C’s lose twice to Eagles

The Challengers were downed by the Luzern Eagles on Sunday, April 13, as the Eagles swept the C's winning 11-4 and 11-9. The games were overshadowed by an injury of second baseman Eidrys Reyes in Game 2. Running for a blooper Reyes and right fielder Carlos Nepomuceno collided heavily. Reyes broke down and had to be taken to the hospital with a strong suspicion of concussion. The game continued after a 1 hour injury delay with the Eagles tying the game first and eventually walking away with an 11-9 win in extra-innings – more than eight hours after the first pitch of the day.

 

The Eagles already took Game 1, as they immediately arrived on the scoreboard scoring twice in the first frame against starter Ryan Byrne and erasing the lead to 5-1 after four innings. The C's stranded runners on third three times, while the Eagles added three runs in the eight and ninth innings delivering a total of six extra-base hits to make it 11-1 and eventually winning 11-4. The C's have now a 1-3 record after losing three in-a-row. They face next the Zürich Lions on May 3 at the Heerenschürli ballpark.
