Redlegs Blow Early Lead, Fall 13-10

07/17/2017
 

Game 2 turned out to be a close game as well, but in a different way. Rather than runs coming at a premium, this one turned into an offensive shootout as the teams combined for 26 hits and 23 runs.

The Redlegs looked primed to sweep the double header as they jumped ahead 7-2 after the first 4 innings. In the 2nd Mike Hartman started the inning with a triple and then scored on a passed ball. Adam Parks and James Robinson then both worked walks followed by an RBI single by Ryan Gross and a 2-run single by Matt Redman. They then scored 2 ore in the top of the 3rd on a 2 out rally started by a single by Ryan Gross and a walk by Matt Redman. Matt Morrison then doubled home both runs to give the Redlegs a 6-0 advantage.

The Boars then chipped away in the bottom of the 3rd, plating 2 runs highlighted by a solo home run from Billy Sweatt.

The Redlegs got one back in the top of the 4th when Adam Parks hit a sacrifice fly to score Matt Mattice who had singled earlier in the inning.

However, thatís when the wheels fell off. The Wild Boars roared to life and scored 11 runs in the final 2 frames to take a commanding 13-7 lead. The Redlegs were able to start a rally in the 7th, highlighted by a 2-run single by Brandon Howard, but otherwise the Boars were able to stave off the comeback and hold on for the victory.
