After losing a 16-8 home game Friday afternoon to the Talihina Golden Tigers, the Poteau Pirates baseball team returned to Town Creek Park for Day 1 of the 2013 Poteau Wood Bat Festival, and picked up two wins.

The Pirates are slated to play Plainview at 10 this morning, then face Seminole at 2 this afternoon in Day 2 action. However, if inclement weather occurs, the games will be moved to the same times on Friday.
