assignment Admirals Lose 9th Straight

The Admirals lost their 9th straight in game 1 of this birthday boy's Monday night doubleheader versus Dead Last, to remain winless and dead last in the Men's A division standings.

After Dead Last declined the Admirals' offer to supply them a catcher to get them to ten players, there was a slight glimmer of hope that the guys in black and blue could find some outfield gaps to keep the game competitive.

That glimmer quickly faded however once the Admirals witnessed the speed and defensive skill demonstrated by the Dead Last outfielders. The best case in point was easily Forsey's Pillar-like scaling of the fence to pull back a BJ home run in the 3rd. Man, that was impressive! 👏

After watching Dead Last scratch in a 7-max run inning capped by the 2nd in the 2nd inning, the Admirals were down 11-2 and surely thinking: "Here we go again!" 🙄

The Admirals started the 3rd inning with a Bob triple, Beatty , Joey triple and BJ sac fly from Forsey's aforementioned robbery to plate 3.

In the bottom half of the inning, a no doubt Staples' 2-run , the last Dead Last would hit in the game, was all they would score to keep the Admirals within single digits.

In the 4th and Dead Last now playing with 10 players, the Admirals loaded the bases with no outs, but unfortunately, they failed to cash a single run! On the bright side...CHA-CHING! 🤑

Dead Last plated another 2 runs in the home half to build their lead to 10.

The Admirals held Dead Last to delicious donuts in the 5th and 6th innings and plated 4 runs over that span to get themselves within 6 going into the 7th and final inning.

Needing to put up a number for any hopes of getting off the schneid, the Admirals were sadly sat down in order to make the final 9-15. Hey, single digit loss, small victories!
