Entering post season play the Challengers are playing for table position and this weekend we played a double header against the Dulliken Truck Stars. A strong Challengers line up played well and delivered a 13-1 victory in the opening game and followed that up with an 11-4 win in the nightcap.
The Challengers welcome two new team mates who helped us win on the day. A hearty welcome to Andreas Rüdisühli and Louis Russo.
There was lots of hitting and scoring done but the biggest bats on the day were Michael Iacono who was 7-for-7 with 3 runs scored and 3 doubles and Sebastian Bonger who was 3-for-4 with 6 runs scored and 2 RBI’s. Several others contributed with great games as well including Tobias Haynor who was 3-for-7 with 2 Runs and 3 RBI’s, Marc Tsukroff was 2-for-5 with 2 runs and 2 RBI’s, Jake Namovich was 3-for-4 with 3 runs and 1 RBI, and Tobias Bonger who was 3-for-4 with 1 run and 2 RBI’s. For the new comers – Andreas Rüdisühli was 3-for-5 with 1 run and 3 RBI’s, and Louis Russo was 1-for-2 with 3 runs and 1 RBI. All in all, lots of people had great days at the plate.
On the mound, Jake Namovich pitched a complete game gem in the opening game giving up only 1 run on 4 hits and striking out five. In the second game Seb Bonger pitched 3 scoreless innings giving up only 1 hit and striking out 3. Marc Tsukroff closed out the second game.
Congratulations to the Challengers on a very nice weekend outcome.
