Cardinals eliminate Challengers

The Challengers didn't find a solution against Patrick Lawson and the Bern Cardinals again. Looking to even things up, the C's lost Game 4 on Saturday, October 5 by a score of 1-10 what resulted in their elimination. The Cardinals advanced to the finals winning the best-of-five series 3-1. They will face either the Therwil Flyers or the Embrach Mustangs, as their series is heading into Game 5.


Lawson carried a perfect game into the fifth inning. He retired the first 13 batters before Tobias Siegrist grounded a single into right field. Still it was a one run game after six innings with the Cards leading 1-0. They opened the score in the first frame, as Johnny Perigo drove in Sammy Paulino with a two-out single. Both teams exchanged zeros on the scoreboard until the seventh inning when Challengers starter Robert Sedin lost control. He loaded the bases with a walk, a hit batter, a sac bunt and an intentional walk, but didn't manage to get out of the jam. Two bases-loaded walks gave the Cards a 3-0 lead, who extended the gap with a two-run single and a two run triple. They scored nine runs to make it 10-0 before the C's made it out of the inning. As in 2012, the Challengers' season ends in the semi-finals against the Cardinals.
