Ben Fox pitched a terrific game, but picked up his fifth loss as the Armada fall to the St. George Road Runners 2-0, and loose this series 2-1. The Fleet is now 3-7 in the second half of the GBL season.
St. George was on top of the Armada in the third inning, when Henry Calderon hit a double and was able to move to third base after a sacrifice bunt. Rudy Yan singled up to the middle to give the Road Runners a 1-0 lead.
St. George scored again in the fifth inning when Calderon once again came through for his team when he was brought in off the RBI single from Yosvany Almario. That gave the Road Runners a 2-0 lead.
In the bottom of the ninth the Armada looked to see if they could get a miracle, but David Seccombe was too much for the Fleet tonight, as he closed the game giving the Fleet the loss.
The Armada will have the weekend off to regroup and come prepared for the Yuma Scorpions on Tuesday right here at Blair Field. First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 pm. Have a good weekend Armada fans, and hope to see everyone out at Blair Field on Tuesday.
