assignment Admirals Take Game 2 of Season Opening Double Header
Tuesday 9:00PM May 22nd, 2018In game 2 of their season opening double header, the Admirals faced the Dirty Mitts, a new team in the NSP.
With Mike & Jomo talking about the A's vs. Falcons game that was going to start shortly in the WMSPL, questions of Duran's whereabouts began to fill the Admirals dugout.
The Admirals could've used Duran's stick in the lineup as they collectively struggled to get going again in this game.
But appears the Storm needed Duran's services more as they managed to narrowly squeak out a win over the last ranked team in the latest WMSPL Power Rankings.
But I digress...and sorry Duran, couldn't resist... :)
Anyway, back to this game, the teams exchanged a run or two here and there which saw the Admirals hold a slim 6-5 lead going into the bottom of the 4th inning where the team called on the services of their self-proclaimed "stud closer", TP.
Slowly turning doubters into believers, TP delivered again holding the opponent off the scoreboard.
In the 5th, and what the umpire would later call last inning, the Admirals sticks finally broke out putting up an eight spot to take a relatively comfortable 14-5 lead, where again TP managed to close out the game without affecting his scintillating 0.00 ERA.
