Armada 7 Cracker Cats 4

Another fantastic game between these two ball clubs of the GBL. Edmonton trailed by three going into the fifth when they would tie it up. It wouldn't last as the Armada took back the lead that same inning and would not let it go winning their second straight against Edmonton 7-4.

The lead was taken back in the fifth when CF Steve Moss crushed a two run homer over the left field wall to extend the lead to 5-3. Newcomers Brett Flowers and Michael Glomb would drive in the two insurance runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Moss finished the game 1 for 3 with a HR, 2 RBI and two runs scored. Flowers went 4 for 5 with a RBI and a run scored. He's 7 for 10 in this series against Edmonton. Glomb went 2 for 4 with a RBI.

Armada starter Ryan Claypool (4-4) got the win going 6 innings giving up 4 runs on 6 hits while walking 2 and striking out 6. The save, his second going to Justin Segal, who went 2 innings striking out 2. Edmonton starter Nicholas Peterson (1-3) got the loss going 5 2/3 innings giving up 5 runs on 8 hits while walking 6 and striking out 5.

1B Jose Morban would tie the game in the fifth with his 3 RBI triple and CF Ruddy Yan would sac fly in a run in the seventh. Morban went 1 for 4 with 3 RBI. Yan went 1 for 3 with a RBI and a run scored. C Jon Pasieka went 2 for 4.

Probable starters for tomorrows game for Edmonton Eric Van Slyke (3-3) and for Long Beach Dusty Gober (3-2). Game time is 7:05pm.

The boys are playinggood ball of late. The new additions have been paying BIG dividends already. The pitching staff is starting to show what they can do. The hits are coming in bunches at the right time. They start the 2nd half of the season at home with 10 out of 14 games at home. I've noticed that lately the boys are playing alot more loose and not so tight. Especialy at the plate. More patient, getting more hits, more walks therfore producing more scoring oppertunities. All these things are evident in the scores. So far this homestand the boys are averaging 7.4 runs per game while giving up 3.8 runs per game. That will get you into the playoffs in the end of the season. I told you 2 weeks ago in this blog that they needed better starting pitching and pick up a couple of good batters and they would make a run towards the playoffs in the 2nd half. Hopefully my analisis is correct. GO ARMADA!!!!
