Opponent: vs. Banana Slugs
at Banana Slugs
Diamond: Clarington Fields - NE
Water Boy: Nobody
Weather:

Armed with only ASA approved bats and their unimposing ability to hit home runs on kids ball parks, a band of men have roamed the Slo-Pitch world in search of the biggest trophies, the finest booze, and the loosest ladies (and moms).

With their sights set on all the treasure that Clarington has to offer, this band of men formed a team called the Admirals and plotted a new course, sailing East for the bountiful fields of the CSP league.

With the dawn of the 2021 CSP season, the Admirals are eager to get back to the diamonds, even if their play is again governed by social distancing rules and guidelines.

The Admirals are guided by few principles but have a short list of core rules that govern the crew:

  • Ye shall battle hard, but always maintain good sportsmanship
  • Ye shall always run out a fly-ball
  • Ye shall be ridiculed for striking out, swinging or looking
  • Ye shall never make eye contact with another Admiral after hitting into a double play
  • Ye shall walk the plank after stranding a runner at 3rd with less than 2 outs
  • Ye shall pay the heftiest ransom for not showing up without notice
  • Ye shall pay your incurred Team Fines
  • Ye shall splice the mainbrace after all battles

Come out and catch all the action the 2021 season has to offer, particularly the DBacks Wives Club swooning over their favourite CSP player: Mike McDreamy! 😍

assignment Big First and Last Innings Not Big Enough

The Admirals had big first and last innings at the plate, but it wasn't enough as they dropped game 2 of their Wednesday night double header to remain winless on the season.

The Admirals sticks got to business in the top of the 1st inning, plating the 7 max-run per inning, but unfortunately, Dead Last countered by doing the exact same.

Going into the 2nd, a few teenage kids (that were brought by some asshole Admirals) took to the stands to cheer on the guys in black and blue. Some Admirals were "cheered on" more than others.

Knowing they needed to keep up with Dead Last's hitting prowess, but possibly distracted by the obnoxious yet comedic teenage supporters, the Admirals stalled, scratching in only 4 runs over the next 4 innings compared to Dead Last's 16 over than span.

Down 12, and teenage fans finally quieted down, the Admirals showed some fight in the 6th and final open inning, scoring 8 runs to make the final score a more respectable 19-23.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Admirals 7 0 2 1 1 8 X 19
Dead Last 7 7 0 4 5 X X 23

assignment Admirals Drop to Dead Last

The Admirals just couldn't keep up with the impressive home run power of Dead Last, dropping game 1 of their Wednesday night double header.

There seemed to be an air of optimism that the Admirals could notch their first W of the season seeing:
• They were up 5-4 in their season opener versus this opponent before the game was called due to weather
• The team's spark plug was making his season debut
• The team was finally all dressed in unison? 🤔

Sure the Admirals held a slim lead versus this opponent in their season opener before the game was called, but it didn't take long for Dead Last to show they had shaken the rust from their 2020 COVID hiatus from the league, smashing out five s in the first 4 innings.

Even despite the impressive display of Dead Last hitting, that said air of Admirals optimism remained going into the 6th, and umpire later-called final inning, as the they were down only 10-13 holding the hammer.

After the Admirals recorded an out from the inning's leadoff hitter, the Dead Last parade continued, pounding out 3 more, plating their next 7 batters in a row and posting a snowman before the Admirals could record the inning's final out.

Now down eleven, the Admirals sticks couldn't respond as they sad tromboned their way to posting a goose egg to make the final score 10-21 (and final home run tally 1-8).

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Dead Last 3 0 7 3 0 8 X 21
Admirals 3 1 4 2 0 0 X 10

assignment Admirals Get Slugged by Slugs

A Slugs team home run derby competition feasted on some late Admirals relief pitching and generosity, as the Admirals ended up getting smoked in game 2 of their Monday night doubleheader.

Down 7-1 going into the 5th inning, the game was still within Admirals reach.

However, with the Admirals' starting pitcher now in the parking lot for debating his positioning on the mound, talks of home runs and chicken dinners only echoed louder from the Slugs dugout as they began to feast on the Admirals relief pitcher and defensive generosity in the field.

The Slugs scratched in 3 converted touchdowns over the final 3 innings and held the Admirals to 4 runs, running away in this one 28-5.

Boxscore:

assignment Admirals Fall Short to Slugs

Playing a makeshift infield, the Admirals came up short in game 1 of this Monday night doubleheader versus the Banana Slugs.

With both Admirals' middle infielders signed out for the night, the Admirals made some infield moves that saw: Poutine as SS, Beatty at 2B and Morgan at 1B. Running out as the cutoff man to right field and trying to field balls hit to 2B, it was clear Morgan was pumped and trying to impress to play out from behind the plate.

The moves seem to work early as the Admirals held a 6-2 lead going into the 3rd, but after holding the Admirals to a singleton and responding with the 7 max runs, the Slugs took a 9-7 lead.

The Slugs built their lead to 6 after holding the Admirals to a run and scoring 3 in both the 4th and 5th innings.

In the 6th, sparked by a leadoff Beasty Beatty bomb, the Admirals scratched in 5 and held the Slugs to a singleton to get themselves within 2 going into the final open inning.

Unfortunately, the Admirals could not get any closer as the Slugs recorded the final 3 outs on 4 batters faced to make it a 14-16 final.

Boxscore:

Admirals 1 5 1 1 1 5 0 14

assignment Admirals Surrender After Hosting Combines BP

The Admirals flat sticks were no match playing host to an impressive display of Combines batting practice, dropping game 2 of their Wednesday night doubleheader.

All warmed from game 1, the Combines sent their entire 10-man lineup to the plate in the 1st inning, scoring their 1st seven batters to reach the max runs per inning.

In the bottom half, the Admirals, well those who noticed anyway, were licking their chops at the outfield gaps the Combines opened up by playing a 5-man infield, but sadly, they countered by going 3-up-3-down.

In the 2nd, things only got better for the Combines as they again plated the 7 max runs per inning to take a two touchdown lead. This time by sending only 8 batters to the plate.

In response, the Admirals scratched in 5 to cut their deficit to 9.

A meaningless 3rd inning saw the teams swap goose eggs.

In the 4th, the Combines BP resumed scoring another 7 max run inning, again from 8 plate appearances. In the home half, the Admirals again went 3-up-3-down.

After another 3 Combine runs in the 5th, murmurs of beer began in the Admirals dugout if they couldn't significantly cut into their 19 run deficit.

A one out JP double to the fence gave the team a glimmer of hope, but he was the only run the Admirals could score before the 3rd out was recorded.

As the umpire announced last inning, down 18, the Admirals waved the proverbial white flag and headed to the parking lot to lick their wounds over some post-game bevies.

Despite the disheartening losses, lots of laughs in the parking lot listening to Mitch's attempts to make friends in the WMSPL, and of course, thoughts of poor Ryan who had to drive him home. 😂

Editor's Note: If there are errors in player stats, please cut our scorekeeper's inexperienced son some slack! I tried to piece together what I could based on what was there and not there.

assignment Admirals Can't Keep Up with Combines

The Admirals sticks just couldn't keep up in game one of this Wednesday night doubleheader, as the Combines won it in run away fashion.

Things were looking promising early as the Admirals scored 6 in the top of the 1st inning, but all momentum on the night seemed to come to a grinding halt after the inning was ended on a Poutine out for stepping in front of the plate. There should be a fine for that!

In the bottom half, a 10-man Combines/Banana Slugs lineup scratched in 4 to cut their deficit to two.

After blanking the Admirals in the 2nd inning by an IEDP from the newest Admirals' first ever at bat in the CSP (cha-ching) and scoring another 3, the Combines took the lead. A lead they'd only build on.

A meaningless 3rd inning saw the teams swap 3 runs, and after holding the Admirals to another goose egg in the 4th the Combines countered with six to build a 16-9 lead.

In the 5th, with runners on 1st and 2nd, Dunner hit a ground ball to the 3rd baseman and somehow avoided hitting into a triple, let alone double play. While there's no team fine for hitting into a triple play, lord knows many would've been lobbying for a hefty one had it happened.

Seemingly eager to make a memorable impression with his new teammates, the newest Admiral rang the cash register again (!) in the following at bat (his 2nd ever in the CSP) by stranding Mike at 3rd with less than 2 outs to finish 2 for 2 for the game. That's 2 cha-chings in 2 at bats! Ada boy Jer! 🤑

In the end, the Admirals couldn't muster any runs in the 5th and allowed another 2 Combines to cross the plate before taking their at bats in the 6th.

After again swapping 3 runs in the 6th, the game was called by the umpire due to time to make the final 21-12 Combines.

Editor's Note: If there are errors in player stats, please cut our scorekeeper's inexperienced son some slack! I tried to piece together what I could based on what was there and not there.

Boxscore:

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Final
Admirals 6 0 3 0 0 3 X 12
