Redlegs Split With Indians; Improve to 15-11


In game two Taylor Guntle (5-0) took the hill seeking his 6th win of the season. He was opposed by the Tribes' Matt Coleman (3-4). The Redlegs could not find an answer for Coleman when they last faced each other way back on April 25th. The Redlegs held a 12 run advantage, scoring 12 runs in the first three innings. But Coleman shut the Redlegs down for the final four as the Indians were able to come back and take the win.

Sunday would mark a different outcome for the Redlegs as they found an answer to the Indians starter. The Redlegs again started out strong in the first, scoring 5 times in the frame. Robinson led off with a walk, Clark later doubled and John Long was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Taylor Guntle then blasted the first grand slam in Redlegs history to give the team a 4-0 lead. Brian Kuhbander was then hit by a pitch and Kevin Campbell singled and stole second, and both scored on a double from Kevin Schaeffer. The Indians scored once in the bottom half as Reston Wilson struck again, driving in Donnie Black who doubled to start the frame. The score held at 6-1 until the top of the fourth inning when the Redlegs struck for 5 more, extending their lead to 11-1. Schaeffer led the inning off with a single, followed by a single from Robinson. Brad Clark and John Long each singled driving in a run each, and Kuhbander later singled both Clark and Long in. Brandon Howard then brought one in with a double to finish off the scoring.

Guntle continued to cruise, giving up no more runs until the 6th where he gave up only one more. Guntle went 6 innings, striking out 4 and allowed 7 hits en route to his 6th win of the season.
