GLENDALE — The Glendale baseball team opened its season with a 13-1 nonleague shellacking of Myrtle Point on Thursday afternoon.

The Pirates finished off the game in 4 1/2 innings with a 10-run rule victory.

Alyx Rocha earned the decision for the Pirates, combining with Wyatt Kahl on a four-hitter. Tyler Beyer-Smith was the losing pitcher for Myrtle Point.

It was a productive day at the plate for Glendale, which stroked 15 hits. Rocha was 3-for-3 with a double and a triple. Tanner Ring was 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs, and Justin Rodriguez was 3-for-3. 

The Pirates host Lost River and potentially a game with Riddle Friday.
