The Challengers lost a fantastic game 2-3 in the bottom of the eleventh inning. The team of playing coach Clayton Carson was behind for the most part of the game, as Carlos Nepomuceno tied the game at 2-2 with a pinch-hit RBI-single in the top of the eighth inning. The Barracudas came close in the tenth frame, but pitcher Tobias Siegrist worked in and out of trouble. But the Barracudas walked away in the eleventh, as Hasson Rogers delivered a two-out infield single to make it 3-2. Game 2 will take place on Sunday, August 30 at 2 pm at the Heerenschürli ballpark.
