In my final contributions to the Admirals, this recap is brought to you by the Notorious D.O.U.G.
Have you ever been at a bar, chatting to a couple of gals thinking to yourself “Wow, I got this. I’m brining both these babes home. I’m on fire tonight.” Well, that is how the evening started out for the Admirals.
Up 18-5 after three innings, it looked like the Admirals were going to easily defeat Village Inn and sweep this best of three series.
Now, let me ask you this. Have you ever been at a bar, chatting to a couple of gals, planning on brining both of them home – when all of a sudden you piss yourself, puke on yourself and a younger, taller, wealthier fella walks into the bar and starts chatting up the babes?
The Admirals were outscored 21-7 over the final four innings resulting in a 26-25 loss.
Village Inn deserves a lot of credit for this win. They made some bad plays early in the game, but, they tightened the D and started smacking the baseball all over the park. Village Inn kept the line up moving with guys in every part of the order contributing: clutch singles, towering home runs, taking walks and driving in runs.
