Carmack Earns 5th Win, Watson Hits 2nd HR in Win


The last time the Redlegs and Machine met in 2016 was way back on opening day and resulted in a 20-12 defeat for the Redlegs. They would make up for it though as they swept the late season double header from the Machine on Sunday July 24th.

The Redlegs sent 2016 All-Star Aaron Carmack to the mound for game 1 and he turned in another fantastic outing, keeping the Machine offense off balance over a complete game effort in which he earned the victory. Carmack allowed 7 hits, fanned 4 batters and allowed 2 earned runs in the start.

The Machine drew first blood as they took a 1-0 lead in the top of the 3rd, but the Redlegs would answer immediately and do most of their damage in the bottom half. After a strikeout to start the inning, Jacob Robinson was plunked by a pitch and Jackson Millard singled. Kyle Arend then hit a sacrifice fly to score Robinson and bring the Redlegs even with the Machine at 1-1. Brandon Howard then walked before Joey Watson blasted a 2-out 3-run bomb to put the Redlegs up 4-1.

The Redlegs tacked on an insurance run in the 4th when Matt Mattice led off the inning with a single and later was driven in on a base hit by Jared Bradley.

Patrick Beyerle homered for the Machine in the 6th, but it wasn’t enough to bring the Machine back as the Redlegs would end up on top 5-2.
