assignment Admirals Keep It Rolling vs. The Beers
Tuesday 7:45PM July 17th, 2018
With a 10-man line up unable to score the opponent and both Admirals beat writers absent for this game - Doug busy negotiating a Dougothy Casino takeover of the MGM Grand, and Dunner having to hold the Baseball Oshawa Peewee Cubs coaching reigns while Grambo was away on business - this recap will be put together (or made up...see disclaimer at the bottom of this page) from the chicken scratched Admirals score sheet (with a pile of missed RBIs) and The Beers score sheet filled with only 2 numbers: a 3 in the 1st inning and another 3 in the 4th.

The Admirals started the game by batting through the order, plating 5 runs to jump out to a quick 5-0 lead.

The Beers countered with 3 runs of their own, by laying down 6 straight perfect bunts. Or maybe it was 3 solo home runs. Who knows? But I'm going with the bunts...

Finally on to their bunting ways, the Admirals pulled the infield in and forced The Beers to do something different. Apparently the move worked as no more runs were scored as The Beers' score sheet would indicate.

In the 2nd, the Admirals put up the 10-run-league-inning-max and appear to have kept the infield in, as The Beers were held to a goose egg in their bottom half of the inning.

The Beers held the Admirals to a sole run in the 3rd, but appear to have been stymied again by the Admirals' pulled in infield, as they were again held to a goose egg in their home half of the inning.

In the 4th, the Admirals posted another 10-run-league-inning-max going station-to-station, but The Beers solved the Admirals' pulled in infield by scoring 3 more runs, no idea how though, in their bottom half to cut the score to 26-6.

With Dunner showing up in the top of the 5th, bearing ice for Mitch who obviously hasn't read the Admirals Rookie Handbook (Chapter 2, particularly), the guys advised him it was too late to get him in the game where they were down 7-6.

With a look of concern, Dunner was quickly relieved when he realized the Admirals couldn't have 6 based on the amount of ink, even if chicken scratched, seen on their score sheet.

After swapping donuts in the 5th, this game was a wrap.

No time to celebrate, as the Admirals had the Father Dodgers on deck in game 2 of their double header.
