Flat Admirals bats, and an eight run 3rd inning where several Dead Last hit balls disappeared in the dusky outfield sky snapped the Admirals current win streak at 1.
No dusky sky in the first inning, as the Admirals were able to clearly see the two MAMMOTH s launched by the Dead Last #4 and #6 hitters, which led to all of their 4 runs scored in the first.
In response, the Admirals could only put up a singleton.
After swapping a run in the 2nd, the Admirals took the field in the top of the 3rd with a dusky sky looming.
In what seemed like a very long inning, by the time the 3rd out was recorded, 3 of the 4 Admirals outfielders had a familiar pose on several balls that would normally be routine catches. Add to that some key Dead Last hits, and Dead Last had scored a snowman to build their lead to double-digits.
The Admirals flat sticks got flatter as they could only respond with a goose egg.
In the 4th, the Admirals escaped the inning only allowing two, but could only get one of those back in their home half.
After allowing only a singleton in the umpire-called last inning, now down 16-3, mumblings of a comeback, Dbacks style, were heard throughout the Admirals dugout.
While it appeared to have FINALLY sparked the Admirals sticks, the 13 run deficit proved to be too much, as the Admirals could only plate 6 before the 3rd out was recorded to make the final a more respectable 16-9.
