Challengers advance to Finals with 31-4 trashing of Bandits

The Challengers completely dominated the helpless Jona Bandits in the second game of the Best-Of-3 Semifinals Series for the promotion to the NLB, winning 31-4 in a loopsided contest.

Starter Thomas Burger went the distance, striking out 14 batters en route to his first win this season.

Daniel Maier was the only Bandit that had Burger's numbers, going a perfect 3-for-3.

On the Challengers' side, Nick Lehmann further pushed his team-leading batting average to a hefty .683 with five hits in seven at-bats.

Veterans Yves Huber and Roger Brunner each added four hits in a 30-hit attack, eliminating the winners of the 1.Liga Ost division in convincing fashion.

Next up are the Zurich Barracudas in the Finals Series, beginning next weekend.
