Campbell Picks up 3rd Win in 12-4 Victory


The Redlegs and Kettering Royals met up for a soggy double header on Sunday afternoon at Howell Field in Dayton.

The visiting Redlegs took a commanding lead in the top of the 1st inning. Walks to Jacob Robinson and Jackson Millard put runners on for Kyle Weldon who promptly delivered a ground rule double that hopped the fence in left center field and scored 2 runs. Brandon Howard then singled which moved Weldon over to 3rd, and he then scored on a sacrifice fly from Brad Clark. Matt Morrison would tack on the 4th run of the inning by driving Howard in with a single.

The Royals scraped together a run of their own in the bottom half of the 1st off of Redleg starter Kevin Campbell when Joey Cherry was hit by a pitch to start the inning and scored when Derek Barnhart doubled to left center field.

The Redlegs added to their lead when James Robinson drove a run home in the 3rd with a single.

They put 3 more runs on the board in the 5th, highlighted by a 2-run double off the bat of Brad Clark.

Meanwhile Kevin Campbell settled in after the 1st inning and cruised through the Royals lineup allowing only 2 hits through 5 innings. He fanned 3 Royals hitters on his way to earning his 3rd victory of the season.

Already up 8-1, the Redlegs played add on in the top of the 6th inning. Jared Bradley walked, Greg Pfeiffer was hit by a pitch and Jacob Robinson walked to load up the bases. Bradley would then score on a wild pitch before Jackson Millard doubled home another run. Kyle Weldon then stroked his 2nd double of the game to bring in 2 more runs, bringing the Redleg lead to 12-1.

The Royals tried to break through in the bottom of the 6th off of the Redleg bullpen, starting the inning with 2 hit batters and a single, but a 6-4-3 double play and fly out to left field limited the damage to only 3 runs. Both teams went quietly in the 7th leading to the 12-4 victory for the Redlegs.
