Glass Powers Indians Past Redlegs with 2 Home Runs


The Redlegs and Indians met up for their only matchup in the 2014 regular season on Sunday in a double header at Miami Middletown’s field in Monroe. The Indians controlled the first game from the start, and ended up cruising to an 8-2 win behind two blasts from Brennen Glass.

The Redlegs couldn’t muster much offense support behind starter Colby Clark. Clark’s first start a Redleg ended after 6 innings, he struck out 6 and ended up taking the loss. Zach Carroll pitched a scoreless 7th in relief.

The Indians put 2 runs on the board in the first when Glass launched his first homerun of the day for the tribe and they began to threaten early in the 2nd as well. After a leadoff single, Matt Redman made a nice sliding catch in center to make the first out before Clark notched a strikeout and a groundout to short to end the frame. But in the 3rd Glass struck again, launching one over the center field fence to advance the lead to 4-0. After a ground out, the next runner reached on a single and advanced to 2nd on a throwing error, but was quickly cut down when Matt Mattice gunned him down trying to take 3rd on a pop fly single into left by the next batter. But another error allowed a 2nd Indians base runner to get on base and extend the inning, which set up a 2 run single from Jacob Underwood. Colby then allowed only 4 more hits over the next 3 innings, getting a little help from Jared Bradley in right. As he seems to do week in and week out, Jared made another diving grab when tracking a fly ball straight back toward the right field fence and snagging the ball over his shoulder to take away what would certainly have been a triple.

The Redlegs managed just 4 hits in the game, one from Kyle Arend, two from Brandon Howard, and one from Brad Clark.
