The Jona Bandits seem to be the most feared opponent for the Challengers NLB-Team in 2013. After two huge losses in July at Rapperswil-Jona the C's also lost Game 1 on Saturday, August 17 at the Heerenschürli ballpark. The Bandits built a 13-4 lead in the third inning, but the C's didn't give up and came within three runs, but eventually lost 17-20.
The C's showed in the second game of the day, what their game plan originally looked like, as Game 2 was all Challengers. Starter Yusuke Azuma allowed just two baserunners en route to an 11-0 shutout victory. The C's remain in fourth place with a 9-11 record. They will face next the third placed Sissach Frogs on August 24.
