Machine Keep Redlegs Offense Down as They Sweep DH

07/02/2015
 

After only scrounging up 5 hits in game 1, the Redlegs offense remained cold and was only able to pick up 5 more hits in game 2.

The Redlegs didnít break into the run column in this one until the 4th inning. Brandon Howard doubled with one out and Brad Clark walked. After a strikeout Kyle Weldon, who made his season debut in game 1, slashed a 2 out double that clanged off of the fence in left center field which brought a run home. Clark would then score on a passed ball. Mike Hartman would pick up the only other Redleg RBI in the 7th inning when he knocked in Kyle Arend who had walked leading off the inning.

Continuing on with great plays in the outfield, Kyle Arend made a terrific diving catch on a fly ball in foul territory that he had to cover a ton of ground to get to. The catch ended the 5th inning stranding two runners on base.
