The 3rd place Admirals hosted a 2nd place Dead Last squad on this Tuesday night 9PM game looking to narrow the gap in the NSP Men's Division 1 standings.
The Sign Out sheet was again filled in black for this game, making it now 6-for-6 in Men's Division 1 games where the team had to reach into reserves to field a team.
The game started with Dead Last jumping out to quick 3-0 lead after the first inning.
After holding their opponent off the scoreboard in the 2nd, the Admirals plated 5 runs before the 3rd out of the inning was recorded.
In the 3rd, the Admirals again won the inning scoring another 5 compared to Dead Last's 2 to take a 10-5 lead.
Dead Last scored another 2 in the 4th and managed to keep the Admirals off the board to cut their deficit to 3.
In the 5th, Dead Last scored a sole run and again held the Admirals to a goose egg, making the score 10-8.
After holding Dead Last off the scoreboard in the 6th, the Admirals sticks managed to plate 3 insurance runs and took the field in the 7th trying to protect a 5 run lead.
Thanks to a bit of Admirals generosity and a lot of clutch Deadly hitting, 9 runs crossed the plate and the Admirals now needed to score 5 for the walk-off win.
Unfortunately, it was just not to be on this night of reciprocal box shooting, as the Admirals only managed to score 1 to make the final 17-14.
The Admirals hope to close the regular season on a winning note when they take on the league-leading Combines and The Machine in a doubleheader next Tuesday.
