WEEK 3 RECAP
Slammers, Rangers, Redlegs move to 2-0

    The Redlegs eased past the Wild Boars 11-4 at Kettering Field as Camden pitchers combined to strike out 18 batters. Kyle Arend doubled and tripled and drove in 5 runs for the Redlegs, who start the season 2-0 for the first time in franchise history.
    The Rangers rolled to a 16-2 win over the Thunder in the nightcap at Kettering Field. The Rangers took advantage of free passes and tallied 6 runs before they recorded a hit.
