Suffern took advantage of an error and a close call on a tag play to score four runs in the top of the seventh, then held on for an 8-5 victory at Pearl River Thursday.
The Pirates had taken the lead with five-run fourth inning. Pearl River's first four hitters reached in the inning, which began with three consecutive singles by Chris Beers, Shane Ocasal and John Doherty before a walk to Kevin Considine.
Pearl River put its first two hitters on in the fifth inning as well on consecutive singles by Ocasal and Doherty, but the Pirates were unable to score in the inning.
Pearl River carried a 5-4 lead into the seventh inning, but Suffern's first two batters reached and pitcher Dan Campbell's throw to third on a ground ball got away to let the tying run score.
Later in the inning, the home plate umpire ruled that Pearl River missed a tag on a play up the first base line. Pearl River Head Coach Bruce Miller asked the umpire to check with his partner, but he refused and eventually Miller was ejected for arguing.
Pearl River (1-1) will play 11 a.m. Saturday at home against Pleasantville.
