Redlegs Stunned by Machine in Opening Round


Game two started off good for the Redlegs as Jacob Robinson drew a leadoff walk and would later score on a single by Mike Hartman. They scored again in the 2nd when Jesse Jones singled to start the frame and came around to score on a sacrifice fly by Cody Saraco-Polner.

Tyler Eaton started for the Redlegs and tossed scoreless frames in the 1st and 2nd, aided by a 6-4-3 double play from Malott to Jones to Robinson in the 2nd. The Machine were able to push two runs across in the 3rd though to tie the game at 2.

The Redleg offense seemed to be a bit snake bitten as they continued to hit right into the teeth of the Machine defense, and they proved to be up to the task as they continued to make play after play keeping Camden off the scoreboard. The Redlegs struck out only 1 time in the nightcap but left a total of 7 men on base.

The final blow was struck in the top of the 7th when Jake Banks led off with a single and would later score the go- ahead run when Zachary Seagraves doubled him in.

All in all, Eatonís outing was a positive one, allowing 8 hits on 3 strikeouts in 7 innings of work, but he would take the tough luck loss as the offense just couldnít generate enough support. Eaton went 2-3 at the plate, Jesse Jones went a perfect 3 for 3 with a run and a stolen base, and Jacob Robinson doubled, walked, and scored a run to highlight the Redleg offense.
