Recaps: Blue Bats back on winning track – Tigers conquer Kufstein – Rain swamps Gramastetten again

News - Austrian Baseball Leagues Comments Off on Recaps: Blue Bats back on winning track – Tigers conquer Kufstein – Rain swamps Gramastetten again

Saturday:

Vienna Metrostars @ Rico Highlanders

Due to an unplayable field thanks to the rain, the games had to be postponed.

Sunday:

Soroptimist Stockerauer Cubs @ Schwechat Blue Bats

In the Lower Austrian derby between the Cubs and the Bats, Daniel Jahn started on the mound for the Schwechat team. With good control and capitalizing on his experience, Jahn kept the opponents in check for the whole game. For the guests, Michael Schneider also put forward a good performance on the mound. Arian Quirantes showed off his swing in a good day at the plate: a home run and a double helped build a 9-1 lead as the hosts cruised to a victory.

Game 2, imports Zalabai and Holstein looked to swing the game in their respective teams favor from the mound. Both teams started with focus, but it was the Blue Bats who struck first, taking advantage of the Stockerau mistakes on defense. Zalabai found his way back to the form he’s been demonstrating often this year, and besides a homer from Scott Holstein, didn’t give up another hit. The Bats completed the sweep with a 5-1 win.

Schwaz Tigers @ Kufstein Vikings

The depleted Vikings have been focused in over the past weeks. Thomas Krimbacher was charged with shutting down the Schwaz bats in Game 1, but holes in the defense allowed the guests to jump out to a lead and they never gave it back. Peter Nagiller closed out the game to give Schwaz the 16-10 win on the road.

In Game 2Bernie Eidherr returned from a longer sabbatical to make an appearance on the hill for the Vikings. Needing some offensive support from his teammates, they were unable to get anything going against a strong Jason Fronczak. Even the Tigers offense packed a tougher punch this week, with clutch hitting reducing the number of LOB in comparison to the week before, and they rode it to a 6-1 win.

European Cup:

The Vienna Wanderers and the Attnang-Puchheim Athletics are representing Austria this week in the European Cup Qualifier. The Wanderers head to France, Montpellier to be exact, while the Athletics will host their own group just as they did in 2009.
