The Montgomery County Cardinals easily dispatched the Ottawa A's Saturday, taking two run-rule victories 10-2 (5 innings) and 16-3 (4 innings).
Montgomery County's offense was seemingly unstoppable, with the Cardinals taking 5-0 leads after the first inning in both games. Errors by Ottawa were punished with follow-up hits, and although Ottawa would find a run here and there, those leads were never in any danger. Shawn Sutton picked up 6 RBIs on 3-3 hitting in the second game, including an officially scored inside-the-park home run that gave the Cardinals a 9-0 lead after two innings.
Aaron Rutherford took the win in the first game, while Matthew Redden was the winning pitcher for the second game. Montgomery County and Ottawa will play two more games on Sunday in Ottawa. The series will start at 6 pm, with the broadcast being held as always on Sonshine 98.9, KQQF.
