Robinson Goes Deep While Carmack Cruises to Win

06/12/2018
 

The 3rd place Redlegs squared off against the 2nd place South Dayton Slammers on Sunday and, as has happened so many times in the past, the two teams appeared evenly matched and each walked away with a win in a double header split.

Matt Redman set a nice tone for the Redlegs defense right away in the bottom of the first when Slammers leadoff man Dan Barhorst ripped a line drive to Redmanís left that he was able to snare on a diving effort. The Redlegs then took a lead in the top of the second inning that they would not relinquish through the remainder of the game. Jacob Robinson hit a one out double to get things started, Matt Redman was then plunked, and Ethan Limon singled to load the bases. Ryan Gross then delivered an RBI base hit and Jared Bradley drove a run home while reaching on an error. Matt Morrison then brought another run home on a ground ball out.

Meanwhile Aaron Carmack got off to a great start for the Redlegs, retiring the side in order in the 1st while recording his 150th career strikeout. Dan Barhorst singled to start the 2nd but was quickly wiped away on a Redleg double play before Carmack punched out the next batter to end the inning.

Matt Redman scored in the top of the 4th when he singled and stole 2nd to start the inning and eventually scored on Slammers double play.

Leading 4-0, the Barhorst brothers got to Carmack in the bottom of the 4th. Dan Barhorst singled leading off the inning before Carmack recorded a strike out and a ground ball out. Todd Barhorst then did most of the Slammers damage by bopping his league leading fourth home run of the year.

The Slammers then edged closer in the bottom of the 5th when John Bissman doubled and eventually scored on a wild pitch.

The Redlegs then piled on six runs in the 6th and 7th frames to give Carmack plenty of breathing room. James Robinson reached on an error with one out in the 6th before Jacob Robinson slashed his first homerun since April of 2016. In the 7th, Kyle Arend reached on an error and eventually scored on a passed ball. Nick Davis added a 2-run single, scoring Matt Morrison who walked and Adam Parks who was hit by a pitch.

Carmack finished things off quietly to earn his second win of the season. He scattered five hits over 7 innings while striking out six while holding the potent Slammers offense to just three runs. His complete game effort was his second in as many starts.
