Carmack K's 9, Parks Drives Home 3 in Win


The final meeting between the Camden Redlegs and Kettering Royals of the 2017 regular season resulted in a split double header at Madison High School on Sunday.

Game 1 began with the Redlegs jumping out to an early lead in the top of the 1st. Kyle Arend reached on a fielder’s choice. With 2 outs and no one on, Kyle stole 2nd and then cruised around to score on an overthrow. The Royals took the lead right back in the bottom half thanks to RBIs from Zane Vogelsang and Blake Kendig.

It was all Redlegs from there though as they re-took the lead in the top of the 2nd and would not trail again in the game. Adam Parks smoked a line drive out into right field to start the inning but it was tracked down by teammate Tim Sullivan as he was manning right field for the Royals as their 9th player was en route to the field. James Robinson, James Gross, and Jared Bradley then all singled with one out to load the bases. Redman then grounded into a fielder’s choice to score Robinson, but was able to beat out the double play attempt. Redman then stole 2nd, which allowed Adam Parks (running for the catcher Gross) to take home on the throw. Matt Morrison then added an RBI single to finish up the scoring and leave the Redlegs with a 4-2 lead.

Kyle Arend singled followed by a double from Mike Hartman to start the 3rd inning. Adam Parks then hit a sacrifice fly, which scored Arend and moved Hartman to third. James Robinson then placed a ground ball to the right side of the infield to score Hartman.

After a quiet 4th, Matt Mattice started the top of the 5th with a single, stole 2nd and eventually scored on a sacrifice fly by Mike Hartman.

Trailing 7-2, the Royals scraped a run together in the top of the 6th to inch a bit closer as they pulled to within 4 runs. However, The Redlegs answered again, this time with 3 runs in the top of the 7th. With one out, Jacob Robinson singled and stole 2nd base. Kyle Arend later knocked Robinson in with a 2 out single. Mike Hartman then kept the inning alive with a base hit before Adam Parks tripled both runners home.

Meanwhile, Aaron Carmack had been dealing for the Redlegs defense. Carmack went 6 innings and allowed only 3 runs while striking out 9 Royals. He now stands at 2-1 with a shiny 3.27 ERA on the season.

Matt Mattice took over in the 7th and allowed only 1 Royals baserunner as he put the win in the books with a quiet finish.
