Redlegs Bounce Back in Big Win Over Royals


The Redlegs met up with the Royals for an early 10am start at Carleton Davidson stadium in Springfield this weekend and things looked bleak early on.

Redlegs ace Aaron Carmack got off to a bit of a sleepy start but was quickly awoken by the Royals first 5 hitters recording hits and before the Redlegs could blink the Royals had a 5-0 lead.

Trailing early with Carmack on the mound put Camden’s offense in an unusual spot, but they responded by scoring 20 unanswered runs en route to a 20-5 run-rule victory. After the first inning, Carmack tossed 4 straight scoreless, racking up 8 strike outs and only 1 base runner. Kevin Campbell added a perfect 6th inning, striking out two in his 2nd pitching appearance of the season.

Brandon Howard led the offense going 3-3 with a vintage towering blast that sailed over the left field fence. Howard drove in 4 in the game. Ryan Gross added 3 hits and 3 RBI, Joey Watson also had 3 hits and a couple of runs batted in. Jared Bradley and Adam Parks each added 2 hits and 2 RBI, Parks also swiped 3 bags in the game. Aaron Carmack doesn’t often swing the bat, but as the Redlegs were light on players at game time he stepped up to the plate and tried to help himself out with the stick. He did just that, going 2-3 with a triple and 2 runs scored.

The Redlegs now stand in 3rd place at 13-7 with a double header matchup looming against the Dayton Rangers (12-9).
