The NLB-Team swept the Zürich Barracudas on Sunday, May 11 at the Heerenschürli ballpark. The Barracudas scored twice in the first frame, but the Challengers took the lead in the third and never looked back for a 9-7 win in Game 1.
Oliver Christen tossed six plus innings of four-hit ball allowing four runs and five walks, while striking out seven. Kurt Kovac led the offense with two doubles, while Juan Carlos De la Rosa, Carlos Nepomuceno, Renzo Falcone and Daiki Sato delivered two hits apiece and Roger Burger and Gregory Zingg drove in two runs each in the bottom of the third inning for a 5-2 lead.
And the C's made it a perfect 4-0 start into the 2014 campaign as they posted a 15-8 victory in Game 2 to complete the sweep against their local rivals.
The C's will host the Hünenberg Unicorns on May 17.
