In a rematch of the 2018 championship, the Redlegs and Slammers met up for a 9 inning affair to open up the 2019 MVABL season.
Unfortunately, the Redlegs were still unable to solve Jeff Beall as they could only muster 8 hits and one run against the Slammers ace. Beal was able to strand 7 Redleg runners in his 8 inning outing.
The Redlegs got on the board in 6th inning when newcomer Bradley Malott notched his first career hit with a one-out single and later scored on a Slammers throwing error. Adam Parks then tried to spark a rally by working a lead-off walk in the top of the 9th with the Redlegs trailing 7-1. He did later score on a ground ball out by Jacob Robinson, but that would be the end of the comeback attempt.
Redlegs pitchers Aaron Carmack and Michael Cookson started the season off on a strong note as each tossed 4 innings and allowed two earned runs each against the potent Slammer offense. Cookson racked up 7 strikeouts in relief in his Redlegs debut.
The Redlegs will look to get in the win column next week (4/14) in a matchup with the Dayton Cardinals at Gastineau Field at 4:00pm.
