The U15 Cadets won twice against the Hünenberg Unicorns in Embrach on Saturday. While the first game was a true thriller, game two had only one direction.
In the first game the guests from Central Switzerland got off to a better start. They took a 5-0 lead in the first two innings. The Challengers also clocked in with a little delay and subsequently ensured an exciting course of the game. Philip Louis brought home the first Challengers run in the bottom half of the second inning, scored the second run and turned the game around with a three-run in-the-park home run in the third inning to make it 6-5. Jordi Bucher answered the Unicorns’ equalization in the fourth inning with the go-ahead run and with an RBI double, Fabrizio Bucher brought Noam Müller home to make it 8-6. After that the Unicorns were only able to reduce the lead to 7-8, but couldn’t equalize anymore. Noam Müller got the win, Philip Louis the save.
In the second game the Challengers were in control from the start. After two innings, the scoreboard showed the maximum possible margin of 10-0 according to the rules. In the end the Challengers won 14-2. Philip Louis again led the way with three hits and three runs, while Jasper Freigang and Fabrice Cadalbert each contributed two hits and two RBIs to the win.
