Rolling Ravens keep heat on Manchester

(Continued)

Schaefer gave up four hits, issued two walks and struck out six in the win.

“He is going all out every outing this year, and we felt confident behind him,” said Pressley. “He’s gotten ahead of guys and really commanded the baseball. He’s just been outstanding.”

The Ravens’ momentum continued in Game 2 as Blake Hall pitched seven strong innings and the Ravens scored four runs in the third to open a 5-0 lead.

Eiler drove in Hufferd with a single in the second to open the scoring, and the first four batters scored in the third as Anderson showed great balance from top to bottom in the order.

Shelmadine drove a double to center to score Craft, and Hufferd and chased starter Gino Chumas. Chip Hockenbury came in and sent down the next three batters in order to finish the threat.

Hockenbury did a solid job in relief, sending the Ravens down in order three times in the final five at-bats. Heberling hit a double in the seventh, and Craft knocked him in with a single to account for the only run scored off of Hockenbury.

But the damage had been done, and Hall was in control. He scattered six hits in seven innings, striking out five and issuing one walk.

“Hall and Dotson (Friday night’s starter) bounced back from probably the worst outings of their careers last weekend,” said Pressley. “To come out and get wins, we are really proud of them.”

Heberling led the hit parade for the Ravens, finishing with four combined hits and five total RBIs. The Ravens had several players with three hits, including Eiler who hit eighth in the order.

“It’s exactly what we want,” said Pressley. “Top to bottom, to have threats and to have guys stepping up when maybe another guy is not seeing the ball well has been big.”

  • SPT - HB0726 - Mathis - Colts Camp day two 101 Mathis getting lighter workload as Colts get creative

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

  • SPT - HB0725 - Colts Camp - 007 CB Darius Butler holds tight to No. 20 The number 20 has grown to mean something to Darius Butler. The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
