Redlegs Fall Flat

06/01/2011
 

The Redlegs took on the newly founded Miami Valley Fusion on Sunday in game 2 of a split double header. In game 1, The Fusion took on the Miami Valley Thunder and pounded out 16 runs in a lopsided victory. An undermanned Redleg team didnít fare much better, as the Fusion ran away with the game and eventually won 20-4. The Redlegs offense was silenced by the Fusion pitching staff, getting only 4 hits on the afternoon. The defense performed just as poorly as 9 errors were committed on the afternoon, a franchise record for errors committed in a single game.

Jacob Robinsonís 19 game hitting streak that has stretched since the middle of last season came to an end as he was unable to record a hit. Matt Mattice increased his hit streak to 7 games, one short of his career high. John Long recorded the only RBI on the day, a sacrifice fly in the 3rd inning which scored Robinson. Brad Clark had a hit and scored 2 runs on the day.

The Redlegs will look to rebound against the Beavercreek Sox tonight at 8:30pm at Rotary Park. The Sox took 3 of 4 from the Redlegs last season, and this is their first game of the 2011 season.
