Armada 0 Silver Sox 5
The Armada came out before the All-Star break looking to extend their win streak to four games. The Silver Sox had other plans though as they put on a pitching and defensive show shutting down the Armada for a 5-0 victory. Reno extends their overall record to 17-26 and Long Beach falls to 22-21 before the break.
Andrew Layfield (0-2) pitched well in his first start, but got the loss going 5 innings giving up 3 runs on 7 hits, walking 2 and striking out 1. Ryan Claypool came into relief for 4 innings giving up 2 runs on 4 hits, walking 1 and striking out 2. DH Chris Klemm went 2 for 4, C Octavio Martinez, 2B Julian Williams and SS Michael Glomb would each get a hit. Long Beach was kept quiet for 5 total hits.
Reno would send out six pitchers to five hit the Armada on Sunday. Jesse Hall (5-3) who did not start the game would win it pitching 2 innings giving up 1 hit and striking out 1. SS Andre Alvarado went 2 for 3 driving in two and scoring a run. RF Ross McCoy would drive in a run and score two. All-Star C DJ Dixon went 2 for 4 and so did DH Juan Senreiso who also scored a run.
P Nick Bierbrodt, P Rik Currier, P Nick Cavanagh, 1B Norm Hutchins and C DJ Dixon now move on to Tuesday's All-Star Game at San Angelo, Texas against the United League All-Stars. Game time is at 5:20pm. The Armada are back in action on Thursday July 17 against the hated ones, The OC Flyers at Blair Field. Game time is at 7:05pm.
