The Challengers swept the red-hot Embrach Mustangs by taking both games of Saturday’s doubleheader.
In Game 1, Tobias Siegrist went the distance for his fourth win of the season, limiting the Mustangs to only seven hits in a 5-2 victory. He also went 4-for-4 at the plate with a game-high two runs scored.
In the second contest, Siegrist started again and lasted 5 1-3 innings, giving up four runs on five hits. The win came in the Challengers’ final at-bat as Jesus Martinez lifted a high fly ball to center field, which Harry Wischnewski lost in the sun, enabling Siegrist to score the winning run for a 5-4 win. Carlos Peña went 4-for-4 with two singles, a double and a triple, and Brian Hipps was credited with his first win of the season.
