Challengers one win away from Finals

With a convincing 14-3 win over the Jona Bandits, the Challengers are just one win away from a possible all-Zurich Finals for the 1.Liga Championships.

Roger Brunner (4-0) pitched a complete game for his fourth win of the season, scattering seven hits and allowing three runs - one of them unearned -, while also striking out eight.

The Challengers staked themselves to a 3-0 lead before even taking the field for the first time, and then never looked back.

Veteran Yves Huber went 2-for-4, and collected a career-high four RBI's.

Simon Saxer received four free passes and scored a game-high three times, and Nick Lehmann stole a career-high four bases.

With the Zurich Barracudas waiting in the Finals, the reality of an all-Zurich Finals is now just one win away.
