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 - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Corner - HB Colts Notes: Thomas, Hilton hurt in Wednesday's practice After a physical practice Wednesday afternoon at Anderson University, the Indianapolis Colts are hoping they have not lost another starter. Left guard Donald Thomas hit the ground following an 11-on-11 running drill and was visibly upset when he finally was helped to his feet. He threw his mouthguard away in anger and attempted to walk off the injury with trainers away from the rest of his teammates.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
