It defiantly was LIMA TIME tonight at Blair Field as Jose Lima helped lead the Armada squad to a 5-1 victory over the St. George Road Runners. Fans gave Lima a standing ovation as he walked off the field. The Fleet is now 3-6 in the second half of the GBL season.
Bottom of the second Steve Moss started off with a walk. Then Asif Shah followed with a base hit, and Daryl Jones walked to load the bases. Matt Edgecombe hit a single to bring in Moss and Shah to give the Armada a 2-0 lead. Howard hit a single of his own to load the bases. Jonny kaplan hit a ball deep to bring in Jones to give the fleet a 3-0 lead.
The Armada wasn't done when Calzado and Bouchie singled to put runners on base. Asif Shah hit a sacrifice fly to bring in a team member to push the lead to 4-0.
Bottom of the fourth Omar Bramasco hit a shot to bring in Brandon Howard to give the Armada a 5-0 lead.
St. George tried to make something happen when they had back to back singles to put themselves on the board with one run.
Jose finished the night giving up only one run, and striking out six, in eight innings of work.
The Armada meet the Road Runners again tomorrow. First pitch scheduled for 7:05 pm. Hope to see everyone out at Blair Field as the Armada look for their fourth win of the second half.
