assignment Admirals Tie it Up to Get Walked Off

The Admirals rallied late to tie, but got walked off to drop game 2 of this Wednesday night doubleheader versus the Combines.

With the NFL kicking off tonight, and this beat writer having to deal with all things NFL pool related, it doesn't leave much time to write this recap.

It's too bad too because there was lots to write about in this one.

Like the 1st Admirals triple play. Ever! Ask Mitch about it. He'll be happy to tell you all about it! 😄

And Logan taking an errant throw to 1st off the side of the head. 😔

And Mike getting nailed by another rocket up the middle, this time off the top of his foot. 😔

And Mitch getting wrung up on 3rd strike looking with a runner on 3rd on a pitch that "didn't hit the mat". Cha-cha-ching! 🤑

But alas, time eludes me.

Skipping to the top of the final 7th inning in a game that the Admirals were leading until the bottom of the 5th, the Admirals were down by two field goals - excuse all the football analogies lately, but it is football season 😁 - that's 6 for you non-football connoisseurs.

A leadoff Jomo triple got things going followed by the aforementioned cha-cha-ching and a Duran over-the-fence home run to left got the Admirals to within 4.

The Combines leftfielder's robbery of Beatty's laser in foul territory stole the 2nd out.

Singles by Joey, Mark and Mike followed by a 2-run BJ double and a Dunner 2-run single knotted the scores at 22 before the Admirals' 3rd and final out was recorded.

The Admirals then took the field in the bottom half of the inning with the daunting task of keeping the Combines off the scoreboard to salvage the tie.

Eerily similar to how the Admirals walked off the Combines in the Championship Finals of their inaugural season, a Combines leadoff single got things going. A Tim-like runner was put in to pinch run at 1st. Another single followed that saw the Tim-like runner skate to 3rd.

With the Admirals outfield now moved in, another solid single to right followed that saw the Tim-like runner trot home to walk this one off 23-22.
