Mainz Athletics – Heidenheim Heidekoepfe 7-10, 3-4
The Mainz Athletics inaugurated their new ballpark with two losses against the Heidenheim Heidekoepfe, which got some payback for the two 0-1 shutouts from a few weeks ago. In the first game Heidenheim overcame two homeruns by Peter Johannessen and a six-run Mainz rally in the ninth to prevail 10-7. In the second match a problem with the new mound nearly led to the suspension of the game. The Heidekoepfe scored two runs apiece in the last two innings to erase a 0-3 deficit in a 4-3 win. Andrew Smith tied the contest in the ninth with a RBI double and scored the winning run, when the A’s couldn’t field a bunt by Michael Weigl cleanly. Johannessen had driven in two of the three runs for the home team.
