Slammers Edge Redlegs in Epic Pitchers Duel


The Redlegs met up with the 1st place Slammers at Bellbrook High School and turned in two customarily close games, though the Slammers used late rallies to notch two come from behind wins and take the season series winning 3 games out of 4.

Game 1 featured two of the best pitchers in the league squaring off in the Slammers Jeff Beal and the Redlegs Aaron Carmack. The two lived up to the hype, as neither team was able to score through the first 3 innings. Carmack got a little help from his catcher Joey Watson in the first inning as Slammers speedster Dan Barhorst singled to start the game, but Watson erased Barhorst on a steal attempt at 2nd base.

The Redlegs were finally able to break through on Beal in the bottom of the fourth. Mike Hartman started the inning with a single and later came around to score on a base hit by Brandon Howard.

Meanwhile Carmack kept right on cruising, blanking the Slammers through the first 5 innings.

Trailing 1-0 in the top of the 6th, the Slammers finally broke through. Scoring 4 times to take a 4-1 lead. They added an insurance run in the 7th making it 5-1. That was all the run support Beal would need as he sat down the final 9 Redleg batters of the game.
