The Kirkeys and Whytes packed the stands of the northeast diamond at Clarington Fields as the Admirals were set to take on the young, upstart Father Dodgers for the 2nd time this season.
With thoughts of their recent nail biting win over these same Dad avoiding lads still fresh in their minds, nothing was said, but you could read every Admirals' thought bubble clear as day: "Start Strong. Finish Strong".
The Dad avoiding lads jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead thanks to a no doubter that landed well over the right field fence by their 3-hitter.
In response, the Admirals indeed started strong by plating the league-mandated-10-run-max per inning.
In the 2nd, the Dodgers scored 4 thanks in large part to a 3-run shot by the same aforementioned 3-hitter.
But again, the Admirals countered nicely with 7 runs of their own, highlighted by back-to-back jacks by DC and Dean to start the inning and a sac-clearing-double by Dunner to put them up 17-6 after 2 innings of play.
In the 3rd, the Dodger bats were back at it plating another 3 runs, this time via the small ball, which the Admirals got right back in their bottom half.
The Admirals D held strong in the 4th sitting the Dodger batters down in order. In their bottom half, the Admirals sticks put up another 7 runs to put this one on cruise control.
Showing their grit, the pesky Dad avoiders batted through their order in the umpire-called last inning and plated 6 runs to make the final a more respectable 27-15.
After a shaky 2-3-1 stint that followed their 10-0 start to the season, the Admirals have won 6 straight, and rumours are again swirling about them going to the next Falcons' game to be rewarded with free beer.
On that note, the Admirals' players, termed by these same Falcons as a "Podunk-dwelling patchwork-created band of yahoos" (you can't make this shit up), have recently learned of the Falcons campaign to smear the Admirals.
Infuriated by this propaganda, the Admirals are now wanting an exhibition game vs. their "major league parent club" for bragging rights. Considering the Falcons struggles so far this year, the Admirals have even agreed to let the Falcons have slo-pitch pitching phenom Mike "Poutine" Labrecque for this game.
What do you say Jeremy? Can we make it happen? :)
In other news, the team learned how to get the typically quieter Labrecque fired up during post game bevies: tell him Donaldson is shit! :)
Antonio "Fit 4 Life" Silva – 4 for 4, 2B, 4 RBI and 3 runs scored.
Jason "I Also Bring Snacks When I'm Water Boy" Whyte – 4 for 4, 2B, 3 RBI and 2 runs scored.
Tim "I'll Run for You...for $5" Gibson – 4 for 4, RBI and 2 runs scored.
Duran "Poutine Stuck Me Out Looking" Spray – 4 for 4, 2 2B, 2 RBI and 4 runs scored.
Ryan "Best. 3B. EVER" Beatty – 4 for 4, 2B, 3 RBI and 4 runs scored.
Dean "I Play Better When My Family is Here" Kirkey – (with his family in attendance) 3 for 4, 2B, 3B, HR, 4 RBI and 3 runs scored.
Mike: $5 (stranding a runner at 3B with less than 2 outs)
The team fund sincerely thanks you for your contributions! :)
I want a new nickname.

WHOA...how will Falcons Jeremy respond to being called out by Admirals Editor in Chief Sean Dunn?
So many questions.
Is the game played at the Admirals home diamond or the kids diamond that Major League Parent Club calls home?
What kind of ball should be used? WMSPL approved flight restricted nerf balls?
Will the WMSPL approved "Home Run Rule" be in effect?
Poutine has a WAR of 4.5. How will that impact the line that VEGAS (not me, the city) sets on the game.

Heard back from Jeremy: "The Falcons have 14 games this month. I doubt I could persuade the team to get together to have their asses handed to them for another. We get that enough already."
Sorry fellas, not looking like it's gonna happen, even if we give 'em Pousuna...
