The Vidor Pirates lost their final home game of the season Tuesday night 8-4 after a rally by the Port Neches-Groves Indians scored six runs in the seventh inning.

After a scoreless first inning, the Indians took the lead 2-0 in the top of the second inning. A single to third by the lead off batter set up PNG’s scores that followed. A sacrifice bunt and another single advanced the runner to third base, then attempting to steal home, he managed to escape a rundown and slide into home for the score. The second run came after the third batter singled, stole second and third base, then tagged up and scored on a fly out to center fielder Zach Seigrest.

The Pirates took the lead in the bottom of the inning after an initial pop out by Shayne Midkiff, Kelby Odom singled on a line drive to center and advanced to second when Cory Kizer walked. Mason Brown then advanced to first and loaded the bases on a bunt.

Turf field will benefit more than Friday night football

VISD Head Coach and Athletic Director Jeff Mathews says the Pirates will be able to practice rain or shine after Croak Field is turfed over the summer.

“It’s huge,” Vidor Head Coach and Athletic Director Jeff Mathews said when asked about the benefits of a turf field at Pirate Stadium. While many only think of Pirate Football when they think of Pirate Stadium, Mathews estimated that with turf available, probably half the high school student population will use the field regularly.

“Probably 500 to 600 kids, or about half the high school enrollment, will use it. Besides freshman, junior varsity and varsity football, you’ve got boys and girls soccer, the band, Brigadettes, junior high football and brigs, and even the little league football. It just makes so much more possible to have an all-weather field,” he said.

Mathews said the necessity of placing temporary classrooms at the high school campus following Hurricane Harvey’s destruction of Oak Forest Elementary and Vidor Middle School had eliminated one of two football practice fields.

Pirates come from behind to beat Lumberton 13-8

The varsity Vidor Pirates hosted the Lumberton Raiders Monday in a non-district baseball game and after falling behind early, came back to win 13-8.

Lumberton opened the game with a two-run first inning and blanked the Pirates in the bottom of the inning. Vidor halved Lumberton’s lead in the second when Shayne Midkiff doubled and then scored on a Cory Kizer ground ball.

The Raiders had one of their best innings of the game in the top of the third, scoring three runs to increase their lead to 5-1, but the Pirates responded in kind, scoring three runs of their own in the bottom of the inning.
