Pearl River sophomore pitcher Kevin Considine gave the Pirates four solid innings in his first career start, but it was his bat that provided the winning margin.
Considine singled home Brendan Ryan in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Pearl River a 3-2 victory at home against North Rockland Tuesday.
Pearl River took a 2-0 lead in the third inning when Shane Ocasal doubled and came around to score on Rich Masley's triple. Masley scored the second run on a wild pitch.
North Rockland scored one run in the fourth against Considine and one in the sixth off reliever Mike Vinci.
Ryan, Pearl River's ace, came on with the bases loaded and none out in the seventh inning. Third baseman Jake Tedesco handled a hard grounder and threw home for the first out. Ryan got out of the inning by inducing a double-play ball to second baseman Tom Higgins, who stepped on the bag and threw to first.
Ryan, who improved to 2-0 on the season, then led off the bottom of the seventh with a double to right and scored on Considine's hit down the third-base line.
