom Pirates amateur baseball team will continue its best-of-three playoff series Saturday, when they travel to Hadley to take on the Buttermakers in a 2 p.m. contest.
Hadley defeated the Pirates Wednesday 5-3 at Island Park in the first game of the series, taking a 1-0 lead.
If Windom wins Saturday's game, a deciding third game of the series will be played Sunday at 2 p.m. in Hadley.
The Region 13C playoffs pit teams from the First Nite League and Gopher League, with the two leagues crossing seeds for the first round. Since the Gopher League has eight teams and the First Nite League had only six teams playoff eligible, two Gopher League teams -- Wilmont and Luverne -- earned automatic byes into the next round of the playoffs.
Following the completion of the first-round series, the remaining eight teams in the playoffs will be re-seeded, with the second round scheduled to begin July 24.
