Carmack Tosses Shutout, Redman Delivers Walk-Off


In game 1 of the July 16th double header against the Wild Boars, the Redlegs were part of a 1-0 game for the 2nd time this season. Previously on the losing end against the South Dayton Slammers back in June, this time they would prevail in walk off fashion. Before this season, the Redlegs had never been on either end of a 1-0 game.

Aaron Carmack turned in another great outing as he outdueled Joseph Wilson of the Boars to earn the win. Carmack went the distance, tossing all 7 innings allowing only 5 hits while striking out 5 Boars batters. It was also his 2nd career complete game shutout.

Carmack had some noteworthy defense behind him as the Redlegs backed him up with solid defense all day long. In the 2nd inning, Matt Redman ranged deep to his left at 2nd base and fielded a grounder at the edge of the outfield grass before performing a perfect pirouette and throw to get the runner by a step, which ended up helping to strand two runners in the inning. Kyle Arend made a great sliding catch near the foul line to take a hit away from Zach Carroll in left field in the 3rd. Later in the top of the 7th with 2 outs, Mike Hartman charged in on a slow grounder and made the barehanded pick and running throw to nail Joe Cantrell and prevent any possible rally.

With the offense quiet for most of the game, James Robinson sparked the rally that eventually led to the win. James singled with one out and Ryan Gross walked moving James up to 2nd. Matt Redman then hit a line drive to centerfield and Robinson was able to turn on the burners and slide into home, beating the throw and sealing off the victory.
