Ben Fox pitched another great game as he helped lead the Fleet to a 3-2 win over the visiting Yuma Scorpions. Fox picked up his fifth win of the season. The Armada are now 10-13 in the second half, 30-31 overall.
The Fleet came out early in the bottom of the second inning, taking a 1-0 lead over the Scorpions. Matt Edgecombe with a soft hit was able to reach third off a three base throwing error from Jose Mosquera. Andy Bouchie brought in Edgecombe to give the Armada a 1-0 lead.
The Scorpions then responded with back to back singles from Jose Mosquera and Jonathan Lozada out runners on base. A sac bunt from Rivadeneira put runners on second and third base. Adolfo Gomez brought in both runners to give Yuma a 2-1 lead over the Fleet.
The Armada was able to regain the lead when Omar Bramasco and Steve Moss led the inning with back to back walks. Matt Edgecombe came through with a base hit deep into left field which brought in Omar to tie the ball game at two. A wild pitch from reliever pitcher Dorian Castro got away from Mosquera and brought in Steve Moss to give the Armada a 3-2 lead. The Scorpions tried to respond but the Armada handed them the loss.
