The Admirals extended their District 4AAA win streak with a 13-3 victory over the visiting William Blount Governors tonight. Patrick Raby tossed a 3-hitter at the Govs, striking out 9 in 5 innings of work. Chris Hutson pitched a perfect 6th inning to close it out, with only 1 pitch over the minimum.
Nick Senzel carried the heavy lumber for the Ads, blasting a double, 2-run homer, and a triple and scored 3 times. Jammer Strickland was not far behind, with 3 hits in his first 3 at-bats, one a double.
It was Senior Night, as the Admirals paid tribute to the Seniors playing their final year of Admiral Baseball – Jordan Newby, AJ Simcox, Xander Taylor, and Nick Poma (best manager EVER!)
The Ads scored in every inning except the 5th, in the run-rule affair. The big inning was the 3rd, as the Ads sent 11 men to the plate, scoring 8 runs. Nick’s double and homer were the key blows.
The Ads host the Catholic Fighting Irish on Wednesday in Armed Forces Night at the Ballpark of Farragut.
