Redlegs Drop Close DH Against Slammers


Fresh off the save in game 1, Beall took the mound in game 2 in opposition to the Redlegs Jesse Jones.  This turned out to be a fantastic pitcher’s duel as both hurlers were absolutely dialed in.  Jones held the mighty Slammer offense to just 4 hits and 2 runs while striking out 3.  Any other day, that would be more than enough to secure a victory.  Camden actually outhit the Slammers 5-4, but just could not push any runs across plate and ended up being blanked by Beall.  Despite the strong outing, Jones took the tough luck loss.  Camden’s hits were recorded by Kyle Arend, Mike Hartman (double), Brad Malott, Evan Koogler, and Eric Jameson. 

Both teams played great defense, but Jones did get some noteworthy help in the 2nd and 3rd innings.  In the 2nd, shortstop Brad Malott was able to track down a pop fly in right field foul territory.  He made a smooth sliding catch to end the inning.  Mike Hartman and Kyle Arend then teamed up to make a beautiful inning ending double play in the 3rd when Mike picked a hard-hit grounder to 3rd, stepped on 3rd base, and fired to Arend at first who made a long stretch and pick out of the dirt that left him on his back. 

The Redlegs (0-4) and Stars (0-4) are set to do battle tomorrow, 5/1/22, at 1:00pm and 4:00pm at Kettering Field in Dayton.
