The Challengers did what they had to do on Sunday, August 25, as they swept the Wil Devils in a day-night double header at Wil. Being tied for fourth place with the Zürich Barracudas, the C's absolutely had to win twice against the Devils to move one game ahead of their local rivals in the battle for the last playoff spot with two games remaining.
Game 1 was all Challengers, as they cruised to a 12-0 shutout victory over the Devils. Andrea Girasole tossed a completed game for his third win of the season, while Robert Sedin collected six RBI's. And the C's stayed focused also in Game 2, as they added a 15-6 win. Sedin recorded his sixth win of the season, while Thomas Blank led the offense going 4-for-5.
The Challengers will travel to Therwil on Saturday, August 31 to face the Flyers for their last two games of the round robin.
