assignment Admirals Sticks Fall Flat Late

The Admirals' sticks fell flat in the final 2 innings to let game 1 of this Wednesday night doubleheader get away versus the Combines.

As the away team the Admirals started 2 up 2 down, followed by a Mitch triple that was cashed in by a Beatty double. A Joey single moved Ryan to 3rd, but that's all the Admirals could muster in the inning.

In the home half, balls to the outfield that disappeared in a dusky sky helped the Combines scratch in 2 to take a slim 1 run lead.

Capped a Beasty Beatty , an Admirals 2-out rally plated the 7 max runs per inning in the top of the 2nd.

After sitting the Combines down in order in the bottom half, the Admirals were up 8-2.

In a complete score reversal of the 2nd inning, the 3rd saw the Admirals get blanked and the Combines plate the max 7 runs to retake a 1 run lead.

A Joyous Joey in a meaningless 4th resulted in the teams swapping fives to keep the Combines up by 1.

In the 5th, the Combines held the Admirals to 3 runs and again posted the max 7 runs per inning to go up by 5.

Needing a response, a leadoff double by Mitch in the top of 6 got things going, but unfortunately, the Admirals could do no more as they followed by going 3 up 3 down.

After holding the Combines to a tasty donut with stranded runners on 2nd and 3rd in the bottom half of the 6th, the Admirals were brimming with confidence as they took their at-bats in the final 7th and open inning.

Down 21-16 and in need of a number, the confident Admirals again followed by going 3 up 3 down. 😔

Tough to wage a comeback when the final two innings are ended on 6 up 6 down! 🥶
