Armada 10 Vipers 0
They avoided the sweep of the Flyers by winning 6-3 on Thursday and would continue the winning trend on the fourth of July by beating the Vipers 10-0 on a night where fireworks were seen around and in Blair Field.
Armada starter Rik Currier (3-4) went 5 innings striking out 9 Vipers and giving up no runs to get the win. Vipers starter Evan Greusel (6-1) went 4 1/3 giving up 6 runs and getting his first loss of the season. Viper hitters didn't have much luck either. All-Stars Darryl Brinkley, Felix Jose, and Drew Miller combined to go 1 for 9 with four walks and a steal.
The Armada bats were smoking as CF Steve Moss went 3 for 3 with a HR, 3 RBI, four runs scored night. 1B Tony Torcato went 4 for 5 with 3 RBI, a triple and 3 runs scored. Dan Trumble went 3 for 5 with a double and two runs scored. The Armada have three players going to the All-Star game July 15. P Nick Bierbrodt, P Nick Cavanaugh, 1B Norm Hutchins are going to the game in Texas later this month. As are Viper players Darryl Brinkley, Felix Jose, Drew Miller and Evan Greusel.
