Redlegs Fight Back to .500 Again


The Camden Redlegs fought their way back to .500 this weekend after taking both games of a double header against divisional foe, and fellow expansion club, the Miami Valley Cardinals.

Brian Kuhbander took the hill for the Redlegs in game one and turned in a gem, going the distance giving up 3 runs (none being earned) and striking out 5. The Cardinals took an early lead on RBI singles from Aaron Thacker and Jonathan Teague in the first, and an RBI single from Josh Jaynes in the 2nd. Kuhbander then settled down and allowed only 3 hits to the Cardinals over the final five frames. The Redlegs began their scoring in the 3rd inning. Robinson, Mattice, and Clark led the inning off with walks to quickly load the bases. After a strikeout, Brian Kuhbander hit a ball just inches shy of what would have been his first grand slam but settled for a 2 RBI double. Cardinalís starter Tyler Ott got out of the jam by striking out the next two Redleg batters. The Redlegs then took the lead in the 5th inning off of reliever William Howard. Clark and Howard both singled in succession with 1 out, Clark later scored on a passed ball. John Long then drove Howard in on a fielderís choice which turned out to be the winning run of the ball game.

Highlights: Brad Clark 2-2, 2B, BB, R. Brian Kuhbander 1-2, 2 RBI, 2B, BB
