The Challengers stopped their three game losing-streak with an easy 14-1 win over the Zürich Lions on Saturday, May 3, but it wasn't an easy game day at all. The start of the double header has been delayed twice due to rain for a total of three hours. Instead of a double header only a single game was played.
The C's opened the game with a single from Eidrys Reyes and scored twice in the first inning. And they never looked back en route to a 14-1 victory. Starter Harry Bregy gave up only one earned run in the bottom of the first inning, but that was all Bregy and the bullpen allowed, as Thomas Burger and Ryan Byrne added three scoreless innings of relief. Head coach Chris Palatinus was pleased with the performance. "The guys did, what I wanted them to do. It's never easy to stay focused with the freezing weather and the delays, especially when you have a big lead", Palatinus said. The C's are now tied for fourth palce with a 2-3 record. No make-up date has been announced so far for Game 2 of the double header.
