Redman Remains Perfect, Improves to 4-0

07/07/2014
 

Matt Redman took the mound in game 2 looking to improve upon his 3-0 start in 2014 and he did just that. Redman cruised through 6 innings of work where he allowed only 5 hits, struck out 5, and allowed only 2 runs both of which were unearned.

The Braves struck first again in the nightcap, this time putting up 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st. But the Redleg offense rallied once again. Just like in game 1, the Brave lead would last for only a half an inning. The Redlegs scored 4 times in the top of the 2nd and twice more in the 3rd. The 2nd started with walks to James Robinson and Matt Morrison and then a single by Matt Mattice to load the bases. Game 1 starter Zach Carroll then delivered a bases clearing triple into the right center gap to give his team the lead. Carroll would later be singled in by Jacob Robinson to make it a 4-2 game. In the 2nd, Brandon Howard took a free pass to 1st and rolled all the way around to score on a double by Brad Clark. Clark would then score on a single from James Robinson.

The Redlegs played add on in the 5th. Brad Clark, the cleat less wonder, would lead off with a single and later score his 6th run on the day when he took home on a fielderís choice. One more run would score in the 7th when Jared Bradley drove in James Robinson who had drawn his 3rd walk in the game to start the inning.

Robinson then elected to lift Redman and give the 7th to Kyle Arend for his MVABL debut on the mound. The heart of the Brave order spoiled Arendís appearance however. The Braves put together 4 hits and a walk, highlighted by 1st overall draft pick Ryan Schlaterís 2 run double. With the score at 9-5 and a runner on Brad Clark came on to put out the fire. Dylan Wittman greeted Clark by muscling a single over short stop to allow Schlater to score. Clark then settled in and punched out the next two batters to end the game at a final tally of 9-6.
