Admirals Series Highlights for Friday, June 1
The Admirals celebrated their 2017 PacPro title on Thursday night with a ring and banner ceremony, and the acknowledgment of returning players, coaches, and staff. PJ Phillips received his Co-Manager of the Year plaque, and Tillman Pugh and Chris Fornaci received nods for their individual postseason awards.
Then, on Opening Night, the Admirals defeated Pittsburg 15-3. Graylin Derke (4-4, 2 RBI, 3 R), Nick Akins (3-5, 2 RBI, 2 R) and David Kiriakos (2-6, HR, 3B, RBI, 3 R) spearheaded the offense, and in his Vallejo debut, starter Martin Cronin picked up the win (5.2 IP, 2 ER, 5 K). Harold Myles, Cage Cascone, and Grayson Weber combined on 3.1 innings of scoreless relief. Vlad Gomez contributed the defensive gem of the night with an acrobatic catch in center field, shown above.
