The Pilots’ pitchers gave up nine runs to the Chili Peppers with innings continuing due to the team’s five errors on the night.

Peninsula (7-2) gave its best shot, tying the game 6-6 on an Alden Mathes home run, but faltered down the stretch against Tri-City (3-6) to fall 9-7.

The Pilots return home to host the Chili Peppers for two games Monday. 

Friday’s game was suspended due to rain in the bottom of the fourth inning, so the two teams will complete the final 5 1/2 innings Monday at 6 p.m. with gates opening at 4:30 p.m. After a 30-minute intermission, Peninsula and Tri-City will square off once again in a seven-inning ballgame.

Monday will be a Dollar Dog Night, and the Pilots will help celebrate the 246th birthday of the United States Army.
