The Admirals finally opened the season in game 1 of a Thursday night double header against the defending champs. With all the turnover from last year, this game would make for a good measuring stick as to where the Admirals stack up vs. the top NSP teams in 2019.
The off season rust was apparent right from the start of the game as the Admirals generosity combined with some key hits saw Dead Last plate 8 runs to start the game.
Undaunted, the Admirals sticks responded by plating 5 of their own to cut the deficit to 3.
In the 2nd, the Admirals held Dead Last to a single run and scored 4 to tie the game.
Unfortunately however, the glimmer of hope quickly vanished as the guys in black watched Dead Last take advantage of some more Admirals generosity combined with some clutch hitting to plate 9 runs in each of the following two innings.
Small victory: the Admirals were able to hold Dead Last to a tasty donut in the final inning.
However, only able to counter with 6 runs over the last 3 innings, the Admirals opened the season with a 27-15 loss. 😔
No time to lick their wounds, as the Admirals had to pack their bags for a road game vs. the Dirty Mitts in game 2 of their double header.

Is there a stat for turning your back and sprinting to retrieve a deep fly ball only to watch it drop 25 feet in front of you???
