Scouts Hand Redlegs Their First Loss


The Redlegs traveled to the home turf of the Xenia Scouts on Sunday for a scorching double header at Athletes in Action Sports Complex. Camden put their unbeaten record on the line in their first matchup with the expansion Scouts, and Xenia would prove to be up for the challenge.

Michael Cookson, fresh off his 2nd career no-hitter, was sent to the mound to tangle with Scouts skipper Ryan MacFarlane in game 1. Each pitcher put up nothing but zeros through the first four innings before the Scouts finally broke through in the 5th. They added a run in the 6th, and 2 more in the 7th which would prove to be the only runs in the contest. Cookson turned in a solid outing, striking out 9 and allowed just 7 hits on the afternoon, but he would end up being saddled with the loss as Camden’s offense simply could not get anything going against MacFarlane. The Redlegs wound up with only 4 hits in the game. Brandon Howard doubled and Jacob Robinson, Mike Hartman, and Matt Mattice each singled.
