After dropping a couple of heartbreakers Saturday night to the Newark Pilots, the Pioneers ended their 5 game losing streak by pounding 16 hits, including 4 doubles in a 13-2 rout of the Watertown Wizards on Sunday afternoon. The offensive outburst was led by Justin Lacy who had 3 hits and 3 RBI's. Aaron Zaleznik picked up the win, giving up 2 runs in 5 innings. Jordan Carter, Jay Ferri and Cody Kentzel kept the Wizards off the board the last four frames.

The series concludes on Wednesday, June 22. After an off day the Pioneers are home Friday and Saturday against the Watertown Wizards.
