In game 2 of this double header, the Admirals took on a solid Combines squad.
With this beat writer arriving partway through the 4th inning, I'll again refer you to the disclaimer in the footer of this page for another short and sweet game recap...
In a tight game throughout, both teams were obviously not distracted by the myriad of unicorns and leprechauns running rampant through the outfield, as the defense on both sides was particularly stellar, each holding their opponent's potent offense to single digits.
Ok, ok, maybe DC was caught staring at the magical creatures in the 5th when he made that basket catch on what appeared to be a can of corn.
Down 6-9 going into the bottom of 7, the Combines quickly plated a run to shorten their deficit to 2 with one out. Next batter singled and up came the tying run to the plate who promptly smoked a line-drive to Paul at 2B who quickly fired to 1B to double off the runner diving to get back to the bag for a bang-bang-game-ending-double-play that allowed the Admirals to squeak out the W.
The Admirals have now won 6 in-a-row and rumour has it they'll be at the next Falcons game expecting to be rewarded with free beer!
