assignment Modest Admirals Pull Off Walk-Off Comeback
Monday 8:30PM August 24th, 2020
The Admirals pulled off the walk-off comeback to sweep their Monday night doubleheader vs. their favourite opponent.

After confirming DC's absence for game 2, a load management decision was made to keep Dunner out of the lineup to allow picture day to continue as planned.

It was clear the Dbacks had put game 1 behind them as they came out sticking, jumping out to a quick 5-0 lead.

In the home half, surely in their own heads about the presence of the photographer, the modest Admirals sticks were only able to scratch in two to cut their deficit to 3.

Another 4 runs for the Dbacks followed in the 2nd, which the rest of the modest Admirals' bats could only counter with 1, to double their deficit to 6.

After holding the Dbacks to 2 runs in the 3rd, and now the 2nd time through the Admirals batting order (and obviously more comfortable with the presence of the photographer), a hit parade finally showed up, plating 6 runs which cut their deficit to 2.

Unrattled (ha!), the Dbacks rattled (ha!) back 5 and held the Admirals to 2, which had them up 16-11 after 4 innings of play.

In the 5th, the Admirals kept chipping away, holding the Dbacks to 2 runs while putting up 5, to cut their deficit back to 2.

More chipping followed in the 6th, as the Admirals held the Dbacks to 3 while scoring 4 to close the margin to 1.

In the final 7th and open inning, the Admirals held the fort, keeping the Dbacks off the score sheet and returned to the dug out at the top of their order, needing 2 runs to pull off the walk-off comeback.

Singles by Duran and Graham, followed by a walk taken by Mitch 😱, and up to bat next was Ryan with sacks juiced, salivating at the opportunity to be the hero on Admirals picture day.

Well while the photographer had put his camera away at this point, Ryan delivered nonetheless, smacking a line drive over the left fielder to cash the 2 runs needed to complete off the walk-off comeback win.

Final: 22-21

And with the wins, the Admirals win the bet (see Comment #2 & #3).
Should come as no surprise, but we pick Jamie! 😜
