Challengers against Dornbirn without a chance

After the Challengers’ first victory in the tournament against the representative from Ukraine, there was nothing to do for them against the Dornbirn Indians. The Challengers have been defeated by 16-1.

The highlight from the Challenger’s point of view came in the first inning. Leonel Sosa Marte opened the score with a solo home run. However, this remained the only positive note of the game for the Swiss runner-up. Dornbirn immediately countered with five runs.
