Carmack Cruises in Game 1 Win


The Redlegs and Knights squared off in the first round of the 2020 MVABL playoffs and turned in a closely contested series in which Camden eventually emerged victorious after 3 games. The final series scoring was nearly dead even, as Camden combined for a total of 14 runs compared to the Knights 13.

Games one and two were almost perfect opposites of each other. The Redlegs emerged victorious in a 5-1 win in game one while the Knights returned the favor winning by a final tally of 5-0 in game two. As the score suggested each team dominated in their respective wins on Saturday.

Camden got things started in the 2nd inning when they put two runs on the board. Saige Micomonaco singled and stole 2nd to start the frame. Joey Watson then walked. Saige would score on a passed ball while Watson would be driven in with a sacrifice fly by Brad Malott. Matt Morrison drove in Camden’s 3rd run in the 3rd inning, scoring Jesse Jones who had worked a walk to begin the frame. Brad Malott added another sacrifice fly in the 4th while another run scored on a Knights fielding miscue.

Aaron Carmack was comfortable with the 5-run lead as he continued to deal to the strong Knights offense. Carmack piled up 9 strikeouts on the afternoon while allowing just 4 hits to improve his career post season record to 6-2. It also marked his 4th complete game in his playoff career.

The Knights were able to scrape together a run in the 6th inning, but Carmack recorded two punchouts and a groundout in the 7th to end the game quietly.
